This month at AC Bailey Designs I played with some papers from companies I had never used before and I loved them!

These first two pictures are using the Daisy Bucket Playlist papers. I also used the Prima Dude rubons and chipboard letters. They matched really well and I love how these turned out! The Aggie Fan layout was so fun to do. It just came together for me. I needed that to happen to help pump up my mojo too! hehe Actually, it helped a lot that I love this picture of Allison. She is such a Fightin' Texas Aggie fan! We had a blast at the Aggie vs. Texas Longhorn baseball game. She was a lot of fun to watch -- so glad I got this picture of her! Then next thing I need to scrap from that game are the pictures I got of Whit and her Daddy. They are pretty darn cute! The card & envelope were made using the same supplies. I made it for my sister's birthday. And get even got mailed! (I am notorious for making the card but not mailing it.)

This little mini album is one of the Bo Bunny word books. This is the I love you album. I used the Pink Paislee Office Ling papers on it. I totally have a crush on this company. So far I have loved everything I have seen from them. I am loving how this book turned out. I also used some Maya Road chipboard flowers and hearts. I worked on this when my best friend Aubrey came and stayed for about 3 days. I stole some glitter from her (okay she gave it to me) and blinged this album up a bit. I also discovered how to use gloss medium. Can I just say WAY FUN! And it looks pretty cool too!

Well, my sister, her kids, and my parents are at my house. Tomorrow the girls and I will be leaving for Oklahoma. We will be there for a few days and then head to Kansas for our family reunion. We'll be gone for about a week and a half.

When I get back I will need to get back in my classroom. It is a total wreck right now. I have things all over the place. This is what it looked like before the tornado (my 2 girls and myself) hit the classroom:

I'll have to post some of the classroom tornado pictures later. When I get back I'll take a few and post them. You have NO idea how back it is in there! Talk to you later!

Much love!

I need to post an update on here. We have been busy. Seems like so much has been going on.

Went to Oklahoma. Went to Kilgore. Those two trips were back to back weekends and we were worn out from all the driving. Fun, but glad to be back home.

I have also been working on my classroom trying to get things in order. First I had to pick a theme -- it took a while. I was having a brain block so I decided to steal my sister's idea and do monkeys. I really like how it is turning out so far. Way cute stuff at the teacher supply store. I also found some great stuff at Target. I {heart} that store. I have a lot of work to do still but it will get there.

The girls have been doing swimming lessons every morning at 8:00 these past two weeks. Friday is their last day. They have really enjoyed it.

On Saturday the 19th Mike's sister and kids will come to town for a wedding. They'll stay with usthat night. Then, on Monday the 21st, my parents, sister and her kids will be here to get me and the girls. We are following them to Oklahoma and then to Kansas for our first family reunion on my mom's side. I'm pretty excited about the reunion. Allison is too. She really enjoys visiting the Kansas family.

I have pictures to upload from the camera. I have some pictures from the 4th that I really like. Some fun family pictures. I also have some of the girls. They are such hams! Every time that camera is out Ally is posing! She is such a crack up!

Well, I didn't mean to ramble tonight. I'll do a better update tomorrow. And, I might even change the blog color. I think the pink is working my nerves. Got any color combo suggestions?

More later!

And, Happy Birthday to my little sis! She is 31 today! Yay! I am going to try to find some old pics of her and post them here. hehe She'll just love that... (Can you see my evil sneer?)

Hope you have a great day Mandy! Have fun at the beach!
