*The End*

Sigh... the day has come.... today is the end of summer vacation.  It's August 31st and while I know that technically summer isn't over until mid-September, I always think of September as fall.  Adding to the feeling like it's the end of summer is the fact that it is a whopping 7*C outside (and raining) right now.... and the kids go back to school in the morning.

I am so not ready for that early morning alarm clock!

I have been having a great time with my sister over the last week... lots of laughs, quite a bit of shopping, a little crafting... and a lot of just hanging out in the same room.  I can't believe she goes home tomorrow :-(

I had playing with some slightly different colours from what I usually do....  typically I look at these colours and think "masculine" but this time I paired it with flowers....

I feel your pain Nancy! I'm not looking forward to tomorrow morning or the next 10 months of getting up early! Maybe I'll craft more???

Beautiful! Love your colour choices..they're perfecly feminine paired with that stamp!

I too feel sad about the end of summer, it goes by so fast, but I'm so happy the girls are back in school tomorrow and we can get into a routine again.
