Friday

Happy Friday!

My last day of school.  I thought it would never arrive.  This year I just completed my 23rd year in teaching, and I have to say it has been my most difficult.  I am VERY thankful that I have some time to regroup, and refocus.  I  love what I do  more than anything but WOW do I need a break!

On to other things now!! This is the last day of my 2 page layout week and I have to say I saved my favorite for last.  For this layout I used my photos of Jack playing in the sprinkler last summer.  Running in the sprinkler was his favorite thing to do at night and I LOVED seeing him so happy!  I thought the Bella Blvd. Sunshine and Happiness was the perfect collection for these photos.

supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper- bella blvd.
die cuts- silhouette

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  I will be back on Monday with a new project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Great shots of Jack, I use to love playing in the sprinkler too when I was his age, nothing like water to make for a fun time! So glad you're getting a summer break, I hope you get to relax some! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
