Oh dear, where do i begin? WHERE HAVE I BEEN, you ask? ; )
... or should i start with a simple Hello.. : )
I can't believe school is out.. here are my sweet darlin's on their first day of school back in September. Alyssa was so excited to go to school with her big brother....In the next few posts i'll share some current photos. I can't believe how much Ethan has "grown" up since then...
June was a super busy month. The kids kept me busy with their year end school activities along with all their other activities wrapping up; dance recital, hockey playoffs and baseball practices and games. Ethan's class had about 5 field trips in ONE month...they went to the zoo, they had a day at the beach, spent an afternoon at the water park and another afternoon at the swimming pool. They had a gorgeous sunny day for sports day. And to keep us hopping we spent everyday of the last 3 weeks of june at the ball park. Ethan tried out for and made the All Star team for baseball. --proud mommy smile : ). So the team practiced for two weeks straight and then played in a 5 day tournament. Will share more deets and photos with the coaches cards i created in posts to come.
So that left very little time for crafting. The crafting i did do was stamping on the fly! I created teacher cards, baseball coaches, dance teacher thank yous and hockey treats but sadly i didn't have much time to write and share with you all at the time everything was going on. My computer time was very limited... i don't think i turned on my computer until yesterday! I can't say i was home enough to sit down and enjoy a quiet moment.
This is a card i created for Ethan's teacher. Since i had very limited time to craft i created something quick but of course cute.
I used the Fashionable Heart Emboslit, turning the heart into a cute little apple. I used the paper snips to shape the bottom of the heart and added a stem and leaf at the top. I used half of the smallest heart on the Emboslit to create the leaf.
I had Ethan write a little note on what he "liked" about school this year. I was shocked he wrote that he enjoyed math and science! Every time i picked him up from school i asked how school was and he'd say "i hate school..it's boring"... so phewwwwwwww glad he didn't write that.. : )
(if you click on the photo you can get a better view of what he wrote)
For Teacher's appreciation day i made these darlin apple cupcakes! They turned out great! The teacher's said they were to cute to eat but that didn't stop them from digging in.. : )
I stumbled across the idea and recipe here and couldn't wait to make them.
Enjoy!-- they would make a great back to school treat for the teachers. ; )
Hope you like : )
