Good morning! I decided to finish this easel card, although it isn't quite right... It sits a little bit slanted. I don't know whether that's because of the way I folded it, pasted it, or cut it! Guess it's the same either way.

I have mentioned before that I have 4 students graduating, so I am making cards for them that are more special than those I would usually give. These kids have been "mine" for 5 years, but I actually first worked with them when they were only in 4th grade. I'm really going to miss them.

The cap was cut from Locker Talk (cartridge) which has a lot of good school related images on it. I think I'll probably use it a lot when I'm scrapping my kids school years. The paper is some of the last from DCWV's Songbird, which I have loved. It is such good quality and so easy to work with. And besides, if you haven't already noticed, I love bright colors!

Time to start some laundry, then head upstairs. I've got lots of card ideas to work on... Hope I finish some. I tend to start several projects and leave them to finish up later! Not always a good idea.

Hope you are enjoying sunshine and flowers. Get outside and smell SPRING for me, please.

  1. Love your card. I thought high school for 33 years and recently retired but I still sub long term and short term but mainly for a wonderful group of TMI/autism class. I always shed a little tear at every graduation. They were my kids for years too...so I totally understand.

  4. I taught emotionally handicpped, autism, and learning disabled kids for 18 years. I loved every minute of it. I know what you mean by the long term connection. They become your own don't they?
