Its been so long.....

Hi all! WOW-has it ever been a long time since I posted! This crazy summer is almost gone already, and hopefully the cool fall will bring with it a slower pace!! It just seems odd to me that the kids start school back up the day after tomorrow! My Emily will be in the 7th grade, and because of money problems at the school district, she will be moving up to the High school, as they are shutting down the middle school.....it will be very interesting-they have told us that the 7th -8th graders will be kept in separate areas from the 9-12....we will see how it goes....not too excited about this transition at all!!
On another note, I would like to share a super fun file from THE CUTTING CAFE with you today! MILK CARTONS.....and there are all kinds of them....plain,  Fall and Halloween Milk Carton (the ones I worked with) and many more.....


Instead of cutting the pumpkin in the box so that there was a window, I just cut out the pumpkin twice on its own, then looked up a pumpkin on the cricut to get the little leaves. I also used the CARDZ TV stamp set Fall Fun for the sentiment, along with the You and are cut from the cricut.
I hope you will get the chance to stop by tomorrow over on THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG to check out what the rest of the DT came up with.

Wow! Our schools used to be K-8, but they opened 2 new middle schools so both my girls attended junior high for 7-8. Now one is in high school and 1 is an 8th grader. I think that is too young to mix, it was a shocker for my freshman! Best of luck, I'm sure the adjustment will go smooth! Fun project! Carri~Abusybee
Skittles!

Same thing happened at my little girl's school..She was in 7th grade last year and they moved them over to the HS..I was very concerned..but they really did keep them away from the 9-12 graders..Now she is in 8th...A lot of schools r doing this..Lovely fallish project..Krista

Very pretty!!! A perfect fall treat box...love the pumpkin on it! Yes, schools around are have been re-organizing too...so sad...and I hear they are losing teaches, too..another sad thought! Have a happy fall!! (and it's hard to believe your Emily is already a 7th grader...good grief "we" are getting old!!!)
