Recess Riley


Happy Weekend! It is absolutely gorgeous here in Tennessee today. I did all my "have to do" stuff yesterday so today is just going to be fun! I've already been in the craft room for a while this morning and later I am going to meet some friends for lunch and some shopping. On the Riley and Company challenge blog this week was to create something school related. I was having lunch with my nephew the other day at his school and he was ranking his favorite things about his school day. Recess made the top spot followed closely by lunch, so I used that for my inspiration. I chose to use Bouncy Ball Riley, coloring three images and cutting them out. Two of them are just adhered on top of each other and offset a little but the front one was added with some thick foam squares. The hopscotch paper is from DCWV and reminded me of the black top area of a playground. As I was sorting through a box last week and found those little bottle cap letters, they have been around a while so I don't remember where they came from.

Have a great weekend!

That is cute and oh so clever! I remember watching Romper Room when I was a kid and I wanted one of those bouncy balls so desperately! Then when I was an adult I got one for my kids and they didn't play with it! :) Very neat little card.
