Whiff of Joy August.

Can you believe we are over half way through August already! My gosh this year is just flying by! Bailey started Lacrosse practice yesterday and she LOVED it! Everyone told her she did really well for just starting and she seems really excited. She is going to have a busy year this year. She is in 8th grade, which means they are the top dogs at the Middle School LOL  I keep telling her.. Not for long! So, they will have some fun things to do this year. One of them is going to Disney with the orchestra/band/chorus. I'm not sure which one she is going to go with, but I keep pushing her to do orchestra... it will take her further. So, I have to start pulling out money to save for that trip! My oldest went with the chorus when she was in Middle School... she had a blast.  So, between, orchestra, chorus, Lacrosse and clubs... and homework LOL  It's going to be a busy year for my little social bug!

Alright.. enough of that LOL  On to my 2nd post for August with Whiff of Joy.

Isn't he adorable? This is Retired Bee which you can find at the Whiff of Joy Shop. I did a little bit of decoupage on him... I popped his hat, his tie, his front arm, his front leg and his front wing. I colored him up with my Copic Markers. I did a little bit of distressing on the edges of some of the papers. The papers are from a 6x6 stack - . The bottom strip of honey comb is from a My Favorite Thing die cut ad the honeycomb at the top are from a Spellbinders die. I then added the yellow gems from my stash.  The "You're Retiring?" stamp is from Club Scrap. I used the same paper stack to coordinate the inside and a few honeycomb in there as well.

  • Black on Bee: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Yellow On Bee: Y04, Y13, Y15, Y18
  • Blue on Tie and Hat: BG53, BG57
  • Black on Tie: C1, C3, C4
  • Cane: E30, E31, E35
  • Hat: E31, E35, E37, E39
  • Wings: C00, C1, C3, C4
