Happy Saturday ... and happy 1st full day of summer break!
... as you know I always look forward to summer break ... for a while ... but then I crave the schedules and routines! We had a great start to the break yesterday. I picked the girls up, we headed to McDonald's and then to the spray park. It was fun, relaxing and hot! .... of course it only took Alicia 6 hours and 36 minutes to say "I'm boooooored". Oh Dear Lord. I'm thinking this could be a looooooong 8 weeks *lol* Today is a new day, though ... and she had a decent night sleep (for the first time in a long time!) so I'm hoping for a few more smiles and less complaining!
So! When we came back all hot and tired from the spray park we headed to the basement. The girls hit the XBox and I hit the craft room. I wasn't sure WHAT I wanted to make ... it didn't really matter for the first half hour as I needed to find the top of my desk before I could do ANYthing! (I'm certainly not the tidiest stamper!!!). Once I found a little 5x5 area to work on I looked around for a new stamp set and/or toy to play with. My eyes fell on the TWO new punches I bought ... now a NORMAL person would have two new DIFFERENT punches ... not me ... I had TWO of the new Pansy Punch! *sigh* ... apparently I REALLY wanted that punch ... once I realized there WAS a new punch! I didn't notice it the first 17 times I drooled over the new catty ... then I saw a project on Mary Fish's website USING said new punch ... low and behold ... check out page 183 - $21.95 - the new Pansy Punch ... you'd think the white *NEW* label would have given it away for me ... *lol* alas ... in all my *new catty* excitement I inadvertently ordered it twice ... so I figured I better start using it to justify the $43.90 I spent on them!!
Here is what I created:
I plan to craft-for-fun a lot more in the coming days ... after all it IS a long weekend ... AND summer break ... I have nowhere to be and nothing to do :) Enjoy the day ...
