Hello.  I can't believe that I haven't blogged since last Monday!!  I think this is the first time since I began blogging I have gone that long.  And I haven't even been in my stamp room for that long.
My granddaughter was excused from taking ALL her exams this year due to the fact that she maintained a 95 average in all subjects for all marking periods.  So proud of her, she adjusted to Middle School finally and is enjoying it, and looking forward to eighth grade.  My Grandson had only a half day on Thursday, so they both spent the afternoon here, And on Friday we took in a movie to celebrate Michael's great report card and the end of the school year!

I have also been preparing for a garage sale at our local stamp store.  I've been bagging and pricing stamps for the sale.  Also, so many books I have purchased over the years are going too.

Here is little Tilda cooling off by dipping her feet in the water.

Stamps - Tilda, Large shell,Stamp It; Sea Grass, Posh Impressions;
Faux stitches, Hot off the Press; snail, Magnolia;
Papers: Prima Jack and Jill 6x6 pad
Dots - Craftwork Cards Candi - Cotton Candy color
Pink Fish - Punch
Flowers - Michael's
Stardust Stickles

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Saturday and weekend.  Until later..............

Forgot...good luck on your sale - that's a great idea! I only own one Tilda, so keep me in mind if you have any Tilda's or Edwin's to sell that don't sell at the craft sale! Hugs
