An Apple For The Teacher

Here is that card I mentioned that I made the other day when Denise and I were scrapping. I used this card as my example for my Sketches4All Card Challenge. The challenge is to make an Easel Card. I am kind of hooked on Easel cards right now. They are super simple to make but seem to be a bit cooler. I recently got this awesome new Imaginisce paper in yummy fall colors and couldn't wait to use it. I decided to use one of the papers that has apples on it and make a card for one of my kid's teachers.

What do you think?? Too many apples?? Nah... Really...can there be too many apples??!! lol Of course there can't! Don't you just love that paper!! Maybe I have been using to many sunny summery colored papers but these luscious warm fall colors are just calling to me right now.

You can go enter my S4A challenge if you are interested it is still going on and there will be a RAK for the winner.

I really had a great birthday this year. I loved getting to celebrate with Denise and her family and it was wonderful that my brother was also here visiting us. They had a little party for me on Monday night since Denise had to go home on Tuesday. And yesterday (on my actual bday) we took the kids out to eat Mexican food (yum!) for lunch and then I got to spend the afternoon reading. (an activity I usually leave until after the kids go to bed. Relaxing and fun. I'm a very lucky girl.

My dd (the one who broke her finger) has a healed finger and is now going to physical therapy. This a bit of a challenge since she is only 3 and easily loses interest. She went for the first time today and did pretty well.

School starts for my 5 kids on Monday. I'm not sure we are ready. The kids are still on summer bedtime which is later than school bedtime. And this year the schools start really early. (7:30am) I personally an NOT looking forward to getting up at 5am to get everyone ready and off to school on time. Wish me luck! ha I did finally finish getting the two little ones enrolled!! (nothing like waiting until the last second! ha)

Okay, that is enough for tonight. Come back tomorrow because I am doing a post right after I finish this one that will be showing up on my blog tomorrow. It is one you will want to check out.... HUGS!
