I can't believe that August is coming to a close; I especially can't believe that the start of a new school year is on the horizon! Not for me, though...one of the perks of being a retired teacher *grin*
Speaking of school...Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #455, where our wonderful Vicki is inspiring us with a school-themed photo. Your card/project doesn't have to be a school card; plenty of other elements to spark your creativity, be that colours, or shapes, or letters or... The choices are yours - just let us know what caught your eye.
If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see fabulous cards from Ros Crawford, who has been our marvelous GD this month, and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria. Please drop by their places and leave them some love.
While yours truly is not heading back into the classroom, two little loves-of-my-life are: my niece and nephew, into Grades 3 and 1, respectively. This growing up stuff is happening way toooo fast!
I decided to make bookmarks for them...and added a snippet of whimsy (or so I hope), in having the books rather precariously stacked, yet capable of balancing a vase of flowers. Just plain old fun...
NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to be selected as one of three winners at
Simply Create Too Challenge #141. THANK YOU!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend! We're at my mom's and will be visiting the kiddos tomorrow. Excited to deliver the bookmarks in person (and a book just 'might' be part of the package, too)!
