Firstly, I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to all who stopped by to visit and to leave some really quite charming comments during the October Afternoon blog hop.

Secondly, the winner of the OA rubber charms prize pack is...

Congratulations, Jennifer!  (P.S. I just discovered your blog, and whoa, am I loving all of that color on your  layouts!  You're a girl after my own scrappy heart.) 

Thirdly, I would like to mention that even though my summer begins in just two weeks, it's still so farrrrrrrrrrrrrr awaaaaaaaaaaay.  I know, I know, I should just stop whining and suck it up.  Not everyone gets two months off from work.  That's why the teachers make the big bucks, I guess. :) 

Supplies:  Studio Calico May kit, Jenni Bowlin paint dabbers, and a funkload of October Afternoon labels.  

Actually, I'm not really taking the summer off.  I'll be taking an online course, and I'm really excited about that.  As much as I love teaching, sometimes I really do miss being a student.
