happy Monday, everyone!

How are y'all doing today?

Are you ready for a new week?

I am excited this morning because I am taking my two oldest girls (and the baby) to do some school shopping! I've been checking some things out online and have a couple of coupons printed out and can't wait to help the girls find some cute new things for school. Hailey will start second grade and Sarah will be in kindergarten. They are growing up way too fast. We won't buy TOO much because they have plenty of clothes already but it's always fun to find a few new things for the first days of school.

(here's a new pic of the girls- we took some family pics while in Houston a few weeks ago; I'm sure Ginger got some better pics- here Sarah is the only one looking at me while the other girls are looking at Ginger!)

Aimee is going shopping with my husband for some things to take to the local food bank tonight. Our church has partnered with the South Plains Food bank for a food drive this summer, the second year running now, and it's neat to buy some things and show the girls that WE can do something to help those who are in need and to think about someone else instead of just "me, me, me" all of the time. Everyone from the church in our area has been invited to go tonight for one final drop-off .

I can't believe that school starts in a couple of weeks! I am excited (I think the girls are ready to get back into a routine) but sad at the same time because it's been fun to have the girls around so much. I know that they miss each other when they're off doing the school thing.

Today I have some more projects to share with you, things I created for the online store, A Walk Down Memory Lane. Last week I shared some Little Yellow Bicycle/Unity Stamp projects:

and today I have some projects featuring the Bella Blvd. "Tail Waggers and Cat Naps" collection. 

I don't often use themed collections but thought it would be fun to show how you can use themey collections for other things, like this card: 

You can see two more projects that I created with this collection here:

Have a great day!

p.s. I'll post the My Little Shoebox giveaway winner later today!
