Graduation Day!

Today is a very special day for me, my youngest daughter, Courtney, has graduated from Trinity Christian Preschool. They had a very cute program where the children sang songs that they had learned throughout this past school year. I am so proud of her accomplishments this year: learning to write her ABC's and 123's, writing her name and some other small words. Kindergarten here she comes!

Spring is Here!

Spring is finally here! The weather is absolutely beautiful, I would love for it to stay just like this. Last night I hosted a card workshop and everyone had a great time. We learned 2 new techniques, made 3 cards and a gift box.

Here is a picture of the gift box. This box holds 3-4 Ghiradelli Chocolates and is a great thank you gift, favor, etc... I gave this to my daughter's bus drivers as a Thank You for being so nice to her this past school year.

Next months card workshop is on June 17 at 7pm. If you would like to come to this workshop please let me know or 815-254-5419. I hope you can make it.

This is a great way to get out with your friends and do something we all love!

Happy Monday!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends and a little bit of sunshine! Today is absolutely beautiful out, I just love this weather! I wanted to share with all of you some scrapbook layouts that I put together for my last scrapbook workshop. We used the Bella papers and the Endless Friendship stamp set. I just love these colors and how well they work together! Enjoy!
