Relax - Use It or Lose It Challenge #8

This week at Use It or Lose It our challenge is Anything Goes. I made this card for an exchange we were doing in my Hostess Group. I was supposed to do a card for a man's birthday but with Father's Day coming up I left it kind of general so they could use it for Father's Day if they wanted to.
 I used the Relax stamp set (I believe it is retired) and Wings creative basics.

I hope you can join us this week!! and remember to use up your scraps (:

My Handsome Boy

 Man am I slacking or what!!! Work and nice weather have totally taken over my time!!! The countdown till the end of school has begun!!! 16 days!!!! Speaking of school, I ran into one of my students from 3 years ago at Walmart today!! She was that one kid in the class that gave me a reason to plan lessons every night (it was a jackpot class!!). She also gave me a beautiful card, with an even more beautiful note inside at Christmas that year (not to mention a  couple of boxes of chocolates) that I keep handy when things are nuts at work!! When she saw me she said "I can't believe it's you!!! How are you!? I want a hug". What a sweetie, eh!? She is now in her first year of college and doing really well (: It's really neat to see what your past students end up doing.

 This is another layout I did at my weekend crop in April. I have always loved this pic of Aidan at camp. It's so him.
 I used Echo Park's Little Boy collection for this one. Along with some Bo-bunny double dot cs (love that BoBunny dot paper!!) The journalling cards and buttons are CTMH. I bummed the twine from my dear friend Jen (: A big hug and thanks go to my sweet friend Stacey who did the beautiful zig zag stitch for me and then let me play/learn on her sewing machine. I did all of the purposefully messy stitching (:
 I am going to enter this in Seriously Creative's Challenge- Buttons and Twine, and Let's Get Sketchy's sketch challenge.

 So this Saturday is mine and Lee's 11th anniversary and we're actually going to get some time for just us. Our moms have agreed to take the kids for a couple of days so that we can either go to camp (and I will get to fish) or go out for dinner and a movie.... It will be a nice little break!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Jenn (:
