it is friday!

Woohoo...it's Friday! What a wonderful feeling that is, huh? Today, as promised, is the gift I made for Todd's mom for her birthday. Yes, it is a stationary box. This one, however, is made with the Bella Rose designer paper that I love.

Today I have the pictures of the outside and inside of the box. Tomorrow...the cards and tags. This box was SO much easier making the second time around. Maybe it is because I had one to look at...yeah...I think that is it! I just know that she will love it!

What do you think? Do you like the Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, and Pink Pirouette? I think it is very soft and inviting. I do have to say that I love the beautiful "red" satin ribbon. It is not SU! I got it from Texas Jody Lynn and ribbon share she had some time ago. Lovely isn't it?

Yesterday was an interesting first day of school. I got a call from Kyler at about 1:30 p.m. saying he had a tummy ache and side ache. Well...I got him a doctor appointment and picked him up, afraid of appendicitis. Alas, it wasn't that and he is fine...whew! It could be a couple of things though that I'll need to keep an eye on but for now...business as usual! If you'd like to see 1st day of school pictures you can go HERE.

Oh, and here is a school funny for you...*A little girl had just finished her first week of school. I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!* Now that is something I would have said in school 'cuz if you think I'm a chatterbox now...you should have heard me in elementary school. Poor teachers!

I hope that you have a super Friday and please stop back tomorrow to see the cards and tags that went inside the box! Oh, and again, you know I have to do it...

Friday

This is a beautiful gift! It's so nice that you know people who appreciate nice things like this. I don't really know anyone in my (or DH's) family who would. Isn't that sad? The ribbon is awesome, btw!

Glad to hear Kyler is ok.

I am hoping to get your final package in the mail tomorrow, or Monday at the latest! Woot!
