School days, school days...

Incase anyone was wondering, no, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I was fortunate enough to get a job at a local elementary school and have started working FULL TIME for the first time in oh, about 9 years! Not counting the whole mother thing, of course. The boys all started school yesterday and 2 of them attend the school I work at, so it's been wonderful being able to see them, even for a second here and there, throughout the day. Helps me to not feel like a bad mom for getting a job, kwim? That being said, if anyone has spare energy and mojo they'd like to send my way, it would be GREATLY appreciated! ha! I get home and all I can think of is S-L-E-E-P! Guess you can call me a wuss til I get used to this routine.
So, as soon as I find my mojo and a spare few minutes, I'll post a new creation!

Thanks for peeking in!

A cameo pop flower

Is that what these are called?? Ya know, when you make a flower just from tearing some paper in a circle? Anyhoo, this is my first time making one of these and yes, I was trying to channel the uber-talented Divine Ms. Dawn McVey while I was making this. (a link to her blog is on my sidebar) Very simple card w/ a little stamping. The sentiment is from Flourishes Sweet Violets set. The small text on the blush layer and celery leaves is from the CDS Gladiolas set. I cuttlebugged the top portion of my ivory layer then added this yum-0 ribbon that I have yards and yards of, but have yet to use because it's just so darn pretty! Added a button w/ hemp and used my loopy border punch again (*loooove it*). I also made this for Flourished birthday blog challenge. Tell me whatcha think ~
Thanks for stopping by ~~~
