Avery has been in the 4 year old class since August 2008. Most of her class is heading to Kindergarten next year, but because she has a late birthday, she'll be in the 4 year old class again. She was so excited to see her classmates graduate. She even let me wash and fix her hair - and of course, a brand new dress!
Here's Avery watching the action...
After the ceremony we took pictures with all of her friends - here are the "avery's" (Avery B and Avery R)
After graduation, Avery went back to school for Water Day and I went home to bed! But, of course, I couldn't sleep, so I decided to play with paper. And when I say paper, I mean SCRAPS! I had a fourth of a sheet of flowered paper from my friend Melanie. Then I pulled out tons of scraps in the same color palette and started cutting them into strips. The strips became my background, and I cut the flowers out of Melanie's sheet.
THEN, I went through my chipboard letters and picked out any ones that "kind of" matched. All in all, a decent layout - all with leftovers!
Then I turned my attention to the cutest Pink Paislee flowers I bought this week.
I LOVE the pinking shear edge. I love the inked edge. I love the button. What I don't love is that the pack is $4.50 AND there are only two colors! So once again, I turned to the scraps...
Voila! I may start making these with all of my scraps and add them to my flower stash. All different sizes and paper combos. I am lovin' these!
Lastly, I haven't a pulled a winner yet from the $11 layout post because Denise hasn't sent out the MASS e-mail to everyone. Only a few of you know about the drawing, but in the meantime, I found two layouts that I will sell at the store. I have two of the "You Bug Me" layout and three of the "Xtreme" layout. There are already assembled and they are $11. If you want one, post a comment or e-mail me and I'll hold it for you. Otherwise, on the wall they go.
One day soon, I will have a scraproom filled very carefully with only my most favorite and necessary items - the clutter makes me crazy!
Hope you are having a good weekend and finding a reason to laugh out loud...
