smooshy cardstock flower...

Happy TGIF!!!
Are you ready for Easter this weekend??? When Ashley and Josh were younger...we always dedicated Good Friday to Easter Egg Coloring. Now that they are older, they still like coloring eggs, but we usually do it on Easter Sunday after lunch because of their busy schedules. Luckily Mike and Josh love hard boiled eggs (yuck!!).

I will be busy running around today (I am hoping to get everything checked off my short list(groceries, Easter basket stuff, dry cleaners, vacumm and bathrooms clean), I am hopeful to get it all done because Ashley's friend Lindsay will be visiting this weekend and I am going to do a photo shoot of the two of them on Saturday (looking forward to that), and after all the shooting (with my Canon) we will most likely get a treat here.

I brought all my Easter treats to work yesterday (since I have today off *woot woot*), for my work peeps.

April is a big Birthday month~so I have been making birthday cards. I wanted to try one of the smooshy flowers with regular cardstock, and I must say...I like it!!! You really have to crumple up the paper though, almost to the point of ripping.
