Good morning everyone!

Just a quick post this morning. It is going to be a busy but fun day. I get to start helping out at another elementary school this morning. Our church is partnering with one of the lower income schools in town to help try to bring the kids' reading scores up. I am really looking forward to this, because although I help out at my girls' school all the time, I feel like a really have a chance to make a difference here. I miss teaching a lot and this is a way for me to use my talents to help someone else. Then after leaving that school, I get to go help K's class in the computer lab. It is a great way to get to know the kids in her class a little bit better.

This evening we have a babysitter coming so DH and I can go see a murder mystery to benefit a local charity. I have not been to a murder mystery in years. I am sure it is going to be a wonderful time.

I did want to share two quick projects with you before I go though. The first is a layout I created for a recent CK call. We love visiting Chicago and Geno's East is one of our favorite stops. I added speech bubbles for a unique twist on the journaling.



I created this card right before leaving for CHA for the Card-a-licous challenge this last week. The challenge was to use a tag and at least three different papers. Make sure to stop by and check out all the other designers fabulous work!


Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
