The April showers are really making their presence known here. I am pretty sure that 80% of the day today it rained, and I am loving it! It feels so...fresh. I will say though its rather crazy weather wise here lately- but that is southeastern Ohio for ya. Sunday it hit 85 degrees here, and had us thinking that the AC going into the window wasn't such a crazy idea. We did however hold off and just enjoyed the warm summery feeling by taking the kiddos to the park.
It was a rather eventful weekend. Besides going to the park, we enjoyed a nice family movie night Friday evening. The kids picked Tangled, which I have to admit was soo stinking cute. Then it was a late night girls night with Iggy Saturday. I swear that child can go days without sleep if she wanted to. I think it was 3 or 4 in the morning when she finally passed out- although the conversation was well worth the lack of sleep :)
Sunday however was a milestone day. Not only did we get our first taste of summer, but miss Roxy lost her first baby tooth!! We had spent the night before trying to convince her to just pull it out (as it was hanging by a thread) but she put it off. In any event, when she woke up Sunday morning I went in to greet her and show daddy how loose her tooth really was. She opened to say AHHH...and Joe goes "wow, thats really loose!" Not but a second later, I asked her to show me again and it was just gone- Poof- vanished! We searched all over her bed, clothes, floor - and the only conclusion was that she must have swallowed it LOL. In any regard the "tooth fairy" got to make its first visit. Gosh they are growing up way to fast on me!!
As for scrap/design- I fell a little behind. Up so High didn't fully get previewed as I had hoped for- so it will have a new release date of the 16th :) But I will most definitely be showing the preview soon, with a chance to win before its released. I managed some template sets, quick pages and a few wordart sets as well that will be releasing on the same day.
But since I have to push the schedule back a little bit, I wanted to give you all a little gift. I was just inspired by the color pallette in midst of creating my kit for Saturday- and the sidetrack turned into a nice mini.
Since everyone had said spring brings about fresh start feelings- here is my fresh start spring inspired design. *Also included in the download is a template perfect for your 365 Projects.
