Tea time!

Good Morning Stampers! I don't have a stamping project to share today, but I just HAD to share my weekend with ya'! My daughter is LOVING Tea parties lately! She is always setting them up in her room or on the deck with her baby dolls! She even wants to have a tea party themed birthday party (it's not until Aug....but if you have passed her on the streets or on the playground have been invited!!!!) ;o) So, I thought it would be cute to take her to a "Real Life Tea Party" and we had a BLAST! It was such a great day! The tea party started off at the children's bookstore behind the Tea Room where we listened to the story "The Ladybug Girl and Bumble Bee Boy" (ADORABLE BOOK!) and then they made ladybug wings and ladybug headband! Then all the little girls walked over (in their wings!) to the tea room and had a Ladybug Tea! Elle & her friend, Katelyn, had so much fun, sipping lemonade from "real" tea cups, stirring sugar cubes, eating scones and peanut butter & jelly finger sandwiches and trying on huge "tea party hats"....... this was a day to remember!!!! When she went to sleep last night she told me thank you for such a great day, and then asked if we could go to another tea party tomorrow! What a great way to start our Spring Break!!! A day I will always cherish!(how cute are these ladybugs!!!)

(I think this hat makes me look like the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz!!) Yikes!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and I hopefully will find some time today to stamp!!! (fingers crossed!) Chat with you soon!!

Happy Spring!

Hi Stampers! Hope this post is finding you enjoying warm weather! I think Mother Nature finally got my email and is sending us warmer weather these days! ;o) Now....if I could just figure out who I need to email to get some more hours added on to each day....I will be one happy camper! Lately I have been remembering what it feels like being in school and anxiously awaiting Spring Break! Now that I am a preschool teacher, I am REALLY looking forward to the week long break!

This is a small post today, just wanted to say hello to all of you and show you a Spring card I just did. My daughter LOVES pinwheels these days, and so I was thinking "Hmm...what kind of card can I make for Spring" and pinwheels popped into my head! I am not totally sold on this card ....yet! I think it needs a little something added to I will call it a "work in progress" but for now, it's kinda cute & simple! It is using the AWESOME Sweat Pea Designer Series Paper. I love this huge paper pack!! I also put the tempting turquoise cs through the Big Shot to add the big circles texture! I'll let you know if I add something else to the card!

Hope it puts a smile on your face! And I'll be back with more, just as soon as I can!
