I stopped everything on my "To Do" list to play. I was inspired by this week's Get Sketchy Challenge and the inspiration challenge at BasicGrey Challenges. I used BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers (I can't seem to put them away; I've used them on my August 21st and September 2nd posts, and you will be seeing it again for my Cuttlebug post this Wednesday.) Do you do that? When I first purchased My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow, I had to put it away because I knew I would want to use it for every card :)
I apologize for my utter lack of blog commenting this month. The end of summer was so hectic preparing for school, and last week was crazy busy for the first week back. Our computer acted wonky off and on all last week, then died Friday. Ack! I have lost so many emails. Thank you for still coming by to see me; I treasure all of the lovely comments you left me! I hope I can keep up with my blog reader starting today; so you'll be reading comments from me soon.
The first week of school was fabulous. With the girls gone, I was able to take care of oodles of errands and chores (but no crafting or blog visiting). The girls have wonderful teachers this year, and both girls had a great first week of school. Friday, September 11th, was a terrific day in particular. I have 3 friends who were born on Septmber 11th...Tracy, Amy, and Jean). I enjoyed breakfast and craft time with my Design Diva friends (Deanna, Sheryl, and Chris). Then I left to have a birthday lunch with Tracy and our friend Mary. Later that evening my daughter, Julia, lost her first tooth! Her twin sister, Kathryn, has lost 4 and has had a loose tooth (#5) for at least a month. I love all the differences between these two cuties---Kathryn will have a loose tooth for MONTHS. Julia discovered her tooth was a little loose on Labor Day. She went OCD over it (I wonder who she gets that from...LOL), and four days later it's out :)
Saturday morning I went to Amy's house and wished her a belated happy birthday (I did call her on Friday, though!)
It is so good to be back in blogland...
