It's Monday again! 

The kids have been out of school for two weeks for their Christmas holiday and during that time off I thought all along that they were supposed to go back to school today. I was wrong. They go back tomorrow. 

Don't get me wrong...I love my girls and love having them at home with me. During the school year things are so busy that we don't get a lot of time to spend together so having them home is so nice. But, I can tell that they are ready to go back. They are grumpy with each other and with me and I think they are craving their routine, whether they realize it or not. 

And so am I. 

So for today we will play and do something fun, they'll head back to gymnastics and dance tonight and tomorrow we will get back to  our regular schedule. 

With CHA trade show work done and a no assignments due this week I had some time to just play with some of the papers in my stash again. I've been going through the Cut & Paste collection from My Mind's Eye this past weekend (thanks to the Scrap Review gig I used to have I received the entire Cut & Paste collection in all four color schemes) and have this and a couple of other layouts to share with you this week. 

Here is little Lily at the park on the day that I taught her about making wishes and blowing off the fluff from dandelions. She was so cute, having so much fun running around the park to find more "wishes." 

These little hearts were originally part of an embellishment but I decided to cut that apart and use the hearts all over the page. The gray twine here is from Doodlebug. All other product besides what I specify to be different is from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste collection. 

The yellow alphas are some of my favorite Thickers from American Crafts and the little "xoxo" is from Studio Calico. All tapes and stickers are from My Mind's Eye. 

What are you doing with your Monday? Are your kids back to school already? 

Have a fantastic day!
