This, That and a Bit of Everything ...

I can't remember how long it has been that I have been so relaxed. I slept in, left the laundry and housework and enjoyed the sunny weather, family and friends! It started out on Saturday morning when I received a gorgeous card in the mail from my sister Marie (sorry Marie, I haven't figured out how to link to your blog). Isn't her card gorgeous!!!

I spent the day relaxing with my children and ended the evening by crafting with my 8yr old daughter, Kaetlyn. She made this birthday card for her friend - I was so proud of her! (And by the way - yes, they talk on the phone all the time! What do 8yr olds have to talk about for an hour?)

On Sunday, my friend Sandra and her family joined us for some poolside fun. The kids had a blast- two of mine are in the goggles and the others are friends. Loved listening to their laughter!

I couldn't let Sandy leave without introducing her to the wonderful word of stamping and paper crafting ... she needed no guidance - she's a natural! The top card is hers and the bottom is mine - she blew me away!

I ended up playing with the new Stampin Up IN colors - I love making Jr. Legal pad holders. I used the stamp set True Friends!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Samie,
It is nice to relax with family and have some pool fun.
You are an amazing lady! I don't know how you can do it with 5 kids, collage, daycare and being a demo. I got so tired after watching my 2 nieces for only a week. sigh!
The cards your friend made are lovely and your 8 years old daughter's card is so cute. The legal pad holder is beautiful with the In Color!
Congratulations on becoming a demo!
