Freebie Friday - September 5th, 2014 - My Mind's Eye - Here is Happy

Hi Everyone,

It's Friday!!!  Time for another Freebie Friday...

Today is the half way point to post your projects to the  School challenge.

It's SEPTEMBER.... yay!!!  Starting tomorrow, Saturday the 6th, Pumpkin Spice will be back to weekly challenges.  So get those papers, adhesive and cutting tools ready to play!

Challenges will be posted weekly, but will have a two week submission period.  I hope this is not too confusing.  Hollar if you have any questions.

I am catching up this week and next on all my administrative duties... yikes.  I took some time off this summer and it is really showing in my piles of 'to do' lists.

I have had such a fun summer with Pumpkin being home with me.  We did get addicted to the show "Ugly Betty".  That was our night time cuddle show a couple times a week, with popcorn of course.  She loves Betty!  We call it the 'UB' because we don't like the word ugly.

For those that are wondering... YEP, I cried!  Wednesday was Pumpkin's 1st day back to school and they wouldn't let me walk her all the way to her classroom. (lol)

We had our hugs and kisses at the gate and I was left to watch her walk off to the playground......   my 3/4 of mile walk home was sad, exciting and humbling.  Pumpkin is becoming so independent and confident, but I am so proud that she still finds comfort in moms 'hugs and kisses'.

Who else sheds a tear or two on the 1st day back to School?

Ok... the FREEBIE..... here you go!

This is a paper pad from My Mind's Eye.  "Here is Happy"  I think with all the 'new beginnings' this week "Here is Happy" is very appropriate.  The papers are perfect for end of summer projects.  The colors are not super bright but they are not fall colors either.  You have chevrons and dots for layers and flowers and other adorable patterns.

This weeks Freebie Friday.....

Freebie Friday has changed a little bit. 
1st - You have a FULL WEEK to link up
2nd - YOU LINK UP - no comment necessary, but highly appreciated.

Have a great weekend everyone.  See you again tomorrow Freebie Friday Winner Announcement and a new Challenge.



A note for international participants.
I am thrilled to have you play along on the Freebie Friday's and Challenges.  However, due to the high cost of international postage, I ask that you pay the difference.  I will email you an invoice for the Postage amount over what I would have paid for a domestic shipment.  Please feel free to email me with any questions.

Yup, I still cry and I have a senior in high school this year down to fifth grade. I also cry on their birthdays! I am terrible.
I have to say I use MME on probably 99% of my projects, they are my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win this pad. ~Lizzy, Colour Kitty

It's been a while since my children were little. My middle child was married 2 yrs ago and now my baby just got married 2 wks ago and let me tell you...I cried! They grow up so fast and before you know it there married, having babies and you find yourself taking your Grandchild to daycare/preschool! It's crazy!
