Such a Happy Day

Morning everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Ours was busy as usual but lots of fun.  The girls both had sports activities on Saturday morning, practice for L and a soccer game for K.  Afterwards DH was working a booth at the Women's Expo so we went down to visit him.  Got some super cute hair clips for girls, feather earrings for L, a book on soap making for L, and some fudge. :) 

Saturday night was the best though.  We went to see the IU soccer team play against Notre Dame.  About twice a year they come to play games here and we always try to get tickets.  Makes if feel a little bit like Bloomington.  We still miss that town so much.  It was an amazing game. IU scored a goal in the last 7 seconds to tie it up and then won in overtime.  GO IU!  :) 

Lots on my plate today.  My parents come on Thursday to visit.  There is a gymnastics meet this weekend and a skating competition they are coming to see.  I have to finish cleaning my house and have some crafty things to get done before they get here.  

Before I go I wanted to share my project for Emma's Paperie this week. We were given this adorable photo as our color inspiration.  Oh man, there were so many yummy colors in the photo, I couldn't possibly skip even one of them.  Loved how bright and fun the colors were.  


So I decided to use them all and came up with this card.  I am a sucker for lots of pattern papers so creating this card definitely made me happy.  


Hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!
