One Stitch At A Time... Graduation or Schools Out

WOW !!! Its the 6th month already before we know it it will be Christmas.. Time flies by doesnt it ?
This week at One Stitch At A Time we have a summer challenge for you..

Well the correct theme is Graduation or Schools Out

This week we are sponsored by Creative Craft World. Who are giving 1 Lucky winner a set of Letraset Promarkers

My DT card

This week i was super lucky. My creator to work with this week was Angela from Toucan Scraps. I chose to use her fantastic Rainbow Bumper paper pack which is available to buy here. One of these papers just shouted summer to me... So the cloud/ blue skies paper had to be used. Its fantastic and looks just like a photograph,to me.  Theres' 13 other papers in this pack too. All for $4 amazing value !!
(Dont forget you get a free colab pack if you spend $10 at Stitchy stores. For details of included items see my side bar or visit the store.)
This week i also got to work with (HRH Stitchyness) Stitchy and i used her fantastic Flip flops which is available here.

This week i made a Summer Journal...... A perfect way to recall the lazy days of summer when ... Schools out ;O)

I took a pre made journal then added Angelas' paper and Stitchys' Flip flops coloured in Promarkers. Of course i managed to use glossy accents and stickles on there too. The bunting was cut freehand. I used my cricut to get the word Summer and 2011. The flower for the bookmark was cut using my MS anywhere 'rose' punch and then i added some sunshine gems ;O)

I cant wait to stop by all your blogs and see your beautiful creations. Hopefully blogger will be nice to me this week and i will be able to leave comments instead of just being able to view your fantastic work..... Appologies if i havent managed to comment on your makes for this last week. I just cant understand why blogger isnt being nice to me,when it comes to leaving comments :O(    Hopefully this week it will be better....

Hugs Choccy xxx

Choccy, what a great idea for a kid to remember all they did on their summer vacation. Teacher's are always asking the kids when they come back what they did all summer...great job kiddo :)
