Where has the summer gone?

Made with my new Spongebob cartridge and I think(?) the background shape is from Storybook??

Made using Create a Critter (love, love, LOVE this cartridge!!) used Mickey Font for the word and welded on my Gypsy!!

Used Tie the Knot cartridge for both the bride and Groom boxes, I just LOVE how they turned out!! : )

Used a SVG and my SCAL for the gable box, unfortunately when I saved the file I didn't make a note as to who I got it from!! Boo! When I first started "collecting" SVG's I didn't realize the importance of making note of that details!

The programs were made using a file I found on the internet...I was in such a crazed rush I didn't note where I got it from which isn't like me, I know better than that these days!! Wish I could give credit where credit is due! I liked the wording so much I used it verbatim! If you recognize it, let me know and I will happily give credit where credit is due!!

I can hardly believe that I have to go back to school on Wednesday! The summer simply CAN'T be over, I haven't gotten much crafting done outside of wedding stuff and this is usually when I get caught back up before falling behind again due to homework and studying!! It is HARD to craft without any daycare and we are both full time students and on top of that Jay works full time and has National Guard drills, too!! Homework is hard to fit in much less fun! lol Any free time is spent with my baby girl and husband so, does this mean I will be another year behind? lol Oh, no! Well, there is always winter break and next summer and I only have a year and a half left of school and then maybe I can catch back up once and for all! lol Well, anyway...I am going to post pics of things I haven't had a chance to post as I most likely won't find much time come Wednesday! : ) If you check them out let me know what you think! Happy Back To School and/or Fall to all of you!!

Wedding Madness has officially ended!!

I got married on July 10th and have done nothing but craft for the showers, ceremony, and reception since March!! I did my own invites (which was the last time I posted - way back in April....eek!!), programs, favor boxes, floral swags for head table, and flowers for guest tables, card sets in boxes for prizes at the showers and for the hosts at each, and Thank you cards are getting finished up now and will be out by next week! it's time to play catch up!

First, I could KICK myself for not getting in on the Circle Charter membership and going to CHA in Chicago when I had the chance!!! A gift of an Imagine?? Oh, man...did I miss out!! lol Oh, well, I just couldn't fork over that money with my wedding looming!! lol I will save money in the long run since I won't pay for travel and hotel to get there!! lol

Second, I joined weight watchers last April after we got our engagement pics from the photographer both my fiance and I were horrified! Its amazing how a picture can shatter your illusions (or maybe delusions) about your weight so quickly!! Anyway, thanks to the Hungry Girl Cookbooks and Weight Watchers I have lost 30+ lbs and my husband (<--still sounds funny to me to say that lol) has lost 40+ to date!! I can honestly say that we rarely feel like we are dieting! The Hungry Girl Cookbooks are a MUST HAVE!! I can't recommend them enough! I will admit that most aren't suitable for my little one's tastes but, unless I want to try to lose weight eating hot dogs, mac & cheese, raisins, and chocolate milk, nothing would be!!! lol

Anyway...I hope to get some posts on here with the things I did for the wedding and maybe a few wedding pics ~ just because I love them :) lol ~ and hopefully a few fun things I manage to do before I have to go back to school at the end of the month!! Quite a laundry list, I know, we'll see what I get done!! lol

I hope everyone has had a happy and scrappy summer!! I am sad to see it go, but I will welcome some down time : ) !!!
