Thanks a Bunch {and Collin's Recital}

So..I quite often buy patterned paper, but don't use it in mass.  For Collin and Marcel's teachers, I decided I needed to use up some of my patterned paper for their teacher card sets. The card sets have eight different cards (2 each of the following):  thank you, sympathy, birthday and thinking of you. This card is one of the thank you cards.  I used eight different sheets of patterned paper to create a colorful background.  The cards were then finished off with Reverse Confetti flowers and sentiment.  Love that RC set.  I'm pleased to be using up some of my patterned paper!

I had a bit of time this weekend to catch up with some of my Project Life layouts.  Still in love with that app.  Collin had his recital a few weeks ago at a local restaurant. We were able to enjoy a glass of wine/beer as about 20 different children performed. Great way to spend the afternoon!  We are so blessed to have our family close by to support our children.
