It's almost Time....

This week it's "School Daze" at The Paper Players Challenge.  I can't believe the school year is almost upon us again.  Ya Know - it's one strange profession - you close EVERYTHING down for two/three months (depending on where you live) and then you start EVERYTHING back up again.  I'm always excited to get back though - it's good to see the kids again and to see how they've changed in that short amount of time.

I had to go into some retired paper for an appropriate background - and when I found the die-cut "message" - I thought this would be a perfect card for one of my friends who retired in the spring and won't be starting up again in couple of weeks.

I'm spending this week in Banff - my husband has a conference - and will enjoy the final bit of relaxing before my head starts swimming with school start up again.

I hope you have a fantastic day - not filled with too many plans yet.  Thanks for stopping by!
