a super student and sunsets

When I dropped off Aislynn at school on Monday, I looked in her cubby and saw this certificate: Super Student of the Week. She was the super student last week and she didn't even tell us! She said she forgot? Well, I wanted to make a big deal out of it so we surprised her with cupcakes after dinner. So proud of her!!! Just can't figure out how she forgot?? Maybe she thinks she is just so fabulous that it wasn't a big deal, ha ha;)
Something we have been doing lately is eating dinner early then walking on the beach. With all the off-on rainstorms we have been getting, the sunsets have been looking really cool! Eastern Lake was pretty shallow, so we splashed and played around in it one night:I guess they have been taking water samples and the Gulf is okay...still a teensy bit skeptical but we haven't been seeing tarballs for awhile now so maybe it is fine. Just waiting for all the gross seaweed to go away and then maybe we will go swimming in the Gulf again.
Oh, and if any of you were wondering, the collage was made at
I have 2 layouts to share from last week...haven't had much time to create anything lately:( I have a big order of pictures (Thanks Candi!!) from snapfish that should come soon and then I can get to scrapping! I need to catch up on my sewing class too, I have really fallen behind!
I used a sketch from Studio Calico for the one above. I made this for Candi's use older product challenge. The papers are at least 2 years old and those letters are at least 18 months old. I scraplifted a layout by Kandis Smith. *Oh and Becky, yup a 12x12...kinda miss the square sometimes:) Have a great weekend everyone!

I love what you created! Now show us the sewing!! I'm officially behind eight or nine projects. I wish theywere a bit more spaced out for my sanity though!

Enjoy these last few summer walks and take an extra beach one for US!

Thanks for the shoutout! lol. Glad the beach is looking better. COngrats to A for being a "super student" Nothing much going on here. Just trying to get the house in order to put on the market. I am tired of trying to motivate Eric to do projects!
