Swing!


I took a half day off of work this past Friday. Three-quarters of our staff was at the national conference for our industry, and I was completely fried from the fall schedule that we have for the first three issues of the school year.

So, I took a half-day vacation and came home to create. I flipped through the blogs I had unfortunately been unable to visit lately, and I came across Leeanne's birthday celebration at Artful Delight. Stop on by, be inspired and play along!

This page was made using the sketch challenge that was posted on Friday.


I made this page with my stash and mostly Simple Stories papers. And don't you just love those alphas from Pink Paislee—such an amazing font style, don't you think? And great texture with the wood grain.


This page is about how Nate had a baseball clinic during the summer—every Saturday morning for 6 weeks. And this was after he played tee-ball in May and June for 8 weeks. The kid had a baseball summer, that's for sure. He loved every bit of it, and he did learn a lot about technique and being a good team member.

Well, hope I pointed you in the direction of a new place to play, or maybe you are already playing along at Artful Delight. Thanks for stopping by to see my page!
