One of our school secretaries is retiring the end of March. The committee decided to do a 8 X 8 scrapbook for her. I got a nice album and handed out pretty papers that will match each other when all assembled.. I have been thinking about what I would do and this morning it came to me. We have a school song called the Rodgers Rainbow Children.. I used that as my basis for the scrapbook page. The rainbow and clouds are from Create-a-Critter and the pot of gold is from Paper Doll Dress Up.
I definitely over colored this little bunny trying to blend the colors. It is all a learning process since I am teaching myself to use copics from watching tutorials I find online. I used D'vine swirls and Forest Branches cuddlebug folders and the Martha Stewart icicle punch.

Okay I worked on more flowers tonight for the table arrangements.. Got stressed when my daughter called from college and said she had a car accident.. Good news nobody hurt. The car can be fixed (hopefully) and all will be fine. You have to look at the big picture. I am so proud that she handled everything so well by herself since I am almost 2 hours away. ( I was ready to jump in the car and start driving)

Not a lot of crafting this week.. I did complete 3 scrapbook pages that are mostly about the pictures using the pretty paper as backdrop..

Okay I got this green Bo Bunny paper and matching stickers at CKC last summer. After finishing the layout I have to be honest I don't like it. Too much red and glitter.. but I rarely take anything apart I just accept that at the time that is what I was feeling. The tree and present were cut using the free Christmas cart on the gypsy and the wording is the gypsy font.. The second page is also Bo Bunny paper from last summer.. My kiddies for me a Dyson canister for Christmas.. YEAH boy does it suck up the dog hair. I had a small Dyson ball but I wanted something with all the attachments. I have one more page to scrap and my Christmas photos will be done.

Okay I have been a little off for a few weeks now with some unresolved issues.. I think it is harder cause I realize HOW much I miss my really good friend that passed away in November cause I talked with her EVERY night and now I have nobody to blow off steam too. Any how I try to craft to relax and sometimes I go to happy hour with a few girls from work so tonight to cheer myself up I made 4 cards using the gypsy to plan a happy hour of girl talk. The cocktail glass is from the gypsy smiley card with a wobble on it. Cuddlebug Swiss dots with a random stamp from my collection. The inside is cut from Designers Calendar and All Mixed Up.
