It's Spring Break

Yahoo! It's Spring Break here and would you believe it was snowing yesterday? Snowing in Tucson. It doesn't happen very often.

I don't have Blake this week. He's with his step grandmother because she was spring break off, too, as she is a school bus driver.

The house is a bit quiet but I like the break. Don't get me wrong, I miss the little booger, but it is nice to spend some quality time with my kids.

Here are some layouts:

New Note to Self from Echo Park. I also had some Star Wars die-cuts sitting around. This picture has been on my desk for 2 years now. It's about time I got it scrapped. If you look closely, you can see Darth Vader in the very back. He blends right into the black backdrop.

New October Afternoon Sarsaparilla. The background paper is Simple Stories.

Two Peas has so many new products in right now. If you plan on ordering, PLEASE go through the link on the top right of my side bar. I get a little commission if you order through me and I will be forever grateful. :)

Today I received a box from Technique Tuesday. I thought maybe it was new stamps but no, it was some of my old layouts that I made for them. I'm happy to have my layouts back, but I sure am disappointed that they kind of dumped me from the team. I love working with their products and I really miss them. I don't know if I did something wrong because I can't seem to get an explanation.

I am on no design teams right now and it's really a weird feeling. It's the first time I've been "free" for eight years or so.

Last week when I was dropping off the kids at school, one of Trent's classmates (a 5th grade girl) came up to the stroller where little Blake was in there screaming his head off.

With her fingers in her ears, she looked at me and said, "How do you listen to that all day?"

I just smiled and walked away. He doesn't scream all the time. In fact, most of the time he is in a pretty good mood. However, when he gets in one of his screaming moods, watch out. It's ear piercing shrill and it can go on for 20 or more minutes. There's nothing to do to stop it.

We do have the nice quiet moments. Those are nice. This is new
Simple Stories
that I played with over the weekend. 

All of this is older October Afternoon. This is why I don't throw anything away. You just never know when you're going to need to "monster paper". Right?
