Happiness

I discovered another card site today....

This is the sketch:



And this is my take on the challenge.


It is super simple, but nice all the same.

For Blair's staff book

I asked the teachers to contribute pages for Blair's book. He is leaving our school to work at one closer to his home. I'll really miss his sense of humour.

All the staff members

My page. Later I inked the edges of the quote in the corner.

My latest creation

I was reading the newsletter from Bad Girls and one of the designers talked about a bulletin board she made.

I used a piece of 12 x 12 corrugated cardboard, 12 x 12 patterned paper, a small piece of thin cork board, and a few embellishments, I also added 3 tiny pegs at the bottom for other papers. The photo mat is square to accommodate a number of shapes and sizes, so that I can change the photo whenever I want.


Yes that is a funny picture, taken on the beach in England the year my mum died.

Gift for a teacher friend moving to another school


















This mini book was made for Blair with whom I've worked for the past 4 years.
Unfortunately all the pictures are a little blurry, but look good IRL.

Father's Day Post-It Note Holder


Thanks Dawn for this great idea.


The kids at school all made one for the important men in their lives, but I forgot to take a picture, so this is the example that I made while demonstrating it to them.
