Many Thanks everyone

Huge thanks to all the people on FB who have been helping me sell, sell, sell this summer. This is my last week of sales (crafting items) and I am taking the last couple of weeks off before school starts. I am glad to have earned enough bank to make it possible to have a vacation next year.  Woo Hoo!

Mini calendars

Here's some cute little calendars that I made for handing out last year.  The top two make perfect sense because they are school theme and I hand them out at the job I work (paraprofessional at a local elementary school).  The bottom two, on the left is a cutie from Unity stamps, on the right is an adorable fox, I am not 100% sure but I want to say Darice.   Then again, not sure about that adorable fox stamp.  If you know, please tell me.

No bird can fly....

My parade

I thought this card was a little bit funny given all the downpour on the 4th of July parade.  But  seriously, I just love the Grumplings from Taylored Expressions.  They are TOO funny.  This card could be perfect for any number of occasions and not have to be literal for that rain on the recent national parade.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and enjoy something special.

Go ahead, WISH

Here's my card for the monotone challenge at Unity stamps this week.  I am using a great Dandelion stamp and a matching sentiment, well, I guess this sentiment could be used for anything but it seems to go perfectly with the dandelion.  Their contest is on their facebook group, Unity {show&tell}, just look in their photos section.

Hope  you had a wonderful 4th of July and will have a great weekend as most in the USA are having a 4 day weekend. Please be safe if you are out traveling.

Follow your Dreams

Happy July everyone! I can't believe we are on the second month of summer already.  Wow, it is flying by.  Instead of sleeping in and getting rest, I have come down with insomnia and I seem to be sleeping just a couple hours a night everyday.  What's with that?  Come the school year, I am going to be longing for this opportunity to sleep in!!

We are starting up a brand new contest today on the Your Scrapbook Place challenge blog, this month our wonderful sponsor is Paper Shelter.  This great image is called Hippie Chick.  I added a great sentiment to go with her, "Follow your dreams, Believe in yourself and Don't give up!"

Drop by the Your Scrapbook Place Challenge blog and share your latest creations with us.  You are allowed up to three entries per month to be in the drawing for the prize *although if you are using the sponsor's images, you can have an unlimited number of entries and  you get double entries into the drawing too!  Join in the fun.
