Make It Monday XMAS graphic

Welcome to Make It Monday! We are celebrating Christmas in July today. You may have arrived from Connie’s site where she is helping us plan a merry little Christmas Advent activity banner. Just a reminder that today is the last day of the FLASH SALE on the Christmas in July Creative Christmas Bundle sale. You’ll find Connie’s Banner instructions in that bundle plus much more. Click here to check it out.

She gave a carnation to a Grade 7 student who in turn gave her a pencil. It is a sweet “passing of the baton” ceremony that we do. SOOOO much better than some trumped up Kindergarten “graduation” ceremony!

The last day of school meant saying goodbye and thank you to several teachers and – in good paper crafting fashion – I made cards for the occasion. Continue reading »

June 2015 Gossamer Blue Kits

Posted on

Check out what was in my Gossamer Blue box for June!

As always, any and all layouts made from this month’s kits will be posted to my Flickr Gallery.

I am heading off soon for a ScrapHappy Reunion in Scottsdale AZ (only a mild 43C right now – yikes!) and will be taking this kit plus some of my Gossamer Blue stash with me. Hopefully we get some scrapping done! LOL! I have heard talk of Prickly Pear Margaritas though so … anything could happen!
