Back to School.....

I can't believe it is August already!! WOW this summer is just flying by! The girls only have a few more weeks left and they will be back at school!! Today I decided that I wanted to make the cards for there lunchbox on the first day!! This year I will have two going all day!! My bean (Lauren) starts a full day this year and life will just not be the same with her gone all day ~ she is my neediest child and I feel like I am going to be bored! haha!
Anyways here is Lauren's card:She loves the color purple and this is her favorite image!! My girls just love The Greeting Farm images ~ always stamping them so they can color them in. I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers and have used hearts for the challenge over at ROP which is "A little love".

************************************

Kelsey's favorite colors are blue and green so I went with this paper and I just love this image so I used her.(lol) Appropriate for school I thought!I followed the sketch from the Farm Fresh Friday over at the Greeting Farm blog. It was a beauty to work with! These are not my usual colors but I really liked the way this one turned out!! These papers and the previous card papers are from the MME paper pack that I picked up from Micheal's!! (Love them all!!)

OH MY Look here!! I just found this when I went to get the link for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge!!! Haha that is so cool!!! What a great surprise!!!

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by to have a look! Sorry for the long post! I have to get to bed now ~ it is 2am! I just had to stay up and papercraft as it has been awhile!! Hopefully the girls will sleep in! (LOL)
Have a great day and I hope wherever you are that your weather is cooperating!!

Hello !.
You may , probably curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields .
There is no initial capital needed You may begin earning with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you need
The firm represents an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

Its head office is in Panama with structures around the world.
Do you want to become an affluent person?
That`s your choice That`s what you desire!

I`m happy and lucky, I started to get income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that`s the AimTrust!.
I make 2G daily, and what I started with was a funny sum of 500 bucks!
It`s easy to get involved , just click this link http://hawawobam.builtfree.org/upakut.html
and lucky you`re! Let`s take our chance together to feel the smell of real money

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
