{One Day My Prince Will Come}

Let the wedding scrapbooking begin! My daughter was recently a flower girl in our friends' Memorial Day weekend celebration. I just go the pictures back and well, they're amazing lol.

I used a sketch at Let's Get Sketchy for photos of her with the ring bearer.

I used some papers and embellishments from my stash (which is out of the box for me, I like using coordinating papers from a collection):

Happy sigh.. aren't they just the cutest?!

A Special Graduation!

I just finished my 12th year of teaching first grade. Do the math and you'll find my first students just walked across the stage in their caps and gowns - oh how they've grown into wonderful young men and women! A coworker (who also shared in the joy of her first class graduating) and I attended graduation and were SO proud to congratulate them all in person. I took my first grade class photo from 2004 and held it in this photo of my "little Nate". That bright smile has not changed, even though he's now a foot taller than me!

I used the awesome Bella Blvd "Star Student' collection - with Brenda's sketch:

I am also entering it into Rochelle's challenge:

I have those cute owls on my page :)
Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!


You're One Smart Cookie!

The minute I saw this lil Lawn Fawn set, I knew it had to come home with me. I am a first grade teacher who loves puns - and can see making toppers with set for a lil bag of cookies for my kids who do great on an assignment.

Those kids - they grow up. And my first class first graders JUST graduated {layout coming later today with THOSE pics!} - so I have some graduation cards to make also.

I stamped and embossed the diploma on the cardstock base to make my own patterned paper. I also went with our school colors of white, red and black. I paired the stamp set up with Quinn's ABCS, too!

I am linking up with the Lawn Fawn challenge - oh how I would LOVE to get those mermaids for my daughter's Ariel themed party!

Have a great weekend!

Best Dad in the Sea!

Wahoo! 10 days early and my Father's Day card is DONE! :)
The sketch at Mojo Monday was perfect for my idea:

A little backstory .... every night my hubby reads this book to our almost 3 year old daughter. She is really into Finding Nemo right now (a nice break from Little Mermaid lol).

And for Father's Day, I am surprising him with tickets to see Finding Dory in 3D at the iMax theater - it will be her first theater movie. He will be SO excited! (because let's face it we are more excited about Finding Dory than I think she is haha!)

I teach - Whats your superpower?

HELLOOOOO Summer Vacation!! :)

Hence my first layout in a LONG time. And guess what? IT'S ABOUT SCHOOL!! LOL!

When I saw this month's sketch at Creative Scrappers.. I knew those stars would be perfect for my superhero themed layout.

Superheroes and school.. you're wondering what's the connection, right?  Well, each year for Teacher Appreciation Week our PTO goes all out with a theme and this year was TEACHERS ARE HEROES. Pretty awesome right?

I spent my first and last time in HOT TOPIC on a Sunday night looking for the perfect superhero shirt to wear to school on that Monday and so glad I did! They  had the whole lobby decorated with skyscrapers, stars, and a telephone booth (( had to explain that one to the kids!! )) Insert I feel old now sigh here.

This slogan was hanging on all of our doors, along with attributes that make us a great hero :) So clever and fun and APPRECIATED. 

Side note - how fun is that Wonder Woman flair?! My hubby voted for that and got vetoed. My last name starts with S so my first graders loved my shirt and thought it stood for ME. lol!

Thanks for stopping by today - have a GREAT week!
