An ode to school...
Holiday Jumpstart!

You're on my mind...

 Where have I been?  I don't know....floundering around, trying to find our rhythm in this new school schedule....trying to knock off some assignments that have been weighing on my mind...trying to tame our two-year-old attitude that's missing big brother and sister.  She actually thought she needed to sit on my lap while I was in the bathroom the other day.  She's feeling a little lonely.  :-)  I haven't forgotten about this little blog...it just seems like when life gets away from me this is, unfortunately, one of the first things that gets moved to the back burner.  So, be patient with me....hopefully we'll be back to a better schedule soon. 

So, not much in the way of things I can actually share here right now....but there are a few things!   First is a card based on this week's CPS sketch.  We were sponsored by Jen Buck, independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Thanks, Jen, for all the wonderful goodies this week.  Here is my take on the sketch using the Oval All stamp set and Razzleberry Lemonade papers.

Loved these papers...the colors are beautiful -- bright, yet soft...love that look.

And then just a fun little card using that cute dandelion cut from the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge.

Thanks-Dandelion 

I've been liking this smaller card size...it measures 4 1/4" square.  I added a little Papertrey grosgrain ribbon (my personal fav) and a Mega Mixed Messages sentiment stamped on a Cuttlebug tag.

Oh, and one more thing...I think I had better clear up a little misunderstanding....in my last post I think some of you took that I landed a Jillibean gig...and while I would love that, it is not the case!  But, what is happening is that my guest stay with CPS has turned into a permanent thing!  Just as fun, I think!  :-)  Sorry to mislead you all.   

Ok, I'd better get crackin'.  September may just be the end of me if I don't get some things knocked off my list.  Thanks for stopping by.  :-)
