All That Scraps May Review

Hello!  It's time to review Sweet November Stamps over at All That Scraps

I made a quick and simple card using Mia's Kite and some pretty papers from Echo Park's Sweet Girl.  Also did some simple paper piecing so this card didn't take me too long to make.

Here's a little close up of Mia.  She looks so carefree.  I don't think I've ever flown a kite or maybe my hubby had tried with the kids when they were younger but I don't think it worked very well.

I already feel like this week is flying by!  My oldest will be traveling to the East Coast next week for an American History tour all by herself!  Well, okay, there will be 40 or so other kids and some adult chaperones but still it's hard to let your kids travel without mom or dad.  And all the preparation for it makes me feel stressed out!  They suggested we pack each outfit in a Ziplock bag so it's easier for the kids to just grab a bag a day to get ready.  But so many other details to think about.

Seriously, where does the time go?  I can't believe she is brave enough to travel without us.  Now my daughter is just 3 inches shorter than me.  And her feet are almost the same size as mine!  Though maybe we could share shoes?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So cute! Yeah, not too many windy days around here...or at least I don't think about flying a kite when it is windy... Love the paper piecing, pretty papers! Wow, your daughter grew a lot, almost taller than me already! I won't recognize her next time I see her! The trip sounds fun! Glad you have the older one and get to go through all this first...

How fun and cute!! I really need to use this paper pad and stop hoarding it!

I know how you feel Eva, I let my oldest go to outdoor ed for 3 days last Fall, thought it was going to kill me! lol! I survived, and she had a blast!

such a beautiful card! the colors and papers are so cheerful!

My daughter had a similar experience a couple years ago, so I know what you mean by stress! Your daughter will have a great time, and she'll be back home before you know it! ;D

This is just the cutest image...and then you found even cuter DP! A wonderful combination!

What a milestone for your daughter, be proud! My daughter is leaving for college in August...I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

Sweet!! Aww, it must be time for the summer and all the fun things that go with it.
You could always send a phone with her with GPS tracking so you know where she is.
