Beauty Queen of '09

Isn't she a riot! This is another Rubbernecker image. The inside of the card says, If You've Got It, Flaunt It! How true. The paper is SU, the ribbon is from Michaels. I colored her in with my Prisma pencils. When I saw her I just had to have her. So we're down to the end of '09. I sure hope 2010 brings good things for everyone. I think we are planning on staying home for New Year's Eve. I think I would rather be at home then out somewhere and have to drive home with all the crazies on the road (plus, sometime I can't stay awake late, lame, I know!). So, have a great New Year's Eve and enjoy the night. Thanks for stopping by.

I Don't Do Mornings!!

I just love this image from Rubbernecker stamps. She's such a happy person!! If you haven't checked out their stamps you'll need to. I colored her in with my Prisma watercolors. The paper is SU and the floral paper is from my scrap drawer. the sentiment inside says, I don't do mornings, heck I don't do afternoons, either!
By the way, I did try pumpkin pie. You should have seen it. My aide set up two chairs in front of the class, one for me and one for the kindergarten teacher (who also hasn't tried it). We each had a forkful and chased it down with pop. The kids were histerical watching us. It wasn't a pretty sight and by the way, neither one of us liked it. I let one of the little girls come up and try it and when we gave her a forkful she held her nose. It was so funny to see a 6 year old holding her nose and trying to eat pumpkin pie. What a sight! Needless to say we have a ton of fun and laughs in our classroom (and yes, we do get work done)!
So, I hope everyone has a great holiday and as always, thanks for stopping by!!

Woo, hoo!!

Believe it or not, we have one more day left of school before 2 weeks off. Woo, Hoo!!! I know, most of you are probably off by now and I am jealous. Don't ask me why we are still in, I don't know. However we dont go back until Wednesday the 6th. That's the good part. Anyway, here is another Christmas card very much like the last one. I really liked the paper and the stamp so I thought I might as well make all my cards with this paper. I really hoping to get alot of stamping done over break. I have quite a few orders to fill.
Okay, want to hear a good one?! The kids in my first grade class all agreed to try to eat something new at Thanksgiving dinner. I also agreed to try pumpkin pie, I have never even tried it because I think it looks just gross (I'm sure it's not). Well, the day came and went and I just couldn't come to taste it. Being the honest teacher I am, I admitted to my class that I didn't try it. So today one of the kids asked when I will try it and my most WONDERFUL aide and very dear friend offered to bring some pumpkin pie to school tomorrow for me to try in front of the class. I think I feel the flu coming on. What do you think?! So I'll let you know whether I tasted it, liked it or was grossed out by it. It should be an interesting day in first grade tomorrow.
So, that's it for the week. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy!!

Happy Birthday!!

Here's a cute little card for any little guy who loves baseball. I'm sure everyone knows someone like that. It was very simple to make. The image is from TAC. So, tomorrow is Polar Express day at school. We have several great activities planned for the kids. They are all (and so are the teachers)wearing the p.j's to school. That should be interesting. I'll have to post some pictures afterwards. Anyway, have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Holidays!!

I know, I know! You've seen this layout already. This is the same layout as the last Christmas card I posted but I really like the layout, it was an easy one to do and it's going to be my Christmas card this year. So all I did was change the paper and it gave it a whole new look. I say it's going to be my card for the season, that is if I get on the ball and make a bunch of them. My scrap room is in my basement and these days it is freezing outside therefore, the basement is also freezing. I need one of those snuggies to stay warm down here. That's another excuse to go to Target, don't you think. Anyway, thanks for checking in and have a great weekend, I know I will.

Here comes the Snow!

I thought this card would be appropriate for todays post. We are at the beginning of the first major snowstorm of the season. Although it is always beautiful to look at it really stinks to drive in. Anyway, have a snowfilled day, I'm off to school.

Ho, Ho, Ho!!

I cased this layout from a card at Archivers. I've been known to take pictures of layouts at Archivers and Casey is totally mortified when I do that and she is with me. I just love embarrasing her. Tee, Hee!! We just came back from the Ronald McDonald house, here in the neighborhood. It was built last year and is just opened one year ago. It's such an awesome place, beautiful, warm and inviting for those families who stay there because they have a child at the hospital. I would love to work there. Casey's history class wanted to do something for them so 8 girls, their teacher and myself went and baked all kinds of goodies. The whole house smelled delicious. Every night they have someone who volunteered, to come in and cook dinner. They are booked with dinners until June. Isn't that awesome. We plan on going back again to bake in the spring. The girls had a great time and the people there so appreciated it. That's my plug for the Ronald McDonald house. So the next time you see a donation box for the house please don't hesitate to drop some change in. Every little bit helps. Anyway, have a great rest of the week and thanks for stopping by.
