Oh yeah, Back to School! That's where I've been - getting ready for the kids! Did 2 large bulletin boards and helped the librarian with hers. Then it  was clean and put my office/classroom back in place. Paperwork, lesson plans, meetings, and lots of etc. Oh and then we (DH  and me) gutted the kitchen. He has the cabinets  in but still waiting on the sink/counter. It's been 3 weeks, how long do you wait for a sink/counter to be delivered? Getting anxious to get it done, floor in and just look at it and not cook!

Think I'll give this card to my new principal.
She has really put in some time acclimating
to her new building and getting to know all of us.
but you didn't expect that - did ya?!?
Love making slider cards, just haven't done it for quite some time
so had to dust off my engineering degree and get everything to work.
Toot is on Split Coast if you want to give it a try.

What a fabulous card for back to school and the new principal! I haven't done a slider in awhile too, maybe next weekend! :) So glad you took some time out of the business of the beginning of the school year and remodeling the kitchen to create such a fabulous card! Keep'em comin'!!
Aloha, KL

Kimmie should be SO jealous! I've seen your amazing kitchen before she has! I still can't get over the change in the whole room. So very bright and beautiful!!! Can't wait to see it after the counters and floors are in! So...who the heck is your new principal? He/she? will love getting a nice card from you! And a slider, at that! Thanks for sharing, dear friend.
