Fairy Eva & Back-to-School Stories!!!

While my lil guy was making a Lego tower and knocking it over all around my bedroom ;) and 'big boy' was enjoying his freedom ;) I got to make a quick lil card using Mojo Monday's Sketch 103 and Flutter By Wednesday #74 - Use Pink!!! and a butterfly or fairy...
Fairy Eva has to be one of the sweetest TGF stamps!!! Each stamp really has their own lil personalities that just shine through - and Eva seems like the type of Fairy to ease your day and make you smile :) Smile Card Details:
Paper(s): Making Memories Sabrina DP; Recollections Black CS
Stamp(s): The Greeting Farm Fairy Eva Rubber Stamp
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copics; Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Markers
Accessories: Stampendous Geo Shapes Sparkler Stickers; K&Company Alpha Glitter Stickers; American Crafts Ribbon
So, here was how our Wednesday went... first day of school!
Meet my Kindergartner!!! A day full of "first's" for all of us!!!
For Nicky - First time on the bus!!! First time packing his own lunch!!! First time picking out his whole outfit!!! First time having to go to the cafeteria!!! First time realizing that Mommy was actually not going to be following him anywhere! LOL!
It was a busy day for him :) and thankfully, it was a perfect day too!
For Matt - First time he didn't really mind Nicky being around for so long, more on that in a sec...
For Me - First time I let my baby go somewhere, on a big bus, all by himself AND didn't follow either!!! First time that I counted down every single minute of the day ;)
... and Matt and I ate lunch and had snacks when we knew that Nicky would be eating them too! hee, hee!
So, when Nick got off the bus, he had the biggest, goofiest smile on his face and said:
"I ate my lunch!!!"
LOL!!! I guess he didn't have time to miss us!!! Perfect!!! I'm so happy 'my big boy' is so happy :)
Sooo... Matt didn't feel very well the last night and this morning - he slept in and missed saying goodbye to Nicky... when he woke up, he asked about Nicky, I told him that Nick had to go to school today... Matt said, "Oh, I hope he haves a good day" - Awwwwwwww!
Other than that, I think that he liked having a quiet day alone... he's feeling better, so we'll see how tomorrow goes ;)
Thanks for letting me share!
G'nite :*)

Your card is very pretty Margie! I love your layout and pretty embellishments and your adorable image!
Just reading your post brought back memories of my sons first day of school. I was the nervous one, he on the other hand was fine! Now I can't wait for the lil bugger to go to school! *smile*
Thanks for sharing the pictures of your lil men, they are very handsome!

Look at how cute this is! I love how you changed the sketch a little and your coloring on little Eva is awesome! So so cute!

Adorable. I might be missing it, but I couldn't see if it was a large card or scrap l.o. Either way, it is darling. First day of Kindergarten. My children are all grown, but the first day back to school was always so hectic and fun. I miss my kids being little. Enjoy!
