Crafty Secrets Goodness!!!

I made this about a month ago when I actually had time to stamp! It was for a SCS Crafty Secrets challenge, but I'll be danged if I have any idea which one! Of course I added my two favorite colors of Stickles: Aqua and Copper. The main image is from the Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps Garden sheet. Creative Play Stamps has a huge selection of Crafty Secrets and Stickles, and I get all mine from them! Anyway, I love CS, and I love autumn cards, so this one makes me happy!!

Check back here tomorrow morning for Creative Cuts and More's September Blog Hop! We're doing Fall and Halloween, and I can't wait to show you what I made! If you are a Twilight fan, I think you'll like it! The fun all starts at Diecut Diva!

On a personal note, I love teaching junior high. I never, ever thought I would! I thought I was a high school teacher through and through! However, junior high is exhausting! It's way, way, way more demanding than high school! Who knew? I come home from school every day so exhausted I can barely function! I actually have to take an Advil when I get home because I'm so stiff and sore from standing, walking & bending for nine hours. I'm assuming that eventually I'll get used to it, and I hope that I lose a few pounds in the process. I'm usually too tired to eat much, so I think my intake has been cut in half, and my movement has doubled.

Well, I need to go over to the school for a few hours. I've been over every Saturday and Sunday since August 12th, except when we took DS to New Orleans. I think as I learn my routines and become more organized, I won't have to work every weekend, but for now, that's what it takes to get the job done.

Well, NOW I think I understand why you've gone missing! I got sleepy just reading about your days! Still miss you at SCS, though! I'll keep checking up on you--wish my middle school daughter had you for a teacher--she would LOVE you!

I bet you are tired! My cousin teaches middle school math and she loves it. Her students are of vastly assorted maturity which is challenging.

Gorgeous card. I love how you add special details to kick it up a notch.

Thanks for taking the time to blog when you are so busy. We love to hear from you!
