Mets Shower Favor 2, Back to School and WORK too!

Hi Everyone,
Gone for 2 weeks or so but now I am back in the craftroom for a last hooray before going back to work tomorrow. UGH!!!! So I had a wonderful vacation at the Jersey Shore. Love me some LBI.  I have to show you my moon pictures. Not because they are great but because I love them. I took a pic on the first night and then one on the last night.  How cool is my Nikon to catch the craters . . .

Awesome, between the moon and the ocean I started to feel a bit small. Which was OK by me! The whole family had a so much fun, We did all the normal Jersey Shore things and I shopped my little heart out too. The sun was great and no rain fell on our parade.  Please don't ask about how many calories I consumed!  Yummy food every night! Not just back to work but back to diet too!  So I took an extra 2 days off so that I would be home for the Stampin Up holiday catalog launch.  Yes, I did get up at like 3:00 a.m. so I could place my order. Yes, I did. Crazy I know but can you blame me?, it is an awesome holiday catalog.  Good thing I saved some of that vacation money cause I did some heavy damage this morning. So since getting home on Saturday I knew I had to get some work done on the Met themed baby shower favors. On Sunday I used my ZING to cut the 80 Night of Navy box bottoms. It was a pain because I could only get 1 box on an 8.5 X 11 piece of cardstock. So shame on you Stampin Up for no longer making 12X12 cardstock in the colors. So that was a full 80 cuts and the left over scraps? well who knows what I will do with all that paper.  On Monday I cut all the box tops, but this time I hand cut them.  I just could not get into loading the mat hitting the cut button etc. . . . Once done with that chore I hand scored them both. Yup, 4 score lines times 160 yet again equals OUCH! but it is done and I am a happy crafter! Here is a pic of 40 box bottom:
They folded up great and I used SU fast fuse to glue them.  So now it is onto the belly band for all those boxes. Before I go the little one (who is no longer little) is headed back to school tomorrow.  Her Mom took her for a hair cut and a mini shopping spree for some new clothes.  I have to share last years first day and a pic from last night.  I could just hug the life out of her I love her so much . . .Here she is  ready to conquer Middle School.
And here she is the mighty conqueror.
 Wow, what a difference a year makes! Congrats Rory on making it into honors math and performing arts gifted program! Hope to be back with more of the Met's shower favors by Saturday, wish me luck. Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Your vacation sounded so fun Lysa! It's always nice to just get away, enjoy family, eat great food and shop! lol I'm sure you enjoyed the beach as well! Yes, I think the SU Holiday mini is fabulous as well and pretty much the whole book is on my wish list! lol I didn't order anything yet though. Can't wait to see your favors when they are done. Ok, the first picture looks like the Rory I remember in pictures, the second picture looks like a young lady that is in high school!! Holy Moley did she ever grow and mature! No longer a child! Isn't that scary?! I know of this love you speak of, as it is the same love I have for my granddaughters. Your so lucky to have her under your roof to enjoy all these years with her. Such wonderful bonding time! Hugs, Brenda
