Here's Trouble Maker. Cooper's been chewing on everything he can get his mouth on. He even licks the walls. Crazy dog!!!

When I look at him ... it's hard to be angry.  I guess he's teaching me a lesson to NOT leave anything lying around.

Alison from Rockin Lovin Learnin was a HUGE help this week. She organized my office cabinets.
Thanks girl! We can't wait to show you what we've been up to! Stay tuned!

Clean Desk!

So happy that the Seeds of Happiness Apples arrived! I can't wait to share these smiles.

 Fun day at the park. It was super hot this week. Isla was modeling one of the giveaway items from Mixed Media Designs.

Found a sweet friend to make some vinyl letters for my BEE binders. I'm very excited to see if these last longer than regular old stickers.

Went to our District Media and used their die cuts. They have a much bigger selection.

Since it's Saturday Snapshots then hopefully some of you own a DSLR camera. If not, I would highly suggest saving up for one. Did you know you aren't allowed to use any images from google on your blog? You can be fined up to 8,000 dollars so now I plan to take pictures of everything I need to show you all. Click here to read the article. I actually bought my first full frame camera last night.

 Next Saturday will be my BIG room reveal. I've been switching some things up so I'm not quite ready. 

Ready for the sweet giveaway. 
Check out these stylish camera straps that cover your own camera strap. How fun are they? A Diva and 3 Dudes have teamed up with me to give away a custom strap to one lucky winner. You will get to pick your fabric etc from their etsy store. 

You will also get to pick your color Seeds of Happiness large seed. These little dudes are great for sitting on your teacher's desk. They always bring a smile to my face. Use the rafflecopter below to enter! Good Luck to all!
