MelJen's Challenge Time

Hello :) I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!

Today the children were to stay home as the teachers in our district were on strike. We knew there was a possibility that it may be called off and were advised to watch the news. Nothing was on the news at 11pm so I made plans to take them to a friends house in the morning.

Well, the joke was on me. We knocked, and knocked on the door and no one came. Must have slept in, we thought.
As we passed by the school in the rain we didn't  noticed anyone protesting....hmm I thought, is there school? I went to the grocery store and saw lots of children. Phew, so it is a home day......wrong!!

Four messages from the school asking if I knew the children weren't at school today. Apparently at 4:30 in the morning it was decided school would be on. Well, this may be shocking to know but since my children have been 8 months old I haven't seen 4:30 in the morning. Not once. So how on earth was I to know school was on??? Ugh.

I clearly didn't win 'mom of the year' as I took my kids to school at 11:30 am. However, it did give me time to do some crafting  :)  So always a bright side to things-lol

Imade this adorable card for the  MelJen's challenge blog. The theme is to use the colours from  the photo provided. Here is my card

I coloured the digi with my copic markers  (E50, E53, E31)and added the purple ribbon for contrast (still keeping within the colour palette)

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!


  1. Wow, what an adventure you had. Like you said though, at least you got some crafting in. :) I think the card is absolutely adorable, he is one of my favorite images. Thanks for playing with us at Meljen's Designs this week! Heh

  2. Laura, Your day certainly ended up with a bright spot! Your card is adorable. Thanks so much for entering our challenge over at Meljen's designs this week.
    (ps) I think we live close to each other because Friday our Public School teachers were suppose to strike but it ended up cancelled.

  3. Laura, your story is so funny! I would feel the same way! "How in the world would I have known??" Well, at least they made it for half the school day and you got some crafting time! Love your card and the way you used the color palette. Thanks for joining us this week! :)

  4. LOL! Such a funny story! I would have just kept the kids out and had a fun day.

    Gorgeous card! Awesome coloring and layout. Thank you for joining Meljen's Color Challenge this week.
