it's hip hop thuuuuuuuuursday!!


wut up!  i can not believe that summer is coming to an end!  i have been in my classroom the last two days getting everything ready for the upcoming school year.  ron came in and did some man stuff (heavy lifting, nailing, etc.) for me today.  but man, i have A LOT more to do!  august 19th will be rolling around way so quick.

since i am in a bit of denial about how fast things are approaching, let's just pretend it's about to be christmas break instead!  and to honor that, i will be giving away this stamp set:

just leave me a comment and i will pick a winner! :)

Monica said...

What a supersweet layout of your youngest daughter! She has the sweetest smile! I have a quick question - do you keep a notebook with you to remember all the cute things your kids say or what is your trick to your hilarious journaling? Thanks for the awesome Christmas stampset giveaway.

The layout is adorable. I just love the stamps and journaling you used. Just reading and looking at all the things you do on your pages just tells the moment. This set would be fun making Christmas cards this year. Thanks for a chance.

Jasmine said...

Ha, ha...my kids say that about every place we go to: "They had the best _____ (insert favorite food of the moment here)I ever had." Cute LO, and that stamp set is super cute too!! A girl could make some super cute tags with those!!

What a sweet layout for a sweet girl. Love the cupcake! I wish it could be August forever, but, still nice to play with Christmas ideas before the craziness of the shopping season starts.

FibreJunky said...

How like a kid. My son chooses Taco Bell for his birthday dinners. A sophisticated palette he does not yet have.

Some day I would love to sit and look through your scrapbooks. I bet there are all kinds of great pages in there that we never get to see.

BJ said...

OMG my daughter would so agree that would be a fancy dinner! I love that page!!!!!

Have fun with the start of school if I don't get the chance to say it later! *hugs*

aknancy said...

I'm with you...cannot believe it is already August. But unfortunately, up here in Alaska, summer has yet to arrive and I am afraid this rain is going to transition into snow toooo soon. So I guess I could just start working on Christmas stuff and feel 'right at home' :)

Emily said...

I don't want christmas to be already!!! I just love your blog!! How many pages do you get done a wk??? I have a 5 month old that keeps me up till I have to go to work so I don't get much done...thanks for making me laugh!!!
