ScrapHappy June

A new month is a new color here at the rainbow scrap challenge.  So finish up the last of your pinks and pull out teal and turquoise.  Anything that is not quite blue and not quite green will work this month.  Think of warm Caribbean water.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Last Pink Saturday

It is hard to believe that May is almost over.  Even more so than usual, the end of the school year has kept me busy.  The fun is not quite over as Anna and I are off to Paris and Barcelona in just a few hours.  I'll be back late next Saturday, so I'll be sure to schedule a post for next Saturday before we head out to the airport.
I've got plenty of hexie diamonds to work on while sitting on planes, trains and busses.  Hopefully I'll be able to add some pink to this slowly growing collection.
How are your pinks coming along?  The linky party is below.  Please share with us all.  I'll try to check in as long as the wifi holds out.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Graduation Weekend

It is graduation weekend and  my sewing room has been turned into a guest bedroom once again.  Kurt's dad and sister have come for the weekend.  The ceremony was last night and I was able to go up with Anna while she got her diploma.  We had three teacher's children graduating this year and we were all there with them as they walk across the stage.  Anna was off to project graduation right after and is just now home again.  She just got back from science fair Thursday where she earned second place for her project modifying a 3-D printer to make cartilage.  She gets to name an asteroid!  Today though, I think that she will sleep.  I've got some hand sewing pulled out in case there is time.  Maybe while watching the royal wedding and drinking a bit of tea?    Just three more school days until summer vacation.  Not that anyone is counting.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Smells Like Roses

It's been a brutal week.  It went fast though, and the weekend snuck up on me.  The first week of AP testing is done.  Mine is on Monday, so I hope the kids will be ready.  I'll go in bright and early to make them pancakes before the big test.  Anna is off for science fair bright and first thing tomorrow morning.  She'll be back just in time for graduation next Friday.  Where has the time gone?
Still, even with all of that on the horizon, things are starting to calm down.  I was spending a lot of time working on switching my curriculum over to new textbooks next year, but there were a few funding hiccups, so all of that might not be necessary after all.  In a wait and see mode on that, sewing the day away sounds like a super plan.

I seem to have plenty of pinks to keep me busy for a while.  Having two girls means that pink in one of my big scrap bins.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Tickled Pink

Roll out the rose and pink, and new month has begun!
 Mari has posted directions for the new squared away block.  I'll post a link on the Squared away tab and here when the pdfs file for the tutorial is ready to go.
I finished my blocks earlier.  I was really happy with how the darker rose added nice contrast to the pink scraps.
