Schools Days

I know that most of you have been waiting breathlessly for picts of my first day of school. Sorry that it took me until after the second day of school....but last night I caught up on some much needed sleep.

Well here Luke and Sam are in the dark...because we leave before the crack of dawn. I'm feeling a little silly and decide to join in the pict. Ever so attractive isn't it. You can't see that I have new hair....but you can see that I have a snazzy new OUTRAGEOUS jacket.

Well...walking up to room 29 you can see that you are welcomed.
You can see my atractive name plate that I made as well as my cool little clip.
This must be Mrs. Campbell's classroom. Are you noticing a little Maya Road here? It won't be the last. Also thanks to my friend Hiedi for the use of the Cricket! The letters were perfect!
This is the first view of my new second grade classroom. My husband said he thought I just looked at the classroom as a giant scrapbooking oportunity. He could be right.
There are little vignettes all around the room. Here is one with the stars above a bookcase.
Here is another about the file cabinets. There is a little cuttlebug action going on with the stars.
Oh! More Maya Road. The stars and pennants created a precious little valance about the two windows.More vignettes these are above the cabinets around the teacher station.

At my teacher station, I have this totally rockin' magnetic board.
Sam created this little vignette on a self at my teacher station. Is that some more Maya Road? LOL.
Here are my passes right next to the door. Hmmm....more Maya Road
Here are my boys for the traditional pict outside my classroom.
Here is Sam with his teacher Mrs. Quint outdside the school. She is a cute young thing.

Most of my supplies were from The Crafty Scrapper as you can see....so Clay totally could be right about the scrapbooking thing.

I so could not have gotten this classroom together without the help of my friends and family. I won't embarrass you by listing your names here...but you know who you are. My year is going to be totally awesome because of your great help! I love you guys!

My Baby Takes the Next Step

A new life on his own. I am so excited for him! (I say through teary eyes.) I took him to the dorm and helped him arrange it. This is probably the best it will ever look. I guess I was spoiled. I went to a private college and had a huge room that was gorgeous. Cody...doesn't get that...but he is boys so he probably doesn't care.
Notice he does have Wacko, some assorted stuffed animals from girls and the original Barney are there with him to keep him company.

Any Way....I've put him into God's hands and I hope that Cody and Jesus have a good time together in college.

Have You Ever?

The week before last I was scrapping. I was so excited. I had the most gorgeous sketch! It was one of the bests I have ever made. I wanted to scrap some of Sam's kindergarten pictures. My problem was...I was determined to use the stash that I had actually bought to go with the pictures I had taken three years ago. Well...I can't even post the pictures because I so don't like them. This is probably the first time I am posting something with no pict..... Hmmm.. I will remedy.

One of my LOs is on the front page of Scrap Shanty forum's web site. Some days you have good scrapping days. Others.....

Getting Ready for School

Starting a New Grade level means new centers, new decorating. I came up with these two center tags

I do have a red, white and blue theme going on in the room....but I don't for the life of me know why I got hooked on using these little guys...so now I guess I have to come up with more funny animal pictures for my other tags.

I don't know how I come up with this stuff! LOL!

LP Album

I had a little fun making some albums out of LPs the other day at The Crafty Scrapper. As a matter of fact....I will be teaching a class on how to do it at the store. Check out the link.
The class will be Nov. 1st at 10:30. There are some really cool techniques in the book. It is going to be a present for a special gal who will be having a very special b'day soon!
