~The weekend is almost here!~

Good morning! I am headed off for a fun day with my boys
at school for Valentine's parties!
I sat down and cut 40 cards last night and
found all my punches to take into school for some crafty fun.

How is your Friday looking? Ready for the weekend? I know I am!
I made this Layout last night with Graphic 45 paper.
I broke out the sewing machine and it must be time to change the needle
because it nearly tore the paper clean through.

This is the ONLY picture I have of "great" Grandpa holding
Justice before he passed a few years ago, he was so
happy to meet my son, the picture brings me to tears I think
I could scrap it 100 times over.
I love using the scallop stitch and generally I place a piece of fabric
behind the paper to ensure a more even stitch with the
fancier stitches, but I forgot last night, I thought the paper
was goign to be thick enough with 2 sheets, I was totally wrong.
So a tip for anyone wanting to use fancy stitching, a piece of backing
or scrap fabric goes a long ways when sewing on a layout.

Wish me luck today, I still have a cold but I feel tons better!
Hopefully next week I will be back into full PINK again!

~Thank you for stopping by, I am trying to be better about
responding to comments, many I respond to on Facebook~
~Have a beautiful friday!~
For those of you snowed in, I hope it melts soon :)
