WoW!!!

I can't believe it is the last full week of February!!  Time is flying by so quickly!!  I feel like I just can't keep up!!  Thank Goodness, though,  I have a fairly mild week ahead!!  I don't work any evenings and I feel sooooo relieved!!!  I can't tell you how much anxiety I have been feeling when I work in the evening.  I am hoping to cut back for the next few months and pick up some more hours once we are in our last days of school.  I look so forward to spending a little more time at home!!
Home is heaven to me!!

 I do have some projects to finish this week, including a Tarzan costume for Ben.  He is going to be competing in our High School Mr. Panther contest which is a "Beauty" pageant for the guys.  The theme is Welcome to the Jungle with an 80's flair.  He wants the costume for the opening dance.  It should be fun!!  We have been trying to come up with swim wear, evening wear, talent,  and something for the interview portion of the contest.  I think we have a handle on things, but boy there is a lot to put together.  I am looking forward to the competition!  It should be a riot!!

Happy Birthday Dad!!!
I do have to take a minute to wish my Dad a very Happy Birthday!!   I am hoping you had a great day Dad!!  We are missing you!!!
Scrapping the Music #74 

This week's song is Stand by Your Man, by the Blues Brothers.  I totally enjoyed creating this layout celebrating my love for my husband.  The lyrics state Tell the World you Love him- so here you go world....I love him!!  
I had some fun with my Studio Calico kit along with some Shimmering Mist.  I am just loving the spray mist.  I can't believe it intimidated me for so long!!  I also play with some of Claudine Hellmuth's Guesso.  Love, love, love Claudine's line of paints!!I hope you get to play along with us this week at Scrapping the Music!!  I look forward to seeing what you will create!!

Tomorrow I will share some pictures I took while my sweetie and I were on our walk today at the Missouri Headwaters State Park.  We had a great time!!

I hope you all have a great day!
May you feel the presence of the Lord surrounding you today,
Kristii

Glad to hear you are going to have a "lighter" week. I soooo agree that home is heaven. Happy Birthday to your dad! And the layout is beautiful. I thought I recognized Studio Calico. So the glimmer mist intimidated you? Still does me but maybe I can give it a try after seeing what cool things you have done with it. Best of luck to your son in his "beauty pageant". I love stuff like that! I guess that is why I worked with the youth group at my church for so long. Sorry for the scattered thoughts. Guess I had alot to say...lol! Happy Monday!

Love the layout, I am totally intimidated by the mist. It's just sitting here, mocking me. Glad you get to spend some time at home, I agree, it is heaven.
