Summer's End...

Well, only a few more weeks remain until I head back to school for the year. I'm excited to start the school year again with the same group of amazing kiddos. I'm lucky to be looping for the first time in my teaching career.

I've been busy soaking up the last bits of my summer and have been stamping too. Over my vacation a few weeks ago, I stamped and colored tons of images so I'm madly trying to pair them up with the perfect card layouts. I don't usually work that way. It seems a little backward in my mind, so it's been a bit difficult. I prefer to pick papers then pull colors for my images from the paper.
I'd like to share one card I finished today. I recently purchased a few stamps from a former OBP team member who recently started selling her own adorable stamps ( and with her new August release just the other week, I thought I had better get this stamp inked before the new stamps arrive in my mailbox. This is Swimming Lucy...Isn't she cute? I also used WoodwareUSA's sentiment set: Mixed Greetings
I totally used scraps for this creation!!!

PS...I've got some great news to share too... I received an email today stating that I am one of the semifinalists in the Design Team search for Heartfelt Creations! I'm so excited! I will be receiving some stamps that aren't released yet and I am to create two items with them, then email them the pictures...and we'll see if I make it to the finals! Wish me luck!
