It's Manic Monday for sure! :)

Work Work Work. Just trying to get it all done before Wednesday comes and we leave for vacay. I love how the scrubster springs it on me that the van needs to be serviced before we go. Ah, okay..let me squeeze that in just like i am squeezing in grading finals, group projects and seeing all my clients in the next two days. ARGH! The funny thing is, I would have waited til the last minute anyway....shhhh! ;)

Just wanted to share a layout I did awhile back with the Serendipity May kit. I am feeling sentiment since the day is here the forum closes. I know change is good and having somewhere else to hang my hat does help but I do miss it already. Please check out the store for 70% off!!! There is some BG and Pink Paislee in there yet..not much but some ;)

I random embossed on this layout with my Quickutz and the polka dot folder. My good friend Susan Stringfellow does this on her lo's and i just love it! She is so inspiring to me and was a long time member of the DT over at Serendipity so this is cheers to her ;) Pls check out her blog!


I used my scraps, punched the with my Stampin' Up border punch and layered them....


I also used my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder's dies with some Core'dinations Cardstock.



Okay...time to run and get ready for work and Vacation!!! Only a few more days!!!
