Some Goodbyes....

Well today is my son's last day of school...that's right, school's out for summer! He is so sad to say goodbye to his friends for 2 months. He really enjoys school and the new friends he's met, but I assured him there will be plenty of playdates!
His teacher is also leaving the school, to go teach somewhere else and he is sad about that. Here's the farewell/thank you card I made for her!

I hope she will like it, and wish her well at her new school!

On to another farewell....and a very sad one for me! I've had to make some hard decisions lately and sadly have to step down from a few design teams I've been a part of, one of them being The Town Scrapper. Its so hard balancing family, work and hobbies but want to thank Phebe for having me and the rest of the wonderful Scrapettes for their friendship and inspiration over the last little while. I will miss all of you but will still be visiting all of your blogs on a regular basis!

MUAH to everyone!

Card Details: Stamps: School Boy by High Hopes, Sentiment by Hero Arts. Paper: Beckett Expression, Bazzill, Imaginisce. Supplies: Copic markers, Circle Nesties, 3d pop dots, Candy Dots by Pebbles Inc.

    Bye, jolanda

  2. Awwwwww! This is so sweet! His teacher is going to love it! Fantastic colouring, perfect papers and layout! What's not to love? It's hard to believe it's the end of another school year! Don't forget to schedule yourself for a few "playdates"! Lol!:) Tracy

  4. Oh Krista!! This is fabulous!!! Poor little's hard saying good bye to friends!! I am thankful for our friendship and I'd be sad if I had to say goodbye to you!!!

    I soooo hear you are simplifying...I feel sooo much better after doing so myself last month!!!

  5. Hi Krista - don't worry your little guy will soon be enjoying the summer sun and then it'll be back to school before he knows it. I fully understand about the challenges we face when trying to balance life. I will miss on TTS loads and loads and loads and loads but will keep visiting your blog for my daily dose of inspiration. Hugs, Maria

  6. oh my goodness, i LOVE that card, with that adorable Imaginisce paper! so cute, chickadee!

    and, well, it's a known fact that even when stepping down from a design team, it's quite easy to keep up with some of the friendships already made. :) xo
