I wanted to give you a humorous list of things I was sorry for…(the weedy garden, the barrage of rain, the lack of newsletter and posts etc) but that would have just sounded like WHINING!   I really have lots to be thankful for…like yesterday when the thunder and lightening was entertaining Ella and I at breakfast and all I could think of was, not only was I going to the zoo today with kindergarteners, I was going with them in a monsoon!  So the fact that the rain held off THE entire time we were at the zoo, gives me MUCH to be thankful for today.  I even had only three girls in my group and one of their mom's joined us.  Easy peasy, and really, it was pretty fun.  I did decide again that my childhood dream to become a teacher was WAY off the mark and I can say with a fair amount of confidence that I won't be homeschooling any time soon.

But I am sorry that one of my Favorite sets…Elements of Style will be retiring in just a few short days.  This is such a versatile set! 

Elements of Style Stamp Set 

DSCN1077This is a card that we did this past month in one of my classes and since I had a few packets left over, I used the Cherry Cobbler in lieu of White embossing powder and I like both…completely different look for each.
