This week the PB blog is using sketches to showcase their cards. The cards they have shown yesterday and today are gorgeous! I know I have a file somewhere on my computer full of sketches and books too, I really should use them more often to get ideas for cards. I stamped a writing stamp on Memory box PP, and then the a portion of the flower on two additional squares and colored with copics.
Yesterday I had a parent-teacher conference with Owen's 3rd grade teachers. I had the two little ones in tow. Those of you who have seen the pictures I post of my children know Wyatt has the most beautiful wild curls. Everyone that see's him just wants to get ahold of him. However he is quite ornery and a little anti-social until he gets to know you. When we walked in they were going on about his curls and how cute he was, as I was sitting down I hear him tell the teachers "your fat" not once but twice. I wanted to die, and I know the one saving thing is they were not! I scolded him, and apologized, Owen's teacher smiled and told me she had 4 children and she totally understood. I still have no idea where he gets this stuff. At the dentist a few weeks ago he told the technician she was hideous, really! I can only imagine what school is going to be like with my him. He has such a strong personality and doesn't hold back on his feelings. Owen's conference went well, he is not performing up to the expectations in reading. That teacher is constantly sending notes home. He actually does well on the grade test, but the state test on the computer it almost seems like he didn't try. Otherwise he is doing great in math, so just going to keep up with it and see how he does.
