Other than the rigatoni mishap, I really loved this challenge! I was dazzled by what the designers were able to create with candy. I wished I could run around like a fool grabbing up candy in the candy shop.

The bird was drawn by a student's brother and I love this Project for allowing me to store little things like that. I had fun using a technology type of handwriting for my Smartboard day. I love this Project for giving me a place to play and experiment with techniques I could potentially use in my scrapbook.
I couldn't get a clear close-up picture of my collaboration day...it's part of the bag that came with my lunch from Chipotle. I cut out red paper and placed it between the lines so I would have a place to journal. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
Taking a closer look, this day was made with a card I bought on clearance at the book store I visited that day. Super cute and easy! I signed my name at the bottom. I doubt I have my signature documented anywhere and it's something very personal to each of us. But I had to photoshop it out to share here in case someone devious wanted to sell my autograph for money. It's probably worth a lot.
P.S. You can see Nerd Nest's week 20 here.

Shakespeare is a good kid so he decides to stick around and take care of his dad. They're both broke so they plant a vegetable garden to provide food for themselves. After all, Shakespeare's family has been farming since the Homestead Act. This was one of my favorite parts, just reading about them gardening and fixing up things around the farm.
The core of this story is Shakespeare trying to get his life in order while finding a way to care for his dad, and he is really good at thinking of silly solutions for a very complicated problem. At one point in the story Shakespeare decides to rob the bank with some old high school friends. It makes sense since the man who owns the bank used Emmett's senility against him to buy his Cessna for $20. But, you know, does robbing a bank really make sense?
Gregory Hill provides a lot of humor throughout the story, some of it dark. East of Denver is a good summer read for a few laughs and some pie in the sky moments.

First I sprayed my paper with Tim Holtz alcohol ink (it's called Sail Boat Blue). Then I flicked it with some watercolor paint. I decided slinging paint is fun! I also used my watercolor paint to add some flair to the snips & snails & puppy dog tails badge I cut out of some patterned paper:Shazza for sending me the patterned paper by Basic Grey! I used only 1 sheet of paper on both pages by matting the pictures on the left and using the remaining strips for the border only on the right. Bet you couldn't tell!

The best part was getting her more socialized around different people and dogs. I think it really helped her.
P.S. I just realized Caprica graduated on the exact same day last year!
