Color Me Back


Well, we are back from vacation! It had been 3 years since my kiddos had seen their cousins and grandparents. It was a fabulous time full of food, sun, and touring, despite my 11 year old's broken foot. The crutches were an added bonus for the trip. A summer to remember on so many levels! :)

I honestly think you need to have a vacation from your vacation! Laundry, cleaning, paying bills...it is difficult to get caught back up! Needless to say, blogging took a backseat and I am finally on top of things again...for now. ;)

This week at SSDS we are playing with color!! Use creme, brown and one other color of your choice for a chance to win a fabulous prize with Circle B Enterprises! I had fun pulling out a Verve set that had never been used as well as using up some of my hoarded Prima flowers. :)

For some fun news...I finally found a great job! I start on Monday...full time this week for orientation and then down to 16 hours a week. I am thrilled, excited, and honored to be back in my field!

Have a great week!
