School is out!!!!

To celebrate my favorite day of the year: Last Day of School
and the beginning of the No Schedule Season, I went back to the garage and married a boring cork board

to a leftover thingy....

and the results make me as happy as not having to get up early in the morning!

I remember those days when the kids were out of school. I too felt like celebrating! Love what you did with "the board". But nothing surprises me with the amazing Ms. "M"!

Take care, Sue

I wish you had a "sister" shop in Australia. Your creations always make me smile. I wish I enjoyed actually doing these craft transformations as much as I enjoy watching others (like yourselves) do them. Perhaps I am just the "shopper" have a fantastic summer holiday. (it is our winter over here, but quite mild compared to yours, not really cold at all) Michelle
