Teachers Rule

Well, Mr. B is in the final countdown of Kindergarten.  I think we're down to 14 school days left. (Gulp!)
I thought it was a good time to come up with a teacher card idea, for end of the year thank-yous.  I used In The Month of August, along with Fanfare patterned paper.  The cardstock is Sky, and Pacifica.

This card is completely scraplifted from one of my favorite cardmakers, Julie Campbell.  I am so thankful that we have become friends online, and worked together from time to time.  She recently achieved one of her DREAMS, becoming one of the newest Go To Gals at Paper Crafts magazine! I was over the MOON thrilled for her!  The card I created is based on one of her cards featured in Paper Crafts Card Style special issue that came out last year.  (It's on page 21, if you happen to have the issue at home!)  Julie's card featured a bubble gum machine in the circle, and lots of repeating circles throughout the card.  And I LOVED the way she put the pearls along her rounded corner.  So THANK YOU, sweet Julie, for the fabulous inspiration!! Getting ideas from other cardmakers is a great way to become a more accomplished cardmaker, copying ideas from those you admire.  Plus it can be a great motivation to get some projects DONE!!! If you post your work online, just be sure to give credit where credit is due!

If you'd like to scraplift my card that I scraplifted from Julie, LOL, post it online and leave a link in the comments! I'd love to see what you create! :)
