Pretty In Pink Polka Dots

I think this is one of my favorites!!!

I used Pink Paislee - Lunch Hour, radiant rain, heidi swapp mask, queen & co felt, bazzill, threading water punch, primas, noteworthy journaling block, cat's eyes, bookworm's mini alphas, sharpie

I have been creating a lot of pages lately for It's Scraptacular. They will be posted at for the month of June.

We are having a blast watching the Phillies together at night. GO PHILLIES!!!

Monday was fun. We chilled out, had a water balloon fight, and watched the Phillies.
Katie had a busy week at school. It was her class picnic on Tuesday and a field trip on Wednesday.

Katie and some neighbor kids took a wet walk on Tuesday. They were just too cute! Katie was
"Singing in the Rain".

Sean was sitting on the porch practicing his guitar.

I got some good pictures of the flowers in the garden before the rain
and during the rain.

Start of Something New

Well, I finally caved in and started a blog. With so much going on, I hope this will help keep everyone up to date with all of us.

Life is a bit crazy around here right now. Sean is graduating in 13 school days. It is bitter sweet. I still can't believe I have a kid who is 18 and graduating!!! When did I get so old???

Sean's prom is this Sunday. I can't wait to see him all dressed up! He finally shaved his "playoff" beard since the Flyers lost yesterday. I am sure his date will be happy!

It was a tough day yesterday because the Flyers lost and their season has ended. It was one heck of a season though. Look out for us next year!!!!

Katie has no sports going on right now... believe it or not!!! She has been having fun playing with the neighborhood kids everyday. She only has 15 more school days until she becomes a 4th grader! She will be going to camp again this summer. She can't wait! She loves hiking up to the top of the mountain everyday. She is my little athlete!! She is in the running club at school. She runs 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 miles every Tuesday and Thursday. She has run almost 45 miles so far this school year. She LOVES to run. Hopefully she will keep that passion.

Sean and Katie both had their spring concerts last week. It was Sean's last concert and Katie's first concert. Again, very bitter sweet for me. Sean had a solo during the song " River in Judea". We were so proud. He did such a great job! Katie did a super job singing and playing the recorder.

The kids also had their art show last week. They both had pieces displayed.

We also took a walk around the school. I got a cool picture of Sean walking by himself down the hallway. I also got a picture of him at his locker.

I was just named to the It's Scraptacular Design Team. I am so excited!!! This is my first design team. The store is located in Douglassville. You will start seeing my layouts in June. I have been busy creating pages.

Ray is very busy with work. His work through date is August 29th. Then hopefully on to bigger and better things.

Well, thanks for reading about us.
