School's Almost Out....

Many are thinking...you are still in school!   Yes, we are.  We have LOTS of snow days and they are added to the end of the calendar.  Other schools in the area are already out, but we are not so lucky. 

This week has been busy for 2nd grade though.  Field trips, parties, field days, trying to stay cool......

I know my son is loving all the FUN they are having, but I can only imagine the anxiety of the teachers.....hot hyper kids...ugh!

To say goodbye for the year, I made Mason's teacher a card.



I used Recollections, Core'dinations and Echo Park {Playground} papers
Hello Kitty Greetings - card feature cut at {6.5"} in black
Because I would want to write on the inside of this card, I cut out the blackout feature to this cut in white and hand cut the apple on top off.  This way I could layer the white books on the inside and have a place to write.
I cut all the layers out with patterned paper and adhered them into place.
I used a sentiment from My Creative Time stamps {Just a Little Note to Say}
Added a bow of bakers twine from The Twinery to the stem of the apple.


For those who have the kids home already, I hope you are enjoying the summer.  We will be enjoying it really soon.
