Holiday Freak Swap

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week got off to a great start! I think it has for us! We had back-to-school night last night. It was great to meet Nick's teachers and to see how his day goes. Nick had come home one day last week to say that it seemed as if a lot of teachers knew him. And we asked him how that was and Nick said it was because of Pat. Well, Pat used to work there and he knows quite a few of the teachers there. And I remember when we adopted Nick, they threw a big baby shower for us and Nick got passed around to be held by all! So, I guess it would seem that they should know him - lol! Anyway, when we were there last night, Pat got to meet up with all of them again. We just have a really good feeling about Nick's school year! 

Today's card is one that I did for the Control Freak swap group that I am in. It seems that the cards have been mailed out. I am anxiously awaiting mine!! I do like the way this one turned out! The scallop border behind the water colored circle is a strip punched with the scallop trim border punch. Then I notched in between the open scallops. Then I used a ton of glue dots and worked it around gluing it down behind. I hope that makes sense! Thanks for stopping by and have a super Tuesday!!
