Monday Manic

So, I'm a little late posting this... by a month. I participated in Ladybug Fanatic's Monday Manic Challenge. Her first one was to use Melon Mambo to create a birthday card. Little did she know it was for her!

I just love the bright fun colors featured in the Kaleidoscope DSP. The You Rock! sentiment comes from Just Jawing SS.

Easter cards

I usually don't make cards for Easter, but this year I gave my two students aides little Easter baskets and they needed a card to identify the baskets. I haven't used the Animal Cracker stamp set before, but the bunny and chick were perfect for the little 3x3 cards I had in mind. Oh, and the Martha Stewart Scoring Guide makes evelopes a breeze!

New Hall Pass

I have had problems with my hall passes disappearing. Whether taken to add to a collection or left in the bathrooms, I just can't seem to keep one. I needed to make one that wouldn't be easily taken or left somewhere. As I've mentioned before, I am part of the Art Club when I have time to participate. One of their recent projects was to decorate a styrofoam head. The students have come up with some amazing works of art. The styrofoam allows them to cut into and add components to their heads. I wanted to create one, and once I noticed the head already had a hole.... I thought it would make an awesome hall pass. I found a couple of nerd magazines (Discover, Science Illustrated) that were devoted to Einstein and used these images to cover my head. They even had two large images of his face that I was able to combine. I painted a dowel rod and then graffitied my last name all over it. I must say, I now have the coolest/creepiest hall passes in school. My students love it!

Blog Candy

I was so suprised when Jenn announced that I had won her blog candy. I anxiously awaited my booty and just had to sit down and create something as soon as I received my package. I tried out a card style I haven't attempted before, a gate-fold card, and it turned out nicely. It ended up being a little boy's birthday card.

A new post.... really!

So, I've finally pulled my pictures off of my camera, where they've sat neglected since way before my last post. I've dusted them off (figuratively) and readied them for posting. Since I have a hard time remembering to post, I'm going to try saving them to post automatically for me this week. Bear with me if it doesn't work. Look for the new posts beginning Monday morning.
