Not much paper crafting this summer.  Did a lot of sewing projects including flag dresses for my granit.  First time I used piping for the seams - I like that contrast.

Grafiti journals - both masked off with little bits of blue painter's tape and then used fabric paints of various kinds.  Top one used simplyspray fabric sprays - kids loved using these - nontoxic , great colors.  Bottom one was done with fabric markers.  Kids also used foam letters to mask off their names on these little canvas journals that I found at Oriental Trading.  I am going to use the same technique with the simplyspray and some Cricut cut vinyl to do shirts with the grandkids this summer.  Happy Crafting!

Made two retirement scrapbooks with tributes from many of the teaching colleagues of these two retirees.  They appreciated them.  Started with a Smash Book (a bound page of varied scrapbook papers) and then embellished most pages and entries.   The charms are made with printable shrinky drinks and really fun.

Glass Block - etched with Armour Etch and Cricut cuts.. (SCAL)

Anaya Ruth should arrive most any day now.  Wanted to have her night light ready for her.  This isn't the ribbon that will be on it when given - it is shedding sparkle everywhere!!!!
