End of school thank you

Another school year completed. It went really fast this year and I don't see it slowing down any more. I have much admiration for our teachers, they have so little time, and yet they get the kids to learn so much. we had wonderful teachers this year. I thought i'd post the card (inspired by Lisa Johnson's pocket card)that we gave to each teacher, with a nice gift card envelope tucked in behind.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Fabulous blue and green

Happy Friday! Thought I'd post a couple more layouts using the kit from Scrap Attack! I love blue and green together, so when i saw these papers i knew they were going together somehow. Then saw the cork buttons from Pink Paislee and it all came together. The green polka dot is October Afternoon. You can see the list of supplies here.

And I was able to get some clouds out of scraps, so here is the second page i did using the same color combo.

Thanks for looking!

Using some Pink Paislee today

Happy Thursday!

I'm posting some of my design team work from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking today. I was given a kit with lots of Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage goodies. I'll be posting a couple pages every few days so be sure to come back and take a look! All the supplies are listed in the SAS store gallery.

This came together pretty quickly. The Prima flower spray made it easy to frame the picture and then i just added some layering. I have always loved tulle - this is from Bazzill and it made gorgeous ruffled flowers. Come back tomorrow for another way to use it.

The next page uses some October Afternoon polka dot Fly A Kite in the background,it was fun to add a little doodling around the edge of the hand cut scallops.

NSD crop pages

Last weekend was National Scrapbooking Day, and i participated in a crop at Scrap Attack. They have great challenges going on all the time, if you're looking for inspiration, please check it out! Next week we're starting a new SSU - an online scrapbooking class for designing pages! Hope you can stop by!

The layout below was a color challenge, olive green and light blue, and also using the word "Enough". i tore some circle flowers and punched a border.

This layout was done using a list of ingredients - i had buttons, cardstock, chipboard, stacked title, and hand journaling.

i inked the chipboard flower with a cats eye, then embossed with yellow embossing powder.

This was a challenge to use a punch, hearts, yellow, and cardstock. See the hearts?

And finally here's one i think turned out very fun. DeAnne buried herself in the nwe sand in the sandbox. In this challenge i needed to use at least four different manufacturers.

thanks for looking!!!
