I'm Back...

I've had such a great week, very productive!!
Four of my six paper lines are completed!! Woo Hoo!! That's not to say that I won't change my mind a thousand times before we go to press... (right Heather)!!!
I spent some time with this little thing yesterday; Victoria and I played "house" with her little playhouse!! She is getting so big and very VOCAL!!!

Yes, I got in her little play house too...

I think Victoria might be getting tired of me taking her picture all the time. Look at her face, it's like "hey, get that camera out of my face aunt Nikki"!!! I love her!!

I had to join in on the card making fun too... These cards
are from my Henry's Brilliance paper line and I used my "Cutie Cut-Ups" project cards to make these and of course added a little embellishing to them. Hilde and the DT girls did a great job on all their cards and Hilde will be back to do another challenge next month!! Thanks Hilde you did great on my blog!!

This picture of Henry was taken in the 3rd grade, he starts 8th grade tomorrow!!! HOLY COW.... 8TH GRADE!!!! (We start 6am wake-up calls tomorrow morning, Tuesday. Where did our summer go.)

I had to share these two projects with you all. The one above was created by Nathalie Leonelli on my DT and the one below was created by Susan Dupre, who is also on my DT!! I loved them both so much!! Love the 6x12 layout about Nathalie's son taking the couch apart, and who wouldn't want this platter in their home!! Seriously cute!!! Love the horseshoe above the door, I have one above my door, so it will bring me good luck all year!!

I have a lot going on the next few months, I'm going to be teaching in five different states, one of which I'm going to be in twice!! I'm also going to be teaching in my home state in Kansas City, MO on October 24th and that will be a ton of fun! I'll have more on those other places & dates as they all get closer. Well I think that's it for now, off to make a card for my great aunts b-day and then to bed because...... I have to be up at the crack of dawn!! Goodnight! -Nikki

I love the fact that you think that I am as talented as Kathleen but the "Can we destroy the couch" LO is actually from me, Nathalie ;)

Love your cards Nikki, and that couch layout is soooo cute. What a great picture!
Getting so close to finishing the next lines makes me so excited to show them off!!!
You need to post all of the classes your teaching in case people want to take them!!!
