Monday Nap Man and some fun news!

Happy Monday,

Did you have a nice weekend?  We sure did. The weather was awesome and relatively cool so we hung outside a bit.  I also did some last minute summer cleaning- going through drawers and pitching socks that don't fit anymore and replacing with new school socks for the boys etc.  I love the organizing of it all!

My littlest one starts Preschool 2 today.  He is so excited to go to his new room and be with his new teacher.  I also start back to school today.  We have 2 days of inservice and then the kids come.  I am not a fan of inservice days but it is nice to be eased back in to the routine of getting up everyday at 4:45 am.  It has been nice all summer to sleep in till 6:30.  Back to the routine.  Jack doesn't start till tomorrow.  My mom is hanging out with him.  He was pretty excited to hang out with her!

I had some more time to scrap just for me these past several weeks and I have been wanting to scrap these photos of Jack. Last year he was so tired so he went upstairs to rest. Of course, he took his favorite toys with him- Bat Man!   He fell sound asleep holding on to his favorite figure!  When I went in to get him I knew I had to take a photo.  It has been over a year that I have hung on to this photo but I knew I wanted this layout to be special so I broke out some Crate Paper.  I have had this collection for awhile now and it was just perfect for my photos.  I just love all the chipboard embellishments!  I love the title- Nap Man!
Supplies
paper- chipboard- brads- crate period
mist- mister huey

I also had some fun news last week!  Erica, from the Stringery ( an etsy shop), has asked me to be a part of her design team.  Of course I said yes!  Who wouldn't want to play with fun ribbon and twine!  Head on over to her shop for some amazing ribbon and twine!  Click HERE  I can't wait to play with all the fun items she has in her shop!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will see you tomorrow with a new project!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
