Today I have a super simple little project for ya- the simplest I've ever come up with! Do you ever look at your DP & aren't sure how you want to use it? Me- pretty much every time I pick some up :) This time it actually came to me like a flash. I had this super cute DP from Imaginisce called All Kinds of Happy & i asked myself, "Future Mrs. Depp, what could you do with this paper?" I had a birthday card to make for a little girl- but a card wasn't calling my name. Then I thought of making a game out of it! Concentration is the name!
I took my 2" (XL) circle punch & punched out around the happy birthday to create disks:
So, do ya want to see how to play??? GAME ON!!! You first...
Mix up the cards & put them in 4 rows of 5. (You'll notice that this paper is double sided so that makes it work even more perfectly!)
Now you pick 2 cards & turn them over.
I'll share how I'm gifting this next week---> same bat time, same bat channel! Hope this inspires you to take another look at your DP. You can find this paper & the coordinating stamps, paper, & accessories at the YMH Store.
Friends, you may not be seeing me for a while--- I have some news for ya. As you know, I teach 3rd grade. Well, I got a phone call from HR at my district letting me know that (due to low enrollment at my school) I'm being transferred to another school. Buuuuuuuuut... not just any school.... a HIGH SCHOOL!!! Because in addition to having a multiple subjects credential, I also have a single subject credential in Spanish. Since they needed a Spanish teacher & I was being displaced & had a Spanish teaching credential---> I was being sent to the High School. Have I taught High School before? No. Only what I needed for my credential (student teaching). I have taught elementary for 15 years so this will be a huge change for me. But I HAVE a job still & have to remember that. Tomorrow is my last day at the school I've been to for 10 years and I'm sad. I leave behind the best colleagues & friends I've ever known. I leave kiddos I've had for nearly 2 weeks. Monday I have to pack up my belongings, Tuesday the district movers will move my stuff to my new school and Wednesday I start at the HS. By the way, Back to School night is Thursday. We'll see how that goes! LOL! I have a job... I have a job... I have a job....
Anyhoo, thanks for peeking today.
