The End of Summer...

Today is the last 'unofficial' day of summer!  Tomorrow the kids go back to school and we will be having to watch out for the those yellow school buses and slowing down around school zones.  Wishing all the kids a great first day back to school -- and a great school year!

Did you look forwad to going back to school?   I know I didn't!  I never liked school and always dreaded going back.   Not sure I'd enjoy it any more as an adult either! 

The start of a new school year also means the start of cooler days and nights.   I like the cooler nights!  We live in a 90 year old house and don't have central air, so the cooler nights make for a much better sleep! 

To end our summer, my husband and his best friend did 15 laps around MoSport racetrack in a NASCAR car -- again!!   They had a blast!   The wives each did a 5-lap trip around as a 'ride-along' -- we were the passengers in a NASCAR vehicle with a professional driver behind the wheel.  What an experience that was!  LOTS of fun.  I'm not going to talk about trying to get in and out of the car...   If you have a NASCAR fan in your house, I would highly recommend trying it out.   Just check out Rusty Wallace Racing Experience to see where they will be.

Now we head back to our regular scheduled programming.... :-)

What's New!

We've had lots of new stuff come in over the last month and even more to come!  

Who doesn't like Jillibean Soup?   We have 2 new lines -- Winter Tortellini / Spinach Soup and Grandma's Lima Bean Soup.  We also have all the new Soup Labels, Banner Bites and Hexagon (or Hexies) stickers available.

 BoBunny Double Dot Designs 6x6 Paper Pads are perfect for card making, photo mats,mini albums -- for just about everything!

Just in time for Fall, we have Simple Stories Harvest Lane.

Get a head start on your Christmas cards or gifts with Simple Stories Handmade Holiday.

Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor is a great Halloween line of papers!

  If you like 'bling', we have new Prima Say it in Crystals in stock in a variety of colours and styles.  These are great for adding that little bit of glimmer to your layouts, cards or altered items. 

Washi Tape is all the rage right now.  We have 2 styles available from Prima -- Tea Thyme and Welcome to Paris.

If you are new to Washi Tape or don't have a clue what to do with it, check out this great tutorial from Scrapbook & Cards Today's blog. 

And finally, we have new Memory Box dies available.  You can check them out HERE.
