It's Friday!!!

How wonderful is that!! I absolutely love Fridays!!

We have early release at school today!! Whoo hoo!! I do have to go to a class for English As a Second Language, but it will be very laid back. I am hoping this class will give me some tools to help a couple of my Learning Lab students.

I only have to work 9:45 -2 tomorrow, so I should be able to get a lot done around the house!! I am so ready to finish my decorating! I still have to get two small trees and I have to pull all of my decorations out of their bins. I still have several projects to finish too, so it will be a busy weekend! Only 2 1/2 weeks until Christmas which means 8 days until Heidi comes home and 19 days until Bethany arrives!! Whoo hoo!!

I just have one project to post today. I have to tell you that the Color Me Daisy December kit is fantastic!! I hope you get a chance to check it out! Here is a layout I made with the December kit's goodness:

The flowers are cut out of Making Memories Glittered Poinsettia from the Fa La La line. I cut the holly leaves out using my Cricut Machine and the Joys of the Season Cartridge. The title and journaling is taken from Where are you Christmas as sung by Faith Hill and Taylor Momsen on The Grinch. The journaling states: The Joy of Christmas stays here with us, fills each and every heart with love. This picture of my 3 cuties was taken way back in 1996.
