Celebrating Summer

I'm officially going to celebrate summer as it's my son's first day off school and my daughter has been off for a couple of weeks. No more getting up early, quizzing for Spanish vocab or Algebra, no more calls from school, "mom, I forgot..." and no more "let's go!" in the morning. Whew! As Alice Cooper says, "School's Out For Summer!"

My older sister used to play Alice Cooper and he should've scared me as a kid, but he never really did...even though now I think "ew" when I see him perform. That's why I used the Muppet version of this song. Less blood and more cuteness.

Here's a card I made at a lss, The Paper Cottage, where I get all my new paper lines. This one is Crate Paper called Maggie Holmes Confetti and I love how well it all goes together.  The colors are soft and beautiful.

The second card took a wee bit of time. We hand cut all the banners and they were little! But I do like how it turned out. And the bird is so cute! The wood grain paper was some of the prettiest I've seen. I'm not a huge fan of using wood grain, no idea why, but I love this one. I do like when I see it on other people's projects, I just never buy it. It's behind the banner.

Happy Friday and Happy Summer!
p.s. if you love Paper Smooches, and who doesn't, you should check out their new release blog hop here! that baby chick, though!

  1. Both really cute and summery!! And what a fun way to celebrate! My younger one still have school and exams all the way till mid June. But he'd secured a summer job which starts shortly after school is out, so not much of a break in the 'getting up early to get him out the door' department! LOL


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
