H{ippity} Hop Beginnings

Good morning! It is bright and early here today and school has begun. DD#2, Hannah, is off to high school today. Wow.

This is the only picture in which I could get her to smile this morning. She was on her way out the door to head to the bus stop. DS#2 (Taylor) will have his first college class this evening, as he graduated high school in June. He and Cody (DS#1) will be attending the same community college that I do. They have 2 classes together, which I hope will help Cody.

Now for the real reason you've come to my blog today, since I know you don't really want to hear me brag about just how proud I am of my kids. Today is the weekly h{ippity} hop. A full list of participants is listed on the {ippity} blog.

My card this morning uses Get Sketchy #52 and JUGS 47, which is a colour challenge based on Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely paper (ooooh, I love this collection!) In honour of Hannah's first day of high school, I pulled out The Simple Things, using the sentiment "New Beginning." It's appropriate for so many different occasions. This is a gorgeous set. In this card, it's really girly, but the last time I used it, August 2, it was very CAS.I have one kit left in stock, but I'll be placing a new {ippity} order shortly, so if there are any {ippity} kits you've got your eye on, drop me a line and I'll hook you up!
