The Angel Company (TAC) Card

Since we've had a week off from school, I've been making cards to keep myself occupied while the kids play their Wii.  I found a piece of scrapbook paper I'm sick of seeing so I decided to make it into cards.  This card was made with an image and sentiment from The Angel Company also know as TAC (  I chalked with SU! chalk the image and inked around the circle with Close To My Heart ink.  Patterned paper from a Mat Stack, cardstock from DieCuts With a View, punch from Paper Shapers, ribbon and rhinestones from unknown source.

We have winter!

We've had a week of snow days this week!  It started Tuesday with ice and sleet making the roads dangerous.  Not only that, but high was 21 and the low was 9!  What?!  Here in Texas we never knew the thermometer had single digits--we thought it was an urban legend.  LOL  It finally snowed last night.  It's been snowing throughout the day, too, which is another new experience for us.  I thought I would share a  couple of pics of the kids and dogs enjoying the snow.  Lily (the big dog) wasn't sure about the snow because this is her first winter, but she now loves it!

Science Fair Winner!

I'm so proud of my little one.  She won first place in her grade level at her elementary school's science fair.  The judging was done by independent people outside of the school so the judging would be fair and unbaised.  It's funny because she wasn't expecting to win.  She did her project simply for fun.  She wanted to know how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop.  :)  Yep, you remember that commercial, right?  After doing the experiment, we discovered it took on average 426 licks.  If I had to eat another tootsie roll pop, I would have gotten sick! 

A picture of her, her project, and her medal that she is extremely proud to show off.
