Almost packed and ready to go!

This weekend I am headed to a women's camp with some ladies from my church. I am so looking forward to coming back spiritually and mentally refreshed!

The last time I attended this particular camp, I took my 5 mo old nursing baby....who is now 4!! Wow. Time goes so quickly.

The biggest bummer about going away this weekend is that I will be gone on my husband's and my 11th anniversary. He promised it was okay, so I decided to go. We really weren't going to have a big celebration anyway, but it still feels a little weird! Last year, for our tenth, we went away for a fun weekend....just the two of us. Ahhh, what a great time :)

This week I haven't had much time for creating but I did make these cards:
This one is based on Janelle's sketch #67 over at Sketch This. I just adore Janelle's sketches, don't you?!
And here is one I made for our friend who is having a princess Birthday party on Sunday afternoon :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Back to the normal routine.

We are finally getting into our new routine around here and it feels GOOD! It's so nice to be familiar with all of our activities so I know what is coming next, and feel organized. I love that about really feels like "normal", you know?
Here are a few cards I've made recently:
This one is for the Sketch This blog. I loved all of the creations from all of the designers this week....really beautiful cards and pages!!
These next two cards I made for the Daisy Bucket Designs blog. They are both tri-fold cards. So fun to use....there are so many ways to flip and fold them!

With this one, I simply used the scalloped "flap" on the outside of the card so it opens as a normal card would.

And, this little one I just made for fun...used a few little scraps that I thought looked good together, a "vintage" flower from my Mom's stash :) and some new pretty pink pearls. Thought it would make a nice thank you for a teacher.
don't know why, since the spelling is incorrect ;)

Thank {U....(heehee) for checking in here! Hope the rest of your week is great!

A couple cards to share...

I have been meaning to post this first card since Tuesday...I've been so busy, though, and haven't had a chance to get to it until this morning.

So, this one was for Sketch #65 over at Sketch This! If you have a minute, check out all of the other cuties over there from the DT :)

Made this one last night (after we got home from the HS football game). It is based on Kazan's sketch at 2S4Y.

Ah, Fall! I love, crisp weather, wearing sweaters, the back to school excitement, and the spicy smells of pumpkin and cinnamon! I had my first pumpkin spice latte yesterday and it got me in the mood for more pumpkin. I am going to make this SUPER yummy cake to take to our friend's house tonight....mmmm :) If you like pumpkin, you have to try this will love it!!

Have a great weekend!
