About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Dude, You Rock!

I needed a birthday card for my brother-in-law and this is what I came up with. I saw a similar card in the PaperCrafts Card Style magazine. Which by the way is an amazing resource. Anyway, I find masculine cards to be a bit challenging so I was happy to find a sample I could CASE. So I have decided that my kids watch way too much tv, so I have limited their time. Yesterday was the first day and I have to say it wasn't too bad, the problem is when they watch tv I get to be in my stamp room. I find when they are just playing I need to be in closer proximity so they don't hurt each other. It is the right thing to do but I will miss my "me" time. School starts soon and that will help. Have any of you had this issue arise, I would love to hear what you did with your kids? Enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by.
