Funny Story

Okay I have a funny story to share. The speech teacher at work keeps commenting on my classroom door wreaths this year.. Saying she is waiting for one. Well her room just got moved to the old music room and she is having a room warming party with her famous bean dip and snacks on Black Friday after our in-service. She made up invitations today for the staff and sent them out and it said nothing is needed but your presence unless you are .... my name.. she would of course welcome some wreaths for her classroom door.. So my weekend project is born. Off to get a wreath base tomorrow. That will determine the size of the largest rosettes. I have some "school themed" paper here that I will use with some solids and I am thinking a school themed wreath with the words speech welded hanging in the middle. Since we are a pre-k, k building I am thinking alphabet letters for the florets center embellishments. Lets see where my idea takes me..

No project from scrapping last night. I had a layout set to put together but my two good friends called and wanted help making baby shower invitations with a teapot flair ( Alice in Wonderland) so I spent the night cutting the shapes for them and showing them how to distress the invite parts with Tim Holts vintage photo ink.. They are gonna look unique. You pull tea bags out of the pot (tags cut tags bags, boxes and more) to get the shower invitation information. Nothing uniform about the patterns used on the teapots so they are all unique for the uniform solid base and teabag tags having from the pot that pull them all together in the color palate.
