Toga, toga, toga

Yes, this morning I wrapped myself in a toga and paraded in front of the entire teaching staff at my daughters' school. Thankfully I was with a two other moms and the principal. Sadly, I do not have a picture to share with you and have heavily bribed the mom with the camera so hopefully the pictures will NOT appear soon. LOL
If you have followed my blog for a while, you may remember me talking about the Read-a-thon fund raiser that our school does. It is an amazing production, including a book fashion show the day of kick-off, cool incentives and ways of tracking to keep the kids motivated (that is my part) and lots of other fun. The fund raiser doesn't start until Oct. 1 but we presented the program to the teachers this morning. The reason for the toga? Our themes at the schools this year (there are 2 schools in our PTO-a primary school and an elementary school) are Percy Jackson and the Magic School Bus.

That is the reason I have been MIA. My sweet friend Amanda and I have been spending every day at the school. We have literally been walking our girls into school and staying until school is out. Monday we didn't leave until 5:30. Things are not done yet but they are coming along and hopefully I will not have to spend quite that much time there next week.

I do have a project to share with you today.

I covered a chipboard star from Magistical Memories with some pattern paper. I also created the banner by cutting the points off another chipboard star from Magistical Memories. The gorgeous bling in the banner is created using Clear Pure Blossoms from Creative Charms. I also added some of Gradient Gem Stickers to the photo mat.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!!!
