Remember chalk boards? No more, their all
these white boards, and this is my rendition.
Both the M&Ms are 8th Graders this year, and they
have worked so hard this whole summer to be ready for it!

Good morning everyone.
  I sure hope that your week is off to a great start.  We were busy at work yesterday, so we won't go there.  lol...
  I am going to make this one a short one today as I didn't leave myself much time this morning, but first I have to wish my Mom a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  I made her a card, but she doesn't get to see it until she has it in hand.  (Sorry Mom, No sneak peeks this year!).
  Now onto my quick post.  I bet you thought that I had forgotten all about my August page in Greeting Farm Calender.  heehee... No, I was just debating on if I wanted to make August the back to school month or wait until September as that is when as kids we used to head back.  Well, wouldn't you know it.... The FFF challenge blog helped me once again to make that decision.  Yes, I have decided that August gets the theme and as over on the challenge blog this week the Farm Fresh Challenge is to make a school related project.  Now I know this isn't a 'Project, project' it is however overall a project as far as my all Greeting Farm Calender goes however.  lol... Did any of that make sense to you guys?  
  Well if you know me by now you know that I have an odd way of thinking sometimes.  That's ok as I am good with that. lol.... Speaking of knowing me I would love to welcome my two new followers.  Thanks so much for  joining, and I hope that you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy getting to know everyone and sharing this wonderful craft. 
  Ok guys, as you have probably noticed I did put a spot on my sidebar for all of those that want to have a chance to comment on my Blog-a-versary Candy. I don't know how you leave the post at the top and now that I look at how long it is, I really wouldn't want to.  hehee.. 
Have a wonderful day everyone.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your great comments. I just love reading each and everyone of them.
Hugs, Lisa G

Oh, wow, you've done it again Lisa and made the perfect calendar page! This is so cool looking, love the shelf of books and your dry erase board is spot on! I love the scene for August because even if they don't start until Sept. you are always spending August getting ready for school! Fantabulous project, Lisa! Enjoy your time with the M&M's before school starts! :)

Hi Lisa,
this is terrific! I love all the books and the images you chose are fabulous. They use dry-erase boards now? Wow, that's new. So I guess there are no more cleaning of the erasers after school anymore huh? lol!
Love ur calendar and it's perfect for the FFC challenge. Enjoy the moments with the M&Ms before you know it school will be here.
