Good Luck with School Megan.......

Wow....It's Monday already, and the three day weekend is coming to an end (sad face ). I did have a great weekend though. Saturday the hubby, the kids and I had hung around and did errands, and then we went to dinner. Sunday, We went to The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in Plum Island, and had a FANTASTIC time. Hurricane Earl just passed us by and with it's passing it brought the shore some treasures (for us anyway). Usually, at the beaches up her in the NorthEast, we have your average clam, and snail shells, and sometimes if you're lucky, you will find a small sand dollar, but yesterday, we hit the mother load (as my kids would say). We found HUGE snail, Giagantic clam shells, and TONS of sand dollars, along with a few washed up lobster traps. The water was calm, and the weather was gorgeous, and because the weather man have scared the pants off people up here about the water being rough and all, the beach was EMPTY!!! Lucky us! Today, my hubby to the kids to go visit his parents, and I stayed behind to get caught up on things. You know, laundry, and cards (hehehe), and tomorrow is my 1st day of Nursing School (GULP), so I need to get my stuff together!

My card today is for a friend of mine that I met in college, and she is a amazing person. She is a single mom of two girls, works full time, and is just starting nursing school full time. Like I said, she is amazing, and such a sweet heart of a person. The sad part is, we have had a bunch of classes together, but this year, we are going to different schools, both in pursuit of our nursing degree. I am going miss her. I can still hear her saying "Dude, relax, you're crazy, ad your starting to freak me out"!...So Meg, if you're reading this, I am going to miss having classes with you, but we'll always have Applebee's! Good Luck with school girl!


For my card today, I used Pinky from Tiddly Inks, AND for the first time ever, I used Digital paper. You know whats fantastic, Tiddly Inks sells Digital paper that matches perfectly with their images. I LOVE IT!!! I need digi paper to match everything (hehehe). I have also made this card to fit into their challenge this week, Their theme is Goodbye summer! Nothing says goodbye summer like the words "Welcome back to school".

My card today is also designed for this weeks Critter Sketch Challenge! The sketch was wonderfully designed by Melanie, owner of Critter Sketch, and they are being sponsored by Sew Many cards this week.

Well, that is all for me today. I guess I should do some laundry of something (hahaha). Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! I am going to leave you with some photos of the beach yesterday. Have a great day!
