Monday MME and SOG

Happy Monday,
Did you have a nice weekend?  We sure did here!  My word for the 2013 is BALANCE and I have to say I am doing a much better job at including more balance in.  I actually had time were hubby and I just sat on the  couch together and just relaxed.  I am the type of person that just keeps going and I am trying to learn how to just relax and let a bit go!  So far in 2013 I am doing a great job!

Last school year Jack had an assignment to make a pet rock and this pet rock would be their reading buddy.  There was a contest to make the best one and the winner would get to be on the announcements.  Well, this was a challenge right up my alley!  LOL!!  Jack picked out all the supplies and I  helped hot glue everything on our rock!  Jack won!!  Jack saved his "friend" and he has it in his room.
For my layout I broke out my MME again.  I just totally love this collection.  I am now down to just scraps.  I am so sad :(!  I also used some of my Some Odd Girl sentiment stamps!  For the background I used 2 6x6 papers and on one I cute out on my Silhouette the arrow background.

supplies
paper- die cuts- chipboard- brads- mme
flair- a flair for buttons
wood veneer- studio calico
stamps- some odd girl
ink- jenni bowlin, tim holtz
tools- sewing machine, Silhouette

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

Yay for Jack and this wonderful layout! I still have a rock I painted in first grade. It wasn't a pet rock, and it wasn't a reading buddy, but it was an art project. :)
