My cup runneth over...*SFYTT*

So...yeah...I am just a *tad* late with last week's SFYTT! I really didn't mean to be, I promise. The baby shower is done and turned out great! I will fill you in on all of the details and photos later. It is such a huge sigh of relief to have it done. I really did have fun getting it all put together, even though I did feel a ton of stress, too. Of course I can't sit still for long and now I am planning a Halloween party for my 10 year old who says that he is too old to go Trick-or-Treating. I don't think that you are ever too old, but that is just me. I will share all of that fun stuff later, too.

I needed a thank you card for one of my friends who hooked me up with some fabulous chairs for the baby shower. It turned out perfectly and I got them for FREE!!!! Well, I should say "borrowed" them for free! I had to have them back Monday morning, but they looked really nice. I decided to use the companion set to Tea for Two; Tea For Two Additions. I can't believe it took me so long to get it! You all know how much I love Tea for Two, so of course it was a *must have*. I really liked the sentiment that goes along with it to and was a perfect fit for my card.

The paper is from Graphic 45 and always proves to be a favorite with me. I have used different pieces on quite a few projects and I always like how they turn out. I had been using it for another project which I will share later, and so I decided to use it here. I might have pushed the envelope, even for me, as far as mixing patterns. I had fun, though and I guess that is all that matters, really.
I did have something quite traumatic happen on the last day of my kid's swimming lessons. It really effected me and even though it has been a week ago today, it is still really bothering me. I don't know if I should go into it here, but maybe I will share it soon. It might not seem like a big deal and I don't know if I am making it a bigger deal than it needs to be, but it happened all the same and I don't think that I will ever forget it. I don't have time to post about it tonight; baby boy needs his jammies and crib and I am already pushing bed time too late!
Even though it is late, you won't want to miss the other gals and their amazing designs.

What great papers; love the look; such a cute vintage-y card!

Oh...the horror swim lessons can be; we've had two horrid things happen and I am STILL bothered by them more than 9 years later! :(

BUT I think we handled it well for the kids and they remember the situations, but not much beyond that - which is good. Thinking about you!

Hugs, ~M.
