Ahhhhhh……it’s official! We’re on summer break!
Yesterday was just a short awards ceremony for the 8th graders in the morning, and then we were done. Cannot believe that my little girl is now a freshman…….and that my boy is a senior. I’m both nervous and excited for what this next year will bring. But for now, we’re going to enjoy the summer.
Nik and her friend Hailey were quite in the mood to celebrate. We went out to lunch and then cranked up some music on the back porch. The girls went crazy with DIY sidewalk paint they made together. Boy, it did my heart some good to laugh like that.
Congratulations, girls! Here’s to the class of 2016!
Besides being the last day of school, yesterday was also a crafty day. I got to do some playing in my scraproom, just for fun. I gave myself a little challenge……to use a paper pad that I’ve been neglecting, and some stamps that have been gathering dust. Today is National Best Friends Day. So what better than a sweet friends card?
Do you all recognize this paper? It’s from the Basic Grey Oliver 6×6 pad. I chose three prints, and ended up making three cards. Not bad from three little papers, huh?
The flowers and leaves are from an older Stampin’Up set called Best Blossoms. The friends sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly. I added in my favorite kraft cardstock and some scrap burlap. Edged everything with white paint for a bit of a shabby look.
I also made a couple more owl friends. And these little guys are looking for a new home. You can find them in my Etsy if you’d like them to come roost with you.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!
