Back to School...And An Exciting Announcement!

All the boys, with the exception of Marcel (who starts pre-school in a few weeks), are back to school today.  Back packs are packed and ready to go...and several school supplies were already dropped off at school for meet the teacher.

Sports are in full swing...Jonathon had his first football game on Sunday, Ryan has his tomorrow and Collin has his first soccer game of the season on Saturday.   Busy...but love it too. 

If you're back to school, hope everything is going well as your children adapt to their new teachers and friends!  I'll be sure to post some first day pictures soon!
Now...onto a card to share.  I love pink and green...and paired with teal it is a bright and cheery combination!  This is the Just Us Girls Challenge for this week...and guess what?  I'm so psyched...Pam asked me to be a Guest Designer for September.  How awesome is that?  Can't wait to play along each week!

Ingredients:  SU Melon Mambo Paper/Ink, Taken with Teal Ink; Old Olive Paper; Bazzill Basics Ribbon; PTI Ink Fillable Frames Stamps and Die, Mat Stack Die; SU Texture Plate Large Dots

Congrats on your guest design team spot! Love the embossed dots on this card, and how they mimic the little dots of your stamped frame. Hope all goes well with school.
