Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September. The holiday originated in 1882 as the Central Labor Union (of New York City) sought to create "a day off for the working man". Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894. Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.
So anyway, I am not ready for the end of summer and I hope I didn't bore you with the links .. I think they are all very interesting ... and I am not ready for the end of summer! So with all of that being said, I am off to "a Labor Day Weekend show" (name the man that made that line famous .. can you sing along with me?) Have a great weekend everyone ... I hope to blog before I go, but just in case ... Allison!

I love these lil keychains from Maya Road!! They are made of chipboard and Maya Road also has a stamp set that matches them perfectly! I used a Technique Tuesday alphabet stamp set for the lettering and just look how cute they are! The actually TT stamps have words within the letter -- like G has genuine, gallant, girl, giggle, give, glorious within the letter. I also had a "Z is for" zebra chipboard card, but Vandy (my husband) swiped it up to send to our daughter in the PeaceCorp .. in Africa!!! I couldn't be upset with him, he obviously was showing good taste in his decision of selecting one of my new creations. (lol)
Katie has created a darlin cupcake book (another Maya Road product) out of the large cupcake mini book for an upcoming class in September which is adorable! You might want to check out the website and get registered for her class, it will fill up fast .... and speaking of filling up fast, can you believe the Boys of Summer will be here in two weeks? It is going to be a blast!!!! Get signed up before all the spaces are gone, this weekend won't last long! I am so jazzed about hanging out with these guys for a number of reasons. They are easy on the eyes for one (giggling). Secondly, they are so creative with the product that My Mind's Eye puts out and we are getting all new product early because we booked this amazing weekend for all of you! And last, but not least, I get to spend the weekend with my favorite livelovescrap ladies and that is always a treat for me! So, get registered so we can play together on the 5th and 6th of September!

And here is the final picture this morning .. a look at one of our once well manicured flowerbeds. What I want you to really notice is the pink and green plant on either side of the white butterfly bush. It is called a mole bean plant or castor bean. Highly poisonous they say, however I have no intentions of boiling up and chowing down on the beans it is producing. The tale goes that farmers and gardeners use to grow these plants and pop a few beans in the mole holes to take care of the pesty little things. I just think they are lovely with beautiful fall color!

Digital World here we come. Prima has done it again. They have stunned us with this great new "Hybrid" product. The above pictured layout is completed using a new digital CD that is designed to coordinate with real embellishments. This will take your breathe away. Call the store to sign up with Michelle, she will be walking you through the digital world starting this Fall with her "Digital Series Classes" It is the perfect way to combine the best of both worlds... traditional scrapping and the breathtaking digital too!
Another super cute owl project. The paper should be arriving soon!
