Happy Anniversary- Saleabrate!!
Well, hello there! I am so glad you popped in for a visit today! Things have been quite uneventful this week, which is perfect for spring break! I even managed to get a few scrapbooking pages finished using MDS!! But today is not about my current projects. Nope, today is all about my wonderful ability to procrastinate and then realize that I goofed again... In February, my stamp club made a card using the beautiful paper that was available for free during Saleabration...key word being WAS available...as in 'not available now that I'm getting around to posting this'... Sheesh! Have I mentioned lately how crazy things have been for me lately?!
So, today I am sharing the card we made at club that features the lovely, but no longer available, Sycamore Street DSP! It also has a very pretty ribbon that was also a free item during SAB... not that this helps you if you don't already have it...
I borrowed this layout from someone, but unfortunately, I do not remember who... I decided to use the postage stamp punch to make the fish tails on my banners, and really like the interesting edge!
If you are a follower and frequently read my posts, you know that I have been alluding to a very crazy few months. You also know that my Mom has not been feeling the best and that I also recently relocated my classroom to a new building. It was during this time of major stress that I realized that I needed to make some drastic changes to my life because I was becoming more unhappy with each passing day. So I made the HUGE decision to make this my last year of teaching at the preschool. I have turned in my notice and will officially be unemployed as of May 17th. While the initial thought of this scared me to no end, I must admit that in the past week I have found an inner peace that has not been present for me in a very long time. No, I don't know where I will be working next, or even what I will be doing, but I also know that God has a plan for me and He is guiding my steps. In the meantime, I will be crafting my little heart out and spending some much needed time with my family. I'm also letting those rusty wheels in my head spin and I have some really fun ideas floating around up there. Before I finish this post, I want to share something I found on Pinterest...
I hope you allow yourself the same! Happy crafting!
