A Summer Banner

I had to laugh as I started to post is so like me to wait till summer is almost over to show you the banner I made for "summer". Here we are 4 days till school starts and I am just now getting around to taking pics and posting about this!! It has been the busiest summer we have ever had! Fun, but super busy! So forgive me...I really hope to show you the fall one I want to make in the fall, not in like in January or something! :)
I used a Scrap Kit for this banner. I loved the bright colors in the kit and thought they were perfect summery colors. The letters are printed from the computer from one of my fonts. I cut out each one and then glued and glittered section by took forever and I was covered in glitter for about 3 days! It turned out cute though, so it was worth it!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Tomorrow starts our tax-free weekend so the kids and I are getting up early to head out school clothes shopping. We are hoping to avoid some of the crowds by going early! Monday is the day...boy school snuck up on me this year!!!

More Secret Sister Goodies

Origami Box
Candy Treat Boxes (with the twisty ends)
Here are a couple of the other goodies we made for Kailee's secret sister this week at camp. We called the mom and asked her a few questions about what some of the favorites were. She told us any kind of candy that is not chocolate (which is good becuz it wouldn't have survived in this Texas heat!) and that her favorite colors were blue, peach and pink. So we made the Origami Box and filled it with Jolly Ranchers. The twisty boxes are ones that were shown on the demo side of the Stampin' Up! website. If you are interested in the template just email me and I will share it with you! :) The twisty boxes are filled with Skittles and Dum Dums! I made these boxes can check this post to see a picture of the whole thing.
Have a great evening and great day tomorrow! Thanks for coming by!

Pencil Flowers

Hey's been a while! No good excuse just the same old story...busy, busy, busy! Shawners is gone this week in Puerto Rico (tough job huh?), Kailee is going to be at Girls Camp this week and so it will just be me and the boys! On Friday my mom, dad, sister and niece will all be here. They are visiting from Seattle! I can't wait till they get here and then for Kailee and Shawn to get home this weekend! I have some fun things planned! :)
At Girls Camp, all the girls are given a secret sister. Kailee has to leave 4 little gifts for her "secret sister" throughout the week. This is so fun to do...there is a $5.00 limit. I love that cuz then we have to be super creative to think of some fun things! This is one of the gifts we made. We used a little vase I have had sitting in my "had to have and couldn't leave the store without it and now it's collecting dust on a shelf" stash! We used the Kaleidoscope dsp. After the pencils were done we finished the vase off with an "S" for her name.
Gotta run...I am taking Austin to see Transformers 2, he still hasn't seen it yet and I told him I would take him since I know he will be a huge help to me this week as the "Man of the House"! :)
Hope you have a great at ya later!

Thank U

Good Monday Morning! I was up early today...trying to get myself back into that school routine! I have to say that I think I hate waking up early more than the kids do! I love my summertime sleeping in days! Tyson is at Science Camp this week so it helps that I have to be up and ready to take him...I needed a little push to help get me back to the routine!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! This is a card that I just love! It uses a old set but I haven't been able to part with it! I just love the giant "U". This was one of the first sets I bought when I started stamping and this card layout is one that I cased from a friend and love to use! I have used it alot over the years if I am feeling stuck. It shows off the gorgeous dsp used and it's a simple one to make! I did the 'rock 'n' roll' technique on the U. That is a fun one too!
THANKS for all the nice comments all my blogging gals!
