April Paper Pumpkin & Updated Clearance Rack!

Before I get to today's samples, I want to let you know that our Clearance Rack has been updated with some new projects, so make sure to check it out here!

The yearbooks are supposed to arrive tomorrow - I'm so excited that they arrived so soon!  I've been catching up on everything for the end of the year activities.  I sent out Samantha's graduation announcements today and made up my Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I'll show you her graduation announcement tomorrow, so today I'm sharing my April Paper Pumpkin kit projects.  I mailed out the bonus project today and on my instructions, you'll see I wrote May - cross that off and write in April! I've been checking my May calendar and trying to get everything on there.  So here is the kit:

The kit opened.  
Here are my projects:
(I added a couple extra pearls in the flowers)

(I added pearls in the flowers)

(Yes, pearls in the flowers - again).  I also punched a flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch out of the bow paper.

I used just the envelope as a treat holder for some biscotti cookies, then punched a couple flowers using the Petite Petals Punch, then added a rhinestone.  

Added some rhinestones to the center of the Crushed Curry bow.  
I used the Flower Frenzy Die & Petite Petals Punch to make the flower.  

Just punched a few 1/4" holes in the right side of this one.  Can you tell I stamped "MOM" upside down to make "WOW"?  It works, I think, well....almost....

I cut up one of the cards and made these 2 cards:

I used a Crushed Curry CS base, then Gold Glimmer Paper and Whisper White card stock with the Stars Framelits Collection.  

I added the double flower (as used above), with a button from SAB 
The Flower Frenzy Die & Boho Blossoms Punch are both retiring, so make sure to order while you can!

Weekly Deals

I'm almost finished with the band yearbook -woohoo!  Hoping to have it finished, proof read and submitted by the end of the week.  I had to take off some time for Samantha's senior prom.  It was last Saturday and I drove a van of kids over to Memphis for photos at the Botanic Gardens, then dinner at PF Chang's and then back to Jonesboro for the prom.  I think they had fun and the gardens were beautiful.  Here are some photos:

Updated Clearance Rack & Day 2 in NY!

Clearance Rack - Up to 80% Off!
Stampin'Up! has updated their Clearance rack with some items up to 80% off!  Click here to check out the great deals and stock up for next fall.

Yesterday I went to a bridal shower about 1-1/2 hours out of town, then a show in Paragould and didn't get home until 10:00, so needless to say, I didn't get anything done yesterday.  Today is cleaning, laundry, planning out the week, cutting the supplies for our Sheltering Tree class on Tuesday and then hopefully getting all the photos into the slide show for Samantha's 18th birthday.  I've done this for all the girls and she's the last one.  I'm about 1/3 of the way through it, then we have to add music and do the finishing touches.  After that, I'll be working on our band yearbook - ugh!  That will take the majority of my spare time this month, but it will be worth it - I hope.

Here are some day 2 photos of our trip.  We got up early and went to the Statue of Liberty, visited the 911 museum and memorial, then walked down Wall Street, toured lower Manhattan, shopped in China Town, dinner at La Nonna in Little Italy and then saw the Lion King on Broadway.  IT WAS A FULL DAY!!!  I'm hurting just thinking about it.

Walking through Battery Park with the snow on the trees - beautiful!

Part of a sculpture from the twin towers in the park now, but will be moved soon to the new museum area. 

On the ferry over to the Statue of Liberty.

The tall building is the new One World Trade Center.  They are still working on rebuilding, but this tower is gorgeous.  

This is a wall of tiles where people were trying to create the shade of blue they remember the sky being when the towers fell.  Remains are interred behind this wall.  Very moving.  

These 2 water features are tiered and are located at the site of each tower and around each are the names of everyone who perished that day and the previous attack at the trade center.  

Shopping in China town.
