Welcome back for another great challenge! Today is my last work day before students come tomorrow. We'll see how this goes. I actually get my students from last year and loop up with them to the next grade. I've never done this before, so I'm a little nervous. At least I know exactly where we left off and what they should already know! I did have a nightmare though and dreamed that when they showed up, they were high schoolers! Yikes! I am not that brave to teach the older kids...really hope that that doesn't happen!
Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Boutique. Sally Ann is offering 10 free digi images! WOW!
We have a great sketch to follow from Sweet Sketch Wednesday so jump on over and play along!
This image really caught my attention! It's called Cheeky Cat and Spider. I loved it right away. I used my Copics (RV11, W7, W5, W9, Y13, YR04, R08, and R29) to color it. The DP came from a pack of paper that I bought at Wal-Mart a long time ago. The cardstock is from DCWV The Shimmer Stack. The green and orange ribbon and buttons also came in the same pack. The spotted ribbon was bought at Michael's. The brads are from Hobby Lobby. I used my Plantin SchoolBook cartridge from my Cricut to cut the ovals. I also used Glossy Accents on the eyes of the cat, spider, and pumpkin.
Well, tomorrow is our first day of school and I am going to be busy. I am teaching 2nd grade this year...never taught 2nd, so I'm a little nervous. I have taught 1st grade for the last 5 years and I get to take my class from last year, so at least there won't be too much time taken to have to get to know my students, I will be able to hit the ground running. Wish me luck!
