Moosing him already...

Lame title huh? Haha! I guess I should probably explain it. My husband left this morning around 4:00 to go on a work trip with his construction crew. Our winter came early here and the guys don't have much work lined up yet. They can't stucco when it is this cold so they have to build homes instead. It could be a long winter, we will see. If we could survive off of Nick's youth pastor income as well as my teaching income alone, we would. However, he only gets paid part time and I am still a fairly new teacher so it just isn't enough. Anyway, they somehow landed a job out in Kansas so they will be out there all week working on that. Boy am I going to miss him!

I love this Riley image from Hanna Stamps! It is Nick's favorite image too (he's obsessed with moose) so I am dedicating it to him today! :D I colored Mr. Riley in with my Copics and pulled the colors from the fantastic Cosmo Cricket line called "Mr. Campy". I cut out the circles with my nestabilities and sponged the edges of all my layers. I added some ribbon and some pearls for a completed look!

Well I sure hope you enjoy your Monday. It's back to school for us and hopefully this week is a normal one. We have had some crazy few past weeks due to H1N1 and the death in our community. I believe I only had 8-9 students all of last week! I can't even begin to tell you how hard it is to teach knowing you will have to do it again the following week! It's the pits! Anyway, we should have the flu out of our system (hopefully) by now!

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great rest of your morning!
