When you haven't done a thing, you just pretend...

This isn't done, but fearing a deluge of emails from my friends saying I was shirking my blogging responsibility I thought just post the dang project unfinished. So here it is. Much like me...almost done, but never quite there.







These were chipboard tags I found at Paper Source. I covered them with pattern paper from one of my Studio Calico kits, slapped on some Moo photos and kaiser wooden flowers and then had each kid sign their name. Voila! This portion is done. The back is not. On the back I am making up a short questionnaire for them to answer. I want them to write it out with their own handwriting. The tags are all attached with a nut and long screw. I think previously I mentioned wanting to use hardware. Well, this is a start. The Sawzall comes out next week.

I did another mini-album last week. Due to my procrastinating the creating almost did me and I swore off mini's for life. I am over that. I'm a dweeb. Basically, it was a challenge set by Barb at Studio Calico. She had ten questions that you were to answer and create a layout. Fun challenge. Here is a photo summary of the book.









The rest can be seen on the member gallery at Studio Calico.

Alrighty...school started this week. The boys - not too excited - started on Tuesday. The girl - almost wet her back with excitement. She started on Thursday. She loves Kindergarten so much that when her mom (my sister) has gone to pick her up each day she can't find her. Each day this little girls runs to the lunchroom and tries to sneak a free lunch with the "all day" kids in her class. The teacher has ok'd that Em can now stay and have lunch with her class. How could you turn away any kid that actually wants to stay at school? A few photos:



Well, that is it from here. Happy weekend to all.

i didn't misspell 'hair'...that's supposed to be 'are'. and i think i may have just misspelled 'misspell'. it looks funny, but i'm certain it's correct.

and i just left two comments on the same post.
