Finally Get to Create

I finally had a chance to create after organizing my craft space.

This card gave me a chance to test the water and see if everything is within reach for me to use.

I almost pulled my back trying to get my paper cutter

...obviously it moved closer. 

Seriously I don't have time for that pain ;).

(stamps: Papertrey Ink Teach & Inspire/Background Basics Super Stripes  die:Avery Elle Dotted Borders)

This week at Papertrey Ink there's a fun technique to try.

hosted by Dawn

I don't know about you...but it seems like school just started and now I see the end rounding the corner.

I thought I'd start with a teacher appreciation I have something to give when school ends.

Blink, and it will be here. ;)

Thanks for stopping by~
