Blowing Kisses..

Hi there! On Monday, Ava is leaving home overnight for the first time. Well, first time for more than one night AND out of state. She's going to Centri-Kid with some others from church and will be gone all of next week. Eek. They actually are supposed to come back Friday, but since Harry Potter comes out Thursday at midnight, i'm going to ride up to Kentucky Thursday evening with a friend and get her. Is that crazy? Leaving church camp to go see a movie about Wizards? Eh, maybe so, but welcome to our world. We're total Harry Potter nerds...lol. :)


While they are at Centri-Kid, they can receive mail so I thought I would create a few cards of encouragement to send her. She's not exactly excited about going because of her Eczema and the way her skin behaves. The thought of putting on/taking her meds and being around kids and outdoors makes her anxious (and mommy,too!!), but I know she can do it. I mean, come on, she's at Church camp. I figure God will help guide her through it and give her a peace about it. If He can't, no one can! 


Anyway (wow, i'm talkative today!), here is one of the cards I am sending her. I used the current Wee Memories challenge which was to create something that reflected summertime. 



Nothing is more summer than pinwheels, right? Well, that and lemonade or homeade ice cream..yum! 




The paper is from the MME "Life of The Party" collection and it's full of sugary sweet goodness. Just love those papers.

Tanks for stopping in! Be sure and stop over at the Wee Memories challenge and play along. You have 2 weeks to play!




Stamps: Lil' Inker Pinwheels
Card Stock: White (Papertrey); MME Life of The Party
Ink: A blend of Tempting Turquoise and Bermuda Bay (Stampin Up)
Extras: Lil Inker Pinwheels die; Apron die (The Cat's Pajamas); Ribbon (Papertrey)

Oh my fingers are crossed that she'll have a blast at Centri-kid! Have you tried giving her Bach's Rescue Remedy? It's good for stressful situations and I know eczema can be worsened by stress.
This is so cute and I think it's about the billionth time you've enabled me on those pinwheels. Going to go get them NOW!

Elegant simplicity; I love it. I think it is great you are going to get her for HP opening. Given her nerves around camp it'll give her something to look forward to. I know God will take care of her, though. Prayrs sent for a great week for her and you!

I am in love with your card. The bright and cheery colors! The clean layout. Just everything about it is perfect to me! And I love your story about picking her up to see Harry Potter. Hello, I am huge junkie over here. Read those books from beginning to end the moment they were released! Can't wait until Friday!
