Last week of Kindergarten and some fun pics

Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday that Matthew started Kindergarten. Can't believe how fast the year has gone. In two days, Kindergarten will be over, and in one month my baby will be starting 1st grade. Not sure, that I am ready for that yet, but he thinks he is!
Today was Water Day at Matthew's school. I stayed to help out and used the opportunity to take lots of pics.

Big sister Kalee stopped by with her friends on her lunch break to see her brother, and to get her yearbook signed.
Awww, to be a kid again!

Cosmo Cricket Fever

Cosmo Cricket is having a Design Team call and I caught the Cosmo Cricket Fever!!
I have decided to try out for the call because it would be such an amazing opportunity to work for this company! I really love the bold colors, distressed textures and unique style. If you have never played with Cosmo Cricket, don't walk, run to your local scrapbook store or better yet their website and check it out!

From the Hello Sunshine collection

From the Halfway Cafe collection, I created an altered frame using Cosmo Cricket's alpha button fashions, chipboard letters, trim, paper and lacing cards. I used bubble wrap and paint to create the splattered background.

Lots of catching up to do...

Been away for awhile but now I'm back. Earlier in the month I had an upper endoscopy performed for some GI issues I have been having. Then, my son came down with this nasty virus called HSP, that had him really sick for 1 week. Thankfully, that has passed and I'm finally starting to feel like I can get my groove back again. Even though I haven't blogged in awhile, I have been designing so I have lots to share. First, some digital stuff - Digi Designer JanaM named a kit after each of her creative team members, and I happened to be one of them! Check out my kit.
Isn't is awesome? It is available for purchase at The Digi Chick.

Here are two digital layouts that I made with the kit.

and a layout made with CT kit Anja

and CT Marieke

I really love the paper cutouts on this, I will use them over and over again.

Be back tomorrow with some Hybrid projects.
