Birthday card & excitement!

Good afternoon everyone!

I feel like I'm on an emotional roller coaster, but more excited than anything. My baby is graduating from Kindergarten in a couple hours. He did so great in school this year. He's a wild one, so I have to admit I was a little concerned when he started school this year, but he really surprised me. The teacher said that he's the best reader in the class. I'm so proud of him and can't wait to see him in his cap & gown:)

Tomorrow, I will be taking my first trip to the west coast for my Aunt's 60th birthday celebration. My hubby & boys will not be going with me, but I will be traveling with other family. I have cousins that I've never met before, so I'm very excited about meeting them. I wasn't really looking forward to the long plane ride. The longest I've been on a plane is less than 3 hours. This will be double and will have a layover:( Well, I received the new Idea Book & Catalog with my pre-order yesterday.When I walked in the door and saw the box on my table, I quickly opened it and pulled out the catalog. My 8-year old son loves to make cards, so I went to tell him the good news. He was sitting on the porch as I walked up to the door singing and dancing and holding it up for him to see. I didn't realize that his little girlfriend was outside with him. You should have seen the look on their faces. I quickly walked away from the door, but I could still see Brandon... shaking his head. LOL! I'm so happy that I will have something to do on the plane to pass the time.

I've been so busy trying to get things done, that I actually forgot to share a card that I made last week. I made this for the son one of my dearest friends. I love the way it turned out.

Supplies Used:

Stamps:    Owl Together Now

Paper:       Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Watercolor Paper, & Good Morning Sunshine DSP

My trip is not a long one, so I hope to be back sometime next week with something to share!
Have a great day!
