SC182 - Christmas in July

Here is a challenge from Splitcoast (#182).

Hanging Wall Organizer

Had to have one of these to put some miscellaneous papers and whatnot's in there for my craft room which is S-L-O-W-L-Y coming together. A couple more trips to Ikea should do it.

Summertime Tic-Tac-Toe

I've been noticing a few girls posting these and they look like fun.
So I whipped one up for my daughter last night as I have already heard "Mom, I don't know what to do!". The sweet sounds of summer...

Merci Roch

My husband has been feverishly getting the boat ready for sailing this week-end. We have a brand new sail which he needed Roch's help to install. Roch has been very generous with his time and efforts in helping Gord, much more than necessary frankly. So we are indebted and my husband asked me to make him a Thank you card to show our appreciation for his time (of course the card will accompany a bottle of Merlot, which happens to be the name of our boat)...

Card for the School Bus Driver

Here is a card I made for my daughter's schoolbus driver.
My daughter has been taking the same bus for 4 years now and the driver is always on time and always has a smile.

Popsicle Party Invitations

Well I've been busy today, with gifts, challenges and party invitations! My daughter is inviting 10 of her friends for a farewell to school pool party this week-end. We'll be bobbin' for apples, sliding on the water slides and splashing around the pool.
Oh yeah! They'll be making their own sundaes - what a sticky mess this is going to be!

MOJO42 Challenge

Here is a card that I incorporated with the teacher appreciation gift. Thank you Madame Begin!

Teacher's Appreciation Gift

A little package that I put together for my daughter's Grade 3 teacher, Madame Begin. Jade has a lot of love and affection for Madame Begin who took over from Madame Lamontagne who left just after Christmas for a 6-month tour of Europe.
I covered the clipboard, chipboard book and coaster post-it holder with paper that I found at Costco.

Flower pot with Rub ons

I haven't taken the time to play with the rub ons yet believe it or not.

Maxi have these great pots on sale (I think this one is at $3.74) and it just screamed for a rub on. My daughter made me pick the lovely brown color.

The flowers are from our beautiful hedge which is in full bloom right now.
