Happy Birthday Kyle!!

Yes, it's very hard to believe, but my "baby" is 7 today!  And this was the best of about a dozen shots if you can believe it!  hee hee

He had sort of a funny day because he had an hour and a half of school and it was essentially an assembly for the Grade 7 "graduation".  Usually, the Kindergarten kids give roses to the Grade 7s, but there weren't enough, so Kyle and a couple of kids in his class got to help as well.  The kids played a little while after school and then we were done there for the year!  Crazy!

Sophia is sick today, so I have Matthew, but not her.  Tracy wanted some ginger ale and Gravol for her, so the boys and I went and got a few things to take over there.  We didn't stay, but headed back here for lunch instead.  Matthew is napping and Kyle is waiting for me to finish so he can play computer while Nathan plays with the new Star Wars toys that Kyle got for his birthday!

This is the card I gave Kyle's teacher with her end of the year present which was a gift card for Staples and the following...

This was a card organizer that I saw online and used this fun Piggy Tales Thumbelina paper for.  I have seen a few tutorials and videos for this, so check them out and try it!  I alternated patterned paper and cardstock pages in mine.  Such a great gift and quite easy after the first one! Another great Bind It All project too!  The first tutorial link has the calendar pages I used inside it as well!

Well, think that's about it!  Oh I had a wonderful mail day yesterday...

I didn't have time to play with it yesterday, but I got my first Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients package and a few extra goodies I ordered as well (like the bag of buttons!)!  Check out the link to see all the goodies and why I'm so excited!  Yeah! 

Hope to play a little tonight with any luck though we're going out for dinner to Denny's  - at Kyle's request!  And then we're having George's parents over for cake and presents as well.  Maybe after everyone's in bed...

Happy belated birthday to Kyle! Sounds like a wonderful day - only 1.5hrs of school, new toys, dinner out. :)

Your teacher card & gift are fabulous! I need to try that card organzier sometime. Just haven't had scrappy mojo lately. Need to find it soon though!
