On Monday, Cameron and I went to Kindergarten round up! Cameron is so excited about going on to Kindergarten. I am excited for him, too. He is so ready. We held him back last year and he has blossomed so much in the last year! There were other parents there - I could see it in their eyes - sadness. I am sad also to some extent, it was much worse, with Caleb - I was not ready to let him go. Cameron is ready. He wants to go to school all day every day! I don't know what I am going to do with Kylie. She is a chatter box. Talk, talk, talk. That's a girl for you!

Cameron talks every day now, when I can I go to Kindergarten. I keep telling him, after his birthday. He just doesn't understand. I am sure, I will be sad on the first day of school - but today, I am excited for him and his excitement.

We also found out in the last week, we could move at anytime. To where? We don't know. When? We don't know. We are hoping for summer 2010, but who knows, what the Air Force has in store for us. I have decided, though, it is time to work on cleaning out the pantry. Time to eat, what we have and not buy too much more.

That's Amore - April Club

Here are my Layouts for my April Scrapbook Club. The first two layouts are of Kylie - it was the night of Tim's promotion to Lt. Col. party, March 2007. I wanted a picture of my little miss in this dress and she knew it. She would not cooperate for me! She was quite the pistol.

I used Level 2 That's Amore paper pack (X7107B), That's Amore Level 2 My Stickease Assortment (X7107C), and Love Always Journaling spots (X1407) on all of the layouts. I also used the Imagine (9029) Layout Idea book for all four layouts. The Layouts are Supporting Cast, Up the Tempo, Understudy, and Swing Rhythm.

I used tulip ink pad tulip ink pad (Z2166), tulip Exclusive Inks marker (Z2366), liquid glass (Z679) on the crown My Acrylix Adoration (B1320) and clear embossing powder (Z671) and the craft heater (Z555) on the March 2009 stamp of the month (Butterfly Wings). I also used chocolate distressing ink (Z1296) around the whole layout. The 'A' is from the Dimensional Elements Monograms (Z1055 - for the A's), I used a 1/4 of a sponge (Z697) dabbed in a tulip ink pad (Z2166), the rest of the letters for attitude are stamped in the chocolate ink pad (Z2111) with the My Acrylix Giggle Caps Alphabet (D1136)

On this layout I used the My Acrylix Homestead Alphabet (E1007) and 3-D Foam Squares (Z268) under the A. I also used a chocolate Exclusive Inks marker (Z2311) and Sweet Leaf Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2153).

With this layout, I used Chocolate Exclusive Inks Marker (Z2311) for the journaling and Tulip Exclusive Inks Pad (Z2166) for the stamping with My Acrylix Chocolate Alphabet Small (D1296).
