Sending Love

I am working frantically to get a photo album done for my son's band teacher. She has taught band at the middle school for 12 years and taught for over 20 total. She is leaving the classroom at the end of the year to work in the district office. My daughter had her as a teacher for three years before heading to high school.

I have collected as many photos as I could from the over the years of the kids, the concerts, the trips, etc. to scrapbook as a going away gift to her. I kept thinking I had lots of time to finish it but just realized this weekend that the final concert is on the 20th so I have got to quit procrastinating! The pages are pretty simple because they are so filled with pictures but it still takes time! Needless to say, I haven't been working on cards this week.

But, I decided to take a quick break this morning to make a card for the color challenge. The colors were Sky Blue, Ruby Red, and Pumpkin Pie. Those colors sounded perfect for one of my favorite Friendly Kritters images and I think they worked out well. Here is my finished card:


Cornish Heritage Farms Stamps:
-Polka Dot Backgrounder
-Bunny Presents (Friendly Kritters)
-sentiment from Silhouette Blooms II (Kim Hughes)

Paper:
-Georgia Pacific white
-Iced Teal, Desert Coral Dark, Blush Red Dark

Ink:
-Adirondack Aqua & pitch black dye ink by Ranger
-Copic Markers

Accessories:

Tools:
-Nestabilities by Spellbinder
-scallop edge punch-Martha Stewart
-Sponge

I hope to finish the album tonight. I all ready have tomorrows project done...it's our second layout challenge. Check back and see what the Designers come up with!

Adorable, adorable, adorable. I love everything about this--the layout, that cute bunny, the scallops. Must get myself a MS scallop edger.
