May 16

Today's Inspiration Challenge comes from Papyrus Candles. I knew I wanted to use the yellow candle, and decided right away that the Blooming Beautiful Bouquet could work well. I've embossed everything in black...I'm not exactly sure why except that it makes it bolder. I wanted to keep the vase white because I usually use clear or white vases myself. I'm not sure about the stark white around the outside of it, but I didn't want to muck about with it and mess it up!!! I've also used Wednesday's Sketch Challenge again. I'm not really a yellow person, but I'm happy with the way this turned out.

I did succeed in finding Dinosaur Bones yesterday...and no I wasn't making soup with them. LOL. We have a Canada Day Week at our school...thanks to the Canamaniac Amy Barry!!!! We have contests and prizes all week. Our Canada Day Assembly has been gradually growing bigger until, for the second year, we're hosting a Pancake Breakfast and I have the students performing various Canadian folksongs and such. This year one small idea, which has EXPLODED into a major production, is the reciting of Robert Heidbreder's "Drumheller Dinosaur Dance". I'm doing it with black light....(I hope) it's going to be SO COOL!!!!......so, that's the reason I needed some dinosaur bones. LOL.

Well, I'm off to the garden before it gets too too hot. I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for dropping by. - Happy Stampin' -Joan
