The perfect tool bag

Only two more days left of the Changing Of The Seasons sale!

Don't forget to check out this post to find out how you can have a chance at winning one of 4 stamp sets that are being given away for the Going Away Party!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! On Saturday I was able to go stamp with my SU group. It was so nice to have some quiet time with friends without kids :) As much as I like some quiet time to myself every once in awhile, I sure do miss Matt and the girls when I'm gone!

On Sunday it was Matt's birthday so while he was out riding quads with his best friend, the girls and I decorated the house for his birthday party. We had a very busy day baking daddy's favorite cookies, going shopping, decorating and of course a little crafting too ;)

I was on the hunt for a masculine type project to give to Matt when I stumbled across this awesome project by Mel. It was a little time consuming but it turned out absolutely amazing!! I used it to put the cards in it that the girls and I made. Chloe was a little concerned though, she thought daddy might rip it when he put his tools in it because he wouldn't know it was paper ;). Yes, that's how well it turned out.

The tools and tag that I used on this project are just some scrapbooking embellishments that I have been hording for over a year. Boy am I glad that I had them, it was the perfect touch for this project.

And here is this weeks Week In Review winner!
