I've been out of commission lately. Early last week and the end of the week prior, I was battling strep throat. It knocked me out for about 5 days, and I'm so glad it's over with. I was afraid I would spend this past weekend feeling bad, and I didn't want to be sick on Lovely's first days off in, well, forever. Luckily, I was in the clear in time for the weekend, because we packed it full of fun. Thursday night my nephews spent the night, and we enjoyed some time at the park Friday morning. We're lucky to have such a beautiful and HUGE dog-friendly park nearby where there are endless trails, riverfronts to feed the ducks and fish, playgrounds, and a splash park. The boys had a blast, and we enjoyed watching them play. That evening Lovely & I headed to a Texas Rangers baseball game, and had the best time. Saturday we spent the day together, doing our normal weekend stuff, out to eat, grocery shopping, relaxing around the house, and even threw in a movie. That day was special, because it was just us all day! It was the first day we spent together, just ourselves, in a very long time! Yesterday, we hung out in the pool with family, and I even had a little time to create. I've finally got things caught up around the house after being sick, so I have lots of projects to share with you this week.
I wanted to share the June My Paper Pumpkin Kit with you, as I think it is the best one yet! I created all sorts of stuff with the kit, and even have lots left over to whip up some more goodies! With this kit alone, I was able to make a bouquet of pinwheels, 5 treat bags, and a banner, and like I said, still have TONS left over to make more! I thought I'd share the projects with you so you can see what My Paper Pumpkin is all about.
Only used a couple of extra things, Whisper White Cardstock and the What's Your Type Photopolymer Stamp Set, that weren't included in the kit to create the "free" on my banner. I could have easily done without that, but I love mixing the things I already have to step up the kits.
