What Happens When You Feed Your Children Vegetables.....

The answer to my post title is.....They Grow Up! (and you lose your mind....)
HELLO you wonderful people whom I have been missing for what seems like forever.

Long story short.  Our daughter transferred to a new school. They added up her credits and she had so many honor classes that she qualified to graduate a year early. You'd think I'd be all like, 'YEAH', but really it was more accurately like, 'WHAT THE ....' because we found that out in April and had 3 weeks roughly to plan a graduation party and apply for college.  Needless to say I've been in a crazy place for a bit.  
So, when Regina designed this amazing product Design Team Planner Set, I knew I had to make it to help preserve what brain cells I had remaining!
It's got ALL KINDS of cool stuff that makes my life easier, like a calendar, and tabs, and pages and pages full of ways to make being on a Design Team MUCH more ORGANIZED! 
Yeah Regina! You're a life saver!!
But wait, there's more! If that's not captivating enough, you're not going to believe this Craft Supply Planner Set she also created.  Here is a picture of her book below.  
Talk about oodles and gobs of organizational's unbelievable!
She's even created a sheet to organize your Washi tape collection!
I now have peace of mind when I come into my craft room and despite all the other crazy that is floating around, at least in my little art room, I know I'm on the ball!
All of these files are available @
Also wanted to share that I used more files from The Cutting Cafe to bring the BIG party together.
Here is our daughter and son when they were 'wittle bitty'....
They have a wonderful relationship.
This is actually last year's family photo that is hanging on our wall. LOL! I love it :)
And here they are all growed up this year.
EEK...she's graduated!!
The table setting getting ready for the party
And do you see that little box to the right on the tree? 
That's a present box from the Little Red Wagon Box template.
Because we were already planning a Mother's Day and several birthday's party, we had to add the very special Graduation Day into it as well so it officially became the 
Happy GradMoBirThersUation Day Party!!
That is why you see the multiple randomly placed numbers, the graduation hats, the boxes for presents, the flowers for Mother's day and the hysterical Tim Holtz birds that just look plain confused, because that sums it up perfectly.
Credit goes to my wonderful blog buddy Richard for the theme inspiration (what to do when there's mass confusion)....check this out!
Anywho, I'm back now with a few less marbles than before, but I'm so excited to visit all your blogs and catch up!
Biggest of hugs to you and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xxx

Hello Q,
Loved reading your post....oh how I have missed them.
Reading between the lines I think you are one proud Mum, and so you should be. You have two amazing kids.
Crazy life you may have, but it is times like this that create the memories that will last well into your old age, oh they will be treasured. The planner itself looks great, the card set fabulous and your cake is crazily unique and fun and I bet it was delicious.
Well done Brittany.

Well you have yourself two good lookers!! Lovely to see them 'in person' having read mentions of them over last years. Now who made that TV set for your son?? Congrats to your clever daughter (apple never falls far from tree). The confused birdies cake is BRILLIANT!!! As are all the other decorations. Hope you get to put your feet up now and chill, tho something makes me think your household is always kinda crazy (in the most lovable way!). Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Nicola x

Did you make that delicious looking cake!?! Congratulations Lisa for your role as Super Mom to two delightful young people (not to mention creative)! I remember when you posted a play that your son did when he was in High School. Smart and creative and a little on the zanny side. Sounds like their Mom to me!!!!!
Wonderful planner and I do love those crazy birds. But the stars of the the show? Why your kids of course!!!

No wonder you've been absent lately. I very much enjoyed reading your post and looking at all the photos too. You can be proud of your children:)

Mitralee said...

Mitralee said...

Ok. I feel a lot calmer. And there are cake photos too with awesome scrapbooking stuff on top with candles! Omg! See, I can look at the photos now calmly. So super excited she graduated early but I can imagine the OMG nature of the whole thing. I hope there was wine involved for you too! Super cool card & cake & planner! Hugs from NY on all your BIG LIFE EVENTS! oh and happy Mum's Day too a bit belated!

Tammy said...

Oh wow, wow, wow! Bless you and bless your daughter for adding her outstanding, amazing accomplishment to your confusion! Happily ever after to all! You've really, really out done yourself, me thinks you deserve a much needed rest in your craft room or some tropical isle! Wonderful and creative as always, no one can top what you've done!

Jeri said...

Great story about your daughter! Best of luck to her! Your planner cover is so darn cute. I swear, I must be the only person who doesn't use tons of washi tape. I've got about 8 rolls and the only thing I use them for is holding my metal dies in place when I run them through my diecutting machine.

Doris E said...

Congrats to your daughter. I love your planner!!!

Margaret said...

Oh my... I would lose my mind too! Extra special congrats to your DD! That is quite an accomplishment! I LOVE the cake and your special occasion tree looks especially festive too!

How sweet is that little, dirty face in the first photo! While I haven't met them, I can just tell from the photos that you have one amazingly wonderful set of kids!

Wow, what a ride! Congratulations to your daughter on her early graduation, and I'm sure your GradMoBirThersUation Day Party was an absolute blast! Just love the Crazy Bird cake!! And I'm glad you were able to turn to the Design Team Planner Set to keep your head (almost) together.

Not sure if my comment went through or not so sorry if this is a duplicate. Wonderful post! The kids stole the show as they should. You're daughter is gorgeous and your son so handsome (but of course right? good breeding and all that LOL!) I should have known your decorating would carry over to cakes. Love the different candles, numbers and birds - it looks so fun. Would love to come to your next soiree! Time flies, kids are getting older and yes Lisa.. you should be so proud! You done good mom! Hugs!
