iClassygirl. I wasn't able to get very good pictures because of where I was sitting in the auditorium and the music stands. I used the DCWV Latte paper pack, some leftover stickers from my stash and the cricut quarter note cartridge to cut the clarinet. DD has done very well this year in the band and has maintained her 'first chair" status which makes us proud. Have a great weekend!

Welcome to another edition of Wednesday Wanderings! This is the last week of school for our daughter and I'm doing a happy dance because we made it through 6th grade! It has been a year of mixed emotions for everybody; so when the notice came home about the 6th grade awards ceremony she promptly informed me that I didn't have to attend. Of course my feelings were hurt and I didn't know how to take the comment, she followed it with her teachers had been telling them that this is middle school and you had to do something 'award worthy' to be recognized. In my mind she had been a good student so she should be recognized, I didn't say anything I just decided maybe she just didn't want me to be there front and center camera in hand! So when I picked her up yesterday she was dancing a gig running to show me her awards, I was so mad that I had let her deprive me of that moment, she received 4 awards and I wasn't there to see it. She got scolded by her older brother who reminded her that he had to go through and she has to do the same! My husband on the other hand said to me when did you start listening to a 12 year old? So lesson learned!

Scraps of Color family during the Friday Night Chat. Our host for the evening was Tiare from iClassygirl, she posted one of her sketches and our challenge was to create a LO and a card. The example of her LO that she shared included a fold so another part of the challenge was to use a fold on our LO. Last Sunday we attended a scholarship banquet and since all of my mother-in-law's grandchildren were in attendance we took some pictures. I used one of the pictures that I took on this LO along with some CTMH paper, trim from Recollections and I even pulled out my Cricut and cut the title using the Phrases cartridge. I was under a tight time constraint last night and did not staple my fan-fold together until this morning. I was reading a SOC blog post recently where the designer's post was about using staples and I used staples on this LO for the fan fold and the trim! Another memory documented, keeping it simple and scrappin' my stash! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

iClassygirl, stop by her blog if you are looking for some inspiration. She recently started hosting a monthly pajama party where you can sign up to join her as she scrapbooks live via Spreecast. I used Recollections cardstock for the base and the pattern paper came from a kit that I purchased from TM a long time ago, I also used some of the embellishments from the paper pack.

Clean & Simple Stamping. The sketches are just my style! I used a kraft paper card base, papers from an Echo Park 6x6 paper pad, my cuttlebug for the embossing the flower and bling center are both from Recollections. I am gearing up for another busy week but I hope to finish up a LO that I started last week. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and a great week.
