Hi all! It's Sunday, and that means it's Paper Players time! Claire is our hostess and she is channeling all those years of being a teacher with these fun "back to school" colors:
I knew exactly what I was going to use when I saw the colors! I had been given these cool diecut borders from my sweet friend Linda years ago, and they have been shuffled around in my craft room ever since.....you can see how "vintage" they look; a bit tattered and wrinkled (just like me!):
But I used them anyway, pairing them with some DSP that was also gifted to me by my friend Martha! Perfect for the challenge! For my focal point, I created a little slate with some retired SU chalkboard paper, stamping a Papertrey sentiment in white ink, letting it dry thoroughly, then adding the apple image from the same set (Fruit Fusion: Apple Mini). I created the frame with some Crumb Cake cardstock and the Hardwood background stamp:
I smudged just a wee little bit of white ink around the edges to make it look chalky! A couple of candy dots finished it off!
I hope you'll play with us this week...not all the designers chose the back-to-school theme for their colors...you must see them, they're amazing:
The garden is keeping us busy; Cassidy was helping me snap beans after our afternoon swim..."snip snip SNAP"...and she found one that looked like a bird:
and she said this one was the curl "in the middle of her forehead" just like the little girl who was horrid!
Enjoy your day---stay cool!
