Show and Tell Monday- Tying up loose ends

Another week, another show and tell! This week is about wrapping up some things and showing you the end results. First off is the vision board from last week. I showed an unpainted frame last Monday, well here is the result. As you see, I didn't go with the Parisian theme after all. I was sort of inspired by a comment made by Francie of The Scented Cottage and decided to follow my creative side on this one. I was feeling blue, not literally. . and I got the angel for a great deal! I am rather happy with how it turned out. I even included some rose sachet from The Scented Cottage on the board. It is so yummy smelling, like fresh roses. It was such fun to make, now I am working on mini 5x7 boards. This should be fun!

Next up are some journals and tags I have had lying around and finally put the finishing touches on them. The journals are available, the tags will be soon! It feels so good to get something done that has been sitting there incomplete for so long. Speaking of incomplete for so long, my workspace is calling out to me. Maybe this week I'll finally get it done!
Finally, I end with pictures of my babies and the first day of school. Last Monday Julian was starting 1st grade. Well, we made it through week one with no tears. . well, ok, a few. . . yes it was me, but he loves it and I am so happy to be back in my routine. When I look at the picture from last week, and then this new one I am reminded how blessed we are to have such a bright, happy, healthy boy. Oh, and little sis, Francesca had to have her picture taken too, my little ham! Thanks for stopping by, have a safe and wonderful week!
