I've been busy these past few days. I wish I could say it was mostly scrapbooking or stamping but it hasn't been. With the end of the school year approaching, it seems they are trying to cram as much as possible into the 3 weeks they have left. I am room parent for Holden and Haley so that means being involved in all this stuff. Well, I learned my lesson and think that next year I will let someone else take the reins.

It was a beautiful day here and the kids spent most of it outdoors. I am thankful for that since I needed to do some heavy duty cleaning. Of course being outdoors usually means that they are tearing everything they can out of the garage. I walked out to to throw out the trash and found Holden and Harrison washing and waxing the John Deere Gator with David's expensive car wash stuff. They knew they were in trouble because they took of running around the house.

I did manage to get a little creative work done the past few days. I finished up 12 cards for a card swap. The stamp set is Unfrogettable from Stampin' Up. The colors are Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Bashful Blue, also from Stampin' Up. I love this set.

I also finished a page layout challenge from my Yahoo scrapbook group Scrapbookingfriends. The challenge was to do a layout using specific instructions in the exact order they were given. It was a little tough for me but I think that it turned out okay.
One of my favorite stamp sites A Muse is holding weekly contests where you can win free Merchandise. It’s already the third week that this is going on, but you can still join in the fun. Check the A Muse blog for details on the contest then check out this weeks sketch challenge.
