Even though high school doesn’t officially start until Tuesday,
I’ve already had my first taste of it this morning.
Jordan had to get up early to go to a student council meeting.
(she’s the president of ‘bruin crew’–the service based group at the high school)
She had to be there at 6:30 a.m.
I’m going to miss my quiet mornings, allowing me to sleep just a little longer.
But I guess I’m just gonna trade them in for quiet days with kids gone to school.
Means less distractions for me so I can focus on work . . . unless The Mentalist is on, that is. ;)
So how appropriate are these two amazing cards that Laura made?!
Pay close attention to those cards. Almost every element is from the This+That School kit.
Shall I provide the visual for comparison’s sake?
I think I shall.
What an awesome idea Laura!
Here’s what Laura has to say:
I had printed out some of the print files from the This & That: School kit for a layout I’m working on. I had wanted to use the pieces in place of patterned paper on my layout, and I had some leftover pieces that I didn’t end up using. So I decided to whip up a few quick “Back 2 School” cards. Because the pieces I had left over were smaller, I used them to create a fun border across my cards. I overlapped them as I adhered them, tucking them under my the red number strip of patterned paper to ground them in place. I also used one of the black ruled paper pieces to cut the “ABC” shape from. I’ve been holding onto the This & That kits for a while now, but I never got around to purchasing one of the wooden trays to use them on. I’m glad I got a little creative and found another way to put the print files to good use!
And now, for the randomly drawn winner of Becky Higgins’ fabulous Plastics Giveaway . . .
