First, Tanner had a fabulous day at school on Tuesday. This is what he said to me that morning..."Mom, I am so excited! I bet you can't make me NOT smile!"....LOL! I had to laugh.

Here he is walking into school with his new Mario Galaxy backpack. I was so happy to be one of the parents whose child was not crying. Why? Because my third grader cries the first day of school still. Yes. I am hoping that doesn't rub off on Tanner....we will see.

I took the day off from creating to work on PTA "stuff". We kicked off our first fundraiser and I am writing letters to ask for donations for our Open House dinner in September. It is going to be a busy PTA year again, but there is a silver lining.................this is my last year as president....YAY!

Since school started and I have a very full schedule with all the meetings, etc. I started Fly Lady again. If you are familiar with Fly Lady, you know you receive a lot of emails. I didn't sign up for that part. I go in every day to get my task in the Baby Steps area right now. I don't want to start cleaning too fast...LOL! If you are not familiar with Fly Lady, here is the link. If you don't want a million (okay it just feels like a million) emails, don't sign up for that part. Just bookmark her and start flying!

Since Fly Lady, I am cleaning off my craft desk (still) and have another DZ Doodles image to share with you. This time I took apron 1 from the Kitchen section at DZ Doodles and colored it with my copics. For some reason when I think of kitchens I think of a cheery yellow. Now, my kitchen is blue, but I felt like yellow. Once I finished coloring, I thought of the Let's Get Together level 2 paper pack from CTMH. It is retiring this year, so if you want it you better order it soon.

I had to change one thing about the pattern paper. This paper has buttercup, which is a light yellow and I needed a brighter yellow. I took my regular paper punch and punched out sunkiss yellow circles (that matched my apron) and adhered them over the buttercup circles on the paper and ribbon. This solved my problem and gave the paper a little umph. I like how that turned out. Since I had Fabulous on the brain, I used the retired SU set, Many Happy Returns for the sentiment. Added bling flowers and buttons...viola!...card is finished!

Happy Stamping!

Love your apron card, Kim! I've heard of Fly Lady but I only knew about BOOKS, not a website. I'm afraid to try it!!! (LOL)

I'm so proud of Tanner! Your quote from him is just wonderful! I'm so glad you are preserving these memories.

Fabulous on all counts. Fabulous that Tanner is so confident heading into school, Fabulous that you are trying to "fly" with Flylady, and fabulous card.

I get Flylady as a digest version, so I only get one or possibly two emails a day. I read them first thing in the morning...now I just have to DO what is suggested. LOL Babysteps, right?

Good luck with all your commitments this year!
