Happy Sunday, peeps! Thank you to all who commented on my shingles dilemma....I am still in the throes of it, but faring well. The most frustrating part is that the worst areas are on my right hand, and of course, I am right-handed! I can still do most things, but I do have to ask John to open things for me because I just can't grasp enough to do that! But I am managing the rest of it okay!
Today Claire has our Paper Players challenge, and it's always a fun one! I am sure you can come up with some sweet ideas....I like the scrabble tiles Nance used for our inspiration photo--that would be a cool theme!
If you're like me, you take lots of photos and they sit on your phone or in your photo program and nothing ever gets done with them! So I printed out a small one from the first day of school, and I made a little photo frame for Dana to sit on her desk. So here we go:
The chalkboard portion is made from some retired SU chalk paper from a couple years back; the wooden "frame" is from the Wood Textures DSP stack; these cute little puffy embellishments I have had forever and were perfect for the theme; and the vertical Wild Wasabi piece was embossed with a cute little Darice ruler folder:
The sentiments are from a really "vintage" Cornish Heritage Farms set, I believe it was from around 2007 or 2008, called Making the Grade, stamped in white craft ink:
And I mounted the whole shebang on a piece of cardboard backing from a pack of DSP, and I cut an easel using a Tim Holtz Small Easel die:
For my layout, I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch #303, and since my stamps were from 2008, I am entering this at the Retro Rubber Challenge #70!
I hope you'll play along with us this week and share your creations at the Paper Players blog! We can't wait to see them! And be sure to check out the designers' creations as well!
Speaking of back to school, one morning while waiting for the bus, Cassidy found a slug on a piece of fungus growing on the back of one of our pine trees, so everybody had to look at it, even little Jackie:
They even found a baby one! Despite it's "slug-ness", it is kinda cute!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
