And Stop.

The Friday of the first week of school is always such a let down. We've been running full blast, talking to hundreds of students, and running around like mice being chased with a broom. Then Friday comes along and it's all western themed music and tumbleweeds blowing across the student center.
Don't get me wrong, it's nice to be able to breath, pee, and eat during the work day, but it is such an abrupt let down after the previous days of mayhem. We're all kind of on edge because we don't know how to suddenly just stop and be calm.
So for giggles and grins this morning we chased a mouse around the student center with a broom, a box, and some student handbooks. Those suckers are fast and boy can they jump! We were promised that humane traps would be set, but frankly I'm the one that called the thing "vermin" so I can't say I care one way or the other.
The Fine Print: Stamps, card toppers and all the parts except the embossing folder (Cuttlebug) and green ribbon (my stash) by Club Scrap "Sail Away."

This collection is just beautiful, but the final one is my favorite! I just get lost in that deep blue color - it's beautiful!

Great cards PJ! I love these sea faring images the most of what I've soon so far :) And I'm working backwards. Got me laughing here about the mouse saga.

Hugs

All of these are such calm and peaceful scenes! I love the tale of the mouse. I agree they are vermin and I'm not fussy how they go as long as they go!
