Waiting for Pre-K

Happy wonderful Tuesday everyone!
Well we are down to ONE computer in this household. One! Until our new cord and batteries come in, my pink laptop is the hottest commodity in the home. It stays in my craft room though, so I am always surrounded by one or more of the kiddos throughout the day as they watch YouTube, play computer games, or surf the web. Although I had originally set up my craft room to be my oasis, I LOVE having all the noise and will truly miss it come September!
While we are still enjoying summer, my 5 kiddos are so ready for school to begin since we've moved to a new area. There's only one little Wilson that will be left at home with his mommy. {Insert 'why do they have to grow up so quickly' sad face here.} Isiah and I won't know what to do! The last time I was home with just one Wilson was when Kalil was a toddler! Since then they've always had a younger sibling to hang out with.
Here's a card I made for Iz man, I just know he'll wish he was part of the school crew when September rolls around:

Isn't Oliver the sweetest? I inked him up for Farm Fresh Challenge's school theme, using Jen's current Deconstructed Sketch:

I couldn't believe I ran out of my favorite American Crafts cloud paper, so I had to go old school and make a cloud template of my own to sponge on to the background. Now I'll never run out again! heehee!
Here are some other fun challenges that I am entering Oliver in:

Creative Stamp Friends: Create your own background
Creative Inspirations: Back To School

Thank you so much for coming by everyone, I appreciate your visits!

Your card is fab Joni! I think your coloring, on the hair especially, is tops!

I love your story about your kiddos and school. This year my youngest is going to preschool (half days, 4 days a week) and I know what you mean by they grow up too fast! He's super excited so I am too but AHHH! Tears!

Thanks for your sweet words on my blog!
