Here is the bulletin board I did for the end of the school year. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I used the Stampin' Up! In Color 12 x 12 paper pack 12-14 for this project. All the colors went nicely with the background paper and color of the frame, I think.
I cut the crabs out at 3" from Create a Critter. I think the shells were cut at 3" as well, but since they are an accessory they cut out just right for the crab to hold.
I used my Gypsy, and I have many fonts. I can't remember which one I used right at the moment, but I'll look it up when I get back from New Orleans and let you know. :)
On one side of the sea shells was the number of days left of school. On the other, is a yellow layer that makes it look pretty. As each day ends, I removed a sea shell from a crab, turned it over and stapled it at the bottom with the sea weed.
You'll never know how happy I was to take that last number down! lol I loved my students this year for sure, but it will be so nice not to have to be "on" all day 5 days a week (and when I see them outside of school in the afternoons and weekends). I can relax a little and not have thoughts of lesson plans, tests/quizzes, missing homework, etc. Oh yeah, and I can clean my house and bake something yummy. I have time for Pinterest again! Wow! This is getting exciting thinking about it all. lol
I'm including this on D.L.ART's page for the SPLASH Challenge. The challenge implies anything "wet" so I think my bulletin board fits since the crabs are under the water. :)
