Happy is PRIMARY!

I love bright, vibrant colors! And although primary colors usually have people thinking about school, I am HAPPY to be OUT of school for the next couple of months!

This cute little image of the sailboat is by Meljen Designs. It just makes me smile! And the sentiment by TLC Creations is perfect! Both are digital images. I colored the sailboat with Copic markers. The pennant is made with Spellbinders die cuts.

Today I start my summer activity (besides stamping!). My husband and I will be in a Crane River Theater Company show called "Into the Woods." It has all the fairy tale characters that people recognize: Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and many more - and a Witch, of course! I will be playing Cinderella's real mother (a spirit in a tree) and also Little Red's Granny, who gets eaten by the wolf. It is not a children's show, but is definitely fun. Our first rehearsal is today - seven hours worth! Going to be a long afternoon/evening!

I hope you are doing something this summer that you love and that makes you happy!
