More Time to Play!

Monday, June 4, 2012


Yep I'm officially off for the summer, and I actually got to sleep in for the first time in months!

Summer break is pure bliss for teachers. I'm so excited because I actually got to play in my craft room all day yesterday. I made tons of new projects. Here's a fun card for ya to start your Monday morning off with a smile.

Don'tcha just love that little birdie?

He's really an embellie for the "Smash" books, but I wanted to use him on my card instead. I also used some fun Nikki Sivils "Exit Here" woodgrain paper on the background of my card. I layered different paper and the birdie in the center. 

I'm also linking this up to some fun challenges that I have not played with in a while:

So what do you all have planned this summer? My summer "to do list" is growing longer and longer each day....(smile)!

P.S. - I've got a fun Twinery project for ya tomorrow!
