I hope everyone is having a great start on their weekend! Maddie and I caught a movie yesterday and hit a bunch my favorite stores.  I picked up a cute Little Yellow Bicycle paper pad, an awesome Martha Stewart around the page punch (clearance- $10!), and some other fun stuff!!  I also got happy mail yesterday, YAY!  Got my new Creeper Riley from TGF, some MME paper, and finally ordered one of the TGF sitting stamps!  I have a lot of new stuff to play with this weekend!

My nephew, Alex, will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow!  We are going to see The Avengers! (can't wait!)  Here's the card I made for his birthday-

This is Dylan from The Greeting Farm's Roll Call Kit.

He is so cool in his little basketball uniform!  I know the paper in the background with the numbers on it is from MME, but I am drawing a blank on where I pulled the polka dot paper from...darn.  I used a lot of different Nesties shapes on this to make several layers.  I LOVE the Jillibean banner stickers that come with some sentiments (and some are empty), I think they are a fun way to get your sentiment on your page in a decorative way.  I added some teal/white baker's twine and tied it through a big silver button from MME.

I also have a teacher card that I forgot to post the other day. 

This is one of my all-time favs, Annika.

You know I love me some purple!!!  I used some super fun paper from the Basic Grey Lauderdale pad.  I used a small piece of black card stock, after I used a Nestie on it, and wrote on it with a white pen to make it look like a chalkboard.  The "oh so thankful" sentiment is from TGF.  I tied on some ribbon, added bling, and finally used a school themed brad that I bought a long time ago at Hobby Lobby.  I really like the "chalkboard" behind her, very school-like.

It's going to be a gorgeous day here in Colorado, I hope the rest of you have enjoyable weather too!  I have to crawl out of my "woman cave" once in a while to soak up some sun!
