A History Lesson

If you have never been to Greenfield Village, I encourage you to visit.  At our school it is traditional for the second grade class to visit at the end of the year.  The kids dress up in period clothing and experience a day learning in the one room school house.  That includes fetching firewood and water from the well outside.  They all enjoy the day and gain a better understanding of how blessed they are.  This thankfulness and humility is a lesson to be learned by all of us.

Tea Party papers gave this page an old fashioned appeal.  This time I used the soft lilacs that come with the collection.  Coupled with So Saffron polka dot paper the results are eye-catching.  Once again, Mod Podge was used to "glitter-fy" chipboard.  This time birds from So Tweet were sprinkled with Orchid glitter from our Fine Cosmo assortment.  I thought the owl was a perfect choice for such a studious boy.  The Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers from our current Occassions Mini catalog are only available through the end of the month. You can order yours 24/7 with the link on the leftOld Olive striped and Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon with a few buttons here and there finished the look.  One of my newest stamp sets is called Three Little Words.  Don't you just love the font?

I have updated the post below with color charts for your reference.  Thanks for spending time with me today.  It was nice of you to stop by!
