Yellow challenge #3

The 3rd weekly challenge for the month is to use the color yellow in an unusual way...

I made this for one of the girls teachers. I'll put fresh flowers in it, either red, white or yellow ones. I saw this on a florists blog, and knew I wanted to make one :)

1 cylinder vase
about 50 yellow pencils
glue gun and glue sticks

This was another Dollar Store project for me- the pencils, ribbon and vase were all dollar store bargains :) I just glued the pencils around the vase and tied a ribbon around all of them. Simple and easy!

Sunshiny yellow

Color my world challenge #2: make a craft using yellow

Here is my craft, a cheery, bright card- I love the color combo :)

Wishing you all a bright and sunshiny weekend!! Its supposed to be a sunny one here in the Pacific NW- thank you, LORD! We need some sun :) and just in time for me and my sweeties ten year anniversary get-away! Ahhhh, a much needed break, and I plan to enjoy it to the fullest! Even if it IS only one night :)

This is the day that The Lord has made, let us rejoice and be GLAD in it!

STAR of the week!!

Paige is the star of the week in her Kindergarten class... she's so proud! Part of her privileges as star of the week includes making a poster about herself and sharing it with her class. We had a lot of fun making this one together. She chose everything on it, from the pictures to the colors :) I think I have a future scrapbooker!

She also gets to be the head of the line every day this week, and lead the class in the pledge of allegience... she sure feels special :)

I love watching her blossom at school- she's had so much fun learning and meeting new people. Paige used to be our shy girl, but not any more!

P.S. Paige wanted me to add that she gets to be the teachers special helper this week, too :)

A new month....

..... a new color! Its April, and that means its time for a new color for the Color My World challenge, with Karen. And this months color is yellow :)

the first weekly challenge is a collage of my favorite yellow things. Here's mine:

There's nothing like a handful of dandelions from your childs sweaty fist :)
Fresh corn on the cob from the garden... so sweet and juicy!
Freshly squeezed, icy cold lemonade, yummmm!
Yellow purses... I've been wanting one for a couple of years now. Maybe this summer!
