I TELL YA Tuesday...

Hello lovies...how I've missed catching up on your blogs and pages and I will DEFINITELY be slowing down a bit mid week to catch up w/ y'all...things have been NUTS here this weekend and yesterday w/ it being our first day back to school...I TELL YA!

Funny story-my son actually tried to hide my alarm clock the night before last so that we wouldn't HAVE to get up and go to school today-I thought that was quite resourceful of him but yeah...didn't work, LOL.   My baby girl had separation issues at Pre-K yesterday which pretty much broke my heart.  She didn't even cry on her 1st day, but for some reason, after all that togetherness over the past two weeks and all the family time we shared, I think she was feeling the loss that we all were this morning when the clock struck 6am :) Oh well-that can only tell me that we had a GREAT time during Fall Break, right?

In fact, you guys might not know this but I basically pre-posted everything I've created in the past two weeks or so.  My stamps haven't seen daylight in TWO weeks!   So, I was pretty excited to crack them back out of the darkness of my desk and get to crackin' on Mercy's Tuesday sketch this week:

LOVE this one.   I knew exactly which stamp from UNITY Stamp Co. that I wanted to use, too!  It's actually a store kit stamp (sold by many of Unity's AWESOME retailers including my friend Claudia at DieCutsRUs).  If you haven't visited Unity's website lately, GO!  Check out the NEW and AWESOME site that Angela had put together-it's amazing and SO user-friendly!  I love it!

This stamp was the perfect size for the main image panel and paired with some awesome "County Fair" DP from Fancy Pants, I really like the soft look of this and also the AWESOME quote-which really speaks to me today, actually ;)

"May you have the HINDSIGHT to know where you've been, the FORESIGHT to know whe're you're going, and the INSIGHT to know when you've gone too far..."   LOVE that!

Be sure to check out the rest of Mercy's Muses and see what they've been up to for this week's awesome challenge, including the wonderful Heather Pulverenti, our October Guest Muse!



I'll see you back here in a while...LOVE that you guys keep on coming by and supporting me and definitely need it this week more than ever as I feel like I almost have to "reacquaint" myself w/ my supplies, LOL!   Thanks for being there- Mahalo! :)
