Happy Monday!

I actually got quite a bit done over the weekend!  Two items I can't show you yet but I finally got to participate in another challenge!  If you haven't checked out Let's Scrap yet, you should!  My friend Melissa F. is on the DT and is hosting the current challenge.  It's a fun one too!!  Here is my layout:



{Story}  So I spent a year teaching in Guatemala during the 2005/06 school year.  I was the Elementary Music and Elementary and Secondary Art Teacher.  It was the most awesome experience ever and I miss it so much!  This particular photo was taken in December 2007 when I was able to go down for a friends wedding.  (I got to fly First Class.... thank you air miles!!!!!)  It was so much fun to walk down the halls and hear "MISS ELSNER!!!!!!"  Yes, they missed me.. and I missed them.  This photo is a group of girls that I just adore and would always follow me around and were so sweet.  I wish I could afford to go down more often!

{Materials}
Background CS - Making Memories CS
Patterned Paper - various lines by Cosmo Cricket
Buttons - stash
Letter stickers - Doodlebug
Chipboard letters - Scenic Route
Stitching

Thanks for swinging by!
