Monday School Days

Happy Monday

Did you have a great weekend?  We sure did!  It was just nice to have a semi calm weekend.  Jack had his first Lacrosse practice and he really liked it.  The coach and helpers were just awesome and he really learned a lot.  Then on Sunday Jeff and Jack went to the Bengals game.  Michael and I stayed home and we broke out our fall home decor and set up our mantel and pulled out the fall towels and so forth.  I also got some crafting done.  Love it when I can craft just for me!

Last Friday was a really cool day for me because my projects that I made for We R Memory Keepers debuted on their facebook page. Last month I was contacted by We R and they asked me if I wanted to play with this collection and make some projects for their Facebook page.  Well of course, my answer was YES! and   I was so excited.  Here is my first project.  I LOVE printer's treys because they make THE perfect home decor item.  I was honored to play with the Making the Grade collection and so I wanted something fun for our house.  I snapped these photos of Jack on his first day of school.  I ten took each little trey and made some cute inserts.  For several of the boxes I cut the paper using my Silhouette into some fun cards like the school house and some journaling cards.  I then decorated the boxes with the coordinating stickers, bottle caps and tags!  I just love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with another project from We R Memory Keepers.  See you then!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!
