Dynamic Duos #2 {Happiest Birthday}


Saturday is here and that means a brand new challenge over at Dynamic Duos!  As this is the second week of the month, we are starting with a Subtle and Soft colour choice! Yes, we are using Pool Party again...I love that colour!  The "Dynamo" design team has created some wonderful projects to inspire you! make sure you visit their blogs to see their amazing projects.


I inked up my Apothecary Art set....and got to colouring! The background is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I added some So Saffron ribbon in a flag style off to the side. On a personal note, I found out yesterday that I am keeping my classroom at the same school! Hooray! My job was dependent upon enrollment so I breathed a huge sigh of relief that I get to stay for another year!!! Needless to say, I am thrilled!!

Be sure to check out this talented and lovely team!! I hope you get the chance to join in on the fun!
