{ Take Joy in the Little Things }


A new creation...finally! Here is my first...well second actually...Magnolia creation. The first one I did, I actually ruined. I might share it at a later date...maybe. ;0)
I love this image. I stole this one off of Shannon at our last Calgal gathering in August. It is a very simple card, but I loved coloring this image. This was my Mom's bday card...hope you like it Mom. :0)
Tomorrow is the big day. El first day of Ballet. She is mighty excited. School seems to be going very well, so I am hopefull that Ballet goes well too. See the parents are not allowed to stay...so wish us luck! She is going by herself...without her sister...so this is a big step for her...and us too! The girls seem to be happy with school, class and teachers thus far...but it is only day 2. Just hope we can get the busing issues all worked out. The first week is always a bit of a gong show. It is just a little frustrating seeing as our school is one of the lastest to start and finish their day. So with busing, the girls are not home until...well yesterday it was 4:45pm and today was 4:35pm. We are hoping for around 4:30 each day. The girls ballet and cheerleading start at 5:15pm so we are gonna be pressed for time! Shove a sandwich down them and off we go! But I am sure that we are not the only ones in this situation. I is just a bit of an adjustment period right now. ;0) Okay...enough of my whining for one day.
Thanks for stoppin' by and I have a few RAKs and Candy winnings to show off in my next post.

Very pretty card, Tracy! I love the dew drops and you did fabulous coloring the image.

Wow, your girls have a lot of things going on. My daughter took ballet for several years when she was younger until she finally told me that she thinks ballet is boring and that she has been trying to perfect the same steps for three years. LOL!
