School's Out for Summer

The countdown to summer is here, 7 1/2 days left for my kiddos. It seems like the year flew by and I am still in denial that my youngest will be starting Kinder in the fall. I try to always take mental snap shots and try my best to remember all of the small things because they grow so fast. I wish I was better about keeping a journal or scrapbook, maybe that should be my summer project along with a million other things I would like to craft and organize.  What do you do to keep those memories?  I would love to hear from you.  I have always loved making Shutterfly books to get those pictures off the computer but I am very intrigued by Project Life too but haven't even started that.

Today I wanted to tell you about the latest challenge at  The Paper Shelter.  This time it is a little bit out of the normal comfort zone for most, we want to see those Shaped or Easel cards.  I had such a hard time with my card this time, well this was my third attempt and that is all I am going to say:)
I ended up using my Cameo to cut out the apple card shape which came from the Silhouette on line store.  The Cameo is another thing I need to learn more about for  sure.  I used my Sharpie  Paint pen to create the stitching and colored the little wooden scissors and apple with my Copics.  The paper is actually different journal cards and quotes that I pieced together from Pine Cone Press School Days collection.  I fussy cut cut my image Learning is Fun by The Paper Shelter.
Copics
Hair-E27 E47, E44, E42, E41
Skin- E11, E00, E000, R20

Love it! The apple shape is such a clever idea... I'm with you I really need to use my Silhouette more - at all would be an improvement, actually! I don't seem to get time to "learn it", even though I know it would save me time in the long run. Cute image and fab embellishments - great colours too, like I said, I love it :-) Donna xx
