good morning Cosmo Cricket

Hello and happy Monday, right?

Monday came far too early here this morning since our little puppy, Bella, was howling at a quarter to four this morning which woke up my 4 year old, too. I took her outside (the dog, not the kid) to do her duty and fed her a bit and then put her back in her crate where she sleeps but it took her so long to settle down. By the time she did and I got Sarah and myself back to sleep I heard my 2 year old crying for me. She was up on the stairs looking for me. Poor girl...so I took her back to bed and laid in her room for a bit and then Bella started in again...it was almost 6 and I'd hardly gotten back to sleep. So...I took her outside again to eat and do her duty and to play a little and then put her in her crate and waited for her to settle down and now my almost-6 year old is up. 

It's going to be a fun day around here!!!

Anyway, I have had some fun at least. Thanks to those kind people at Cosmo Cricket who just love SRM Stickers and have a great working relationship with Susan (owner of SRM) each DT member received a couple of the new CHA releases from Cosmo Cricket. I got the Togetherness and Pixie-licious lines and just really, really like them. Togetherness was one of my faves from this CHA so I was ecstatic, of course, and as Susan said, it is "so me." So me, in fact, that I sat down on Friday night and started working on a layout. 

Here is my silly Sarah in her goggles at swim lessons last month. She is an original, no one in the world is quite like her- she marches to the beat of her own drum, and she's the tiny, spunky leader in the front of the line. We sure love that silly girl. She literally climbs the walls at home- I'll have to post a picture of her doing that-and though she is little she sure packs a punch!


and some detail shots:




All of the paper elements came from the papercrafting kit (I'll have to get my hands on the chipboard once it's up for sale!)- I just cut out the little birdies and flowers and tags and clouds- and the buttons and stickers are from Cosmo Cricket as well. Thanks again, Susan and Cosmo Cricket!
