To you...


Hey all!  It's Saturday....already!  The weeks are flying by! We have already been out of school for about 3 weeks and we are plugging along.  This last week was soccer and tennis camp and next week starts T-ball.  The first day of school is going to be here in a flash at this rate.

So today I have a new card for Retro Sketches and then a little news to share.

I used the banner die from CSS to make the focal point.  I added in some wood buttons and twine and then a sentiment from PTI's Mini Blooms.

Here is this week's sketch...


I hope you can play along!  Stop over to the RS blog to see what the other girls have made up for today!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So the month of June marks 6 years of blogging for me.  I've decided it's time for a break.  June is going to be crazy with ball games and insane schedules so I'm thinking it's time to shut the door on this room for a little while.  I do have some fun stuff coming up in July, so I'll be back!  I hope you will come back and visit soon!  Thank you all for your visits and comments.  I really appreciate all the blogging friends I have made!  So many of you I am honored to call friends!

Hope you all have a great Memorial day weekend!  I will see you soon!
