Some of the Creative Team members actually created sketches for our Sketch Fest at ScrapCity. This is Nessa's card sketch.
This is my card based on her sketch. I used some SEI paper that the Creative Team received from our sponsor, Beatriz. The "thanks" is a $1 acrylic stamp from Michael's. I embossed both panels with the swiss dots embossing folder in my Cuttlebug. The flowers are Petaloo, and I got those as a RAK from the wonderful Wendy! Just an easy, but very cute card. I love these colors. You can click on the card to see it larger.
My girls came home yesterday, and they told me that the name of their Junior High School is changing. The superintendent of our schools is retiring, and to honor him, they are renaming the school. I'm shocked at how angry this news made me. Renaming the school loses the consistency with the three schools (Elementary, Intermediate, and Junior High). They are all named after the town we live in. The school is now referred to as MJHS. The superintendent's last name begins with a B. I think it's same to assume that it will be referred to as BJHS. Uhm, that doesn't sound right, does it? However, what REALLY made me angry is the fact that the economy is in the toilet right now. Yet, the school district is going to find enough money to change signs, banners, get new letterhead, etc. Can you imagine what needs to change because the school's name is changing, and how much it's all going to cost? It's irresponsible to spend any money to make this change. I am so angry, but apparently the school board has already made the decision. Well, I won't be hesitating to let anyone and everyone know that I think this is wrong. I don't have anything personal against this man, and it says a lot about him that they want to honor him in a big way, but seriously. This is ridiculous!
I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
