Welcome Spring

Hello again!
This has been a busy weekend with Kelsey's 13th birthday. She seems to think your birthday should last for the entire week rather than one day. We went to Disney World ~ Magic Kingdom Saturday, had Chili's for dinner afterwards where the staff sang Happy Birthday, bought her Sperry's today while running errands, and ate cookie cake for dessert.

This evening we went to my sister's and she looks good. She has "a boot" on one foot and the metal pins are sticking right out. She has a different cast on the left foot where the permanent  metal screws and plate are. I told her the next time I go over I am going to bring a book we can use for scrap booking. She said she would actually give it a try.

Here is another card I made this evening. I have wanted to cut an umbrella, so I gave it a try. I used the sketch from Easy Craft Projects.
 I cut this flower (below) to possibly use on the front oval, but decided against it. I saved it rather than throwing it away and used it for the envelope instead.
I used K&Company paper ~ Brenda Walton Small Wonder
April Showers Cricut cartridge ~ umbrella and sentiment
pink and green floral gems


FCAT starts for grades 3 - 10 tomorrow. McDonald's is giving free breakfast to students between 6 - 8:30am. My daughter is looking forward to getting a free meal. She sure likes those Apple Dippers! I think I am going to get a parfait...yummy!

Until next time,
