report card and a secret.



I made this card with the amazing new Report Card collection from October Afternoon. I absolutely LOVE these papers! They are sort of vintage with great old-fabric designs and wonderful schoolbook text backgrounds...it has to be my favorite so far! So I made this card and I am looking forward to making some actual layouts with it very soon. Oh, and head on over to the October Afternoon blog to leave a comment and possibly win some OA clear stamps!

I'm kind of in a funk this afternoon and all my blogging vibes have flown out the window. Well, not really...it's way too hot to have any windows open around here! I just literally cannot remember anything I had planned to blog about today.

Oh, here's something. I have a fun project that I'm working on. I don't think I'm supposed to share the details just yet, but I'll give you some clues:
1. It's scrappy.
2. It's faith-focused.
3. It's going to begin sometime in September.
4. It involves some way-cool Jesus-loving girls.
5. You can be a part of it, too!
6. I'll post more as soon as I can!

Hey, that worked wonders! Just sharing the barest of details about my secret has lifted my funk a little...

In the getting-ready-for-school-to-start category, I am expecting the man in brown to bring me some Latin books and flashcards and Becky Fleck's Pagemaps book. I had been wanting Pagemaps, so I had to sneak it into my Latin book order...it's funny, I used to really struggle with sketches, now I love them!

Have a lovely day!

Love the card! I actually saw it on the OA blog a couple days ago and fell in love. Your new project sounds intriguing. Can't wait to hear more.

This is a fabulous card, Stacey! Now I'm kicking myself for not ordering that line when I placed an order for some new toys yesterday!
