Template #214

Hi Everyone!
It's been a very long day. Tons of stuff still to do on the to do list that needs to be done by about 4pm Tuesday afternoon. I sure hope this rain lets up for a bit, the Birthday girl and I need to go get party decorations and balloons! I still can't believe it 3 years old Tuesday! They grow up so fast!
Speaking of growing up, We had parent teacher conferences tonight with the teenager. Before leaving I asked her if there was any thing she needed to tell us before we went. Her response was "nope doing good all b's and c's". Upon hearing that I had my doubts but I could only assume she was right. She has a special study hall for extra help so it is a possibility that it could be b's and c's. Actually this is what we got. Math B, English A, Orchestra A, Science F, Debate F, Geography D. All the teachers agree she is very bright, A pleasure to have in class and voluntarily participates during class discussions. The only problem is getting the work turned in. Been this way for so long now that I don't even know for sure what grade it started in. We have tryed all sorts of organization and assignment note books to no avail. She comes home from school saying she got it done in study hall and that all she has to do is her nightly reading for English. I'm ready to pull my hair out! I can't do the work for her and I can't turn it in for her. Those are her responsibilities but I can't get through to her.(Three years of summer school has not either) When the teachers say anything to her about it she clams up and starts to cry. (Just another one of her ploys) Which in turn gets her out of class. Over the years I've tried darn near everything. Any one got any good insight or advise on teens? Like I said I'll try just about anything.

OK enough of the downers, You'd think life was just terrible around here! Yes it gets rough at times, but what family don't have a few rough spots along the way? It's just that when you hit that same speed bump over and over it gets awfully old.

OK OK OK It's been one of those days and I feel like venting! But let's get to our Layouts and see if that improves things.

Our first layout to night has come to us from Robin.
Robins fur baby had some baby's of her own! Aren't they cute!
What breed is she Robin? and the pups? They look like they will be big!

Kit "Beautiful You" by: Digi Designs by Nicole

The kit is no longer available free on her blog but you can get it in her shop. If you hop on over to Nicole's blog you can get some pretty cool QP's made from this kit!
Simona sent in this next one that she did of her new kitten. Yep Mathilda joined them just a few months ago and then this one turned up hiding in there garage late last month. Her name Pulce translated to English means "Flea"! She was covered in them when they found her! She is a very affectionate little one and today while Simona and I were chatting she walked across Simona's Keyboard and had her computer doing all sorts of weird things. All in an attempt to get some lovin!
Kit: "Oh Crazy Girl" by Thaliris
This one I did for the Color Challenge this month at STS.
I snapped this picture looking across the river from our campsite.
Later that night it was so clear we were able to see the lights of the space station for a few minutes! It was a beautiful evening and a gorgeous night for sleeping under the stars.

The kit I used here is my "Autumn's Passion" that will be coming out on Sunday!
I also made this one awhile back when I was practicing my extracting and shadowing to make things pop up over frames and such. I used a picture of Simona's cat Lulu and then sent the finished LO to her as a small gift.
Oh Rats! I just accidentally deleted the Preview! Now I have to re upload it and my spacing in this post is going to be all messed up. Here goes...
