Polka Dot Parade

After a busy week, I'm here to share a card with you for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.

Here are the DEEtails:

I started with some white card stock and adhered punched circles in an assortment of colors (Calypso Coral, Perfect Plum, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive). Then I added the Happy Birthday banner, stamped with the sentiment from SU!'s Bring On The Cake and an Island Indigo daisy.

If you're interested in the first week of school, here's a quick recap:
  • Our school system was closed on the first day of school, while our buildings were inspected for damage after Hurricane Irene.
  • We were featured on the front page of our local paper, The Maryland Independent on Wednesday with photos from the first day of school.
  • Although we didn't have any on the first day, we had a few kiddos crying throughout the week.
  • On Wednesday, we found a hummingbird flying around in our Activity Room!
  • On Thursday, one of our kindergarteners fell off the monkey bars and broke his arm!
I think that's all the excitement I can take for a single week! Yikes! I'm glad we have the long weekend to recover!


  1. You manage to get every inspiration challenge spot-on. Soooo cute!

  2. I love the polka-dots paired with that sentiment!
