Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Many of you know that I'm a first grade teacher. This week, we're celebrating  BIG birthday - Dr. Seuss! So when I saw the Scraptastic Club challenge to use a children's book title on your project, I knew I would honor this fun author  my student's love so much! I chose..

I love this book. And love this quote.
The reading teacher in me :)

Anyway! On to the card :) I used the color challenge at Fantabulous Cricut - purple (wish I had a brighter purple on hand), blue, and green.

It's hard for me to match color combination challenges, so I used all cardstock and added interest by embossing. I ran the purple layer through  my "Traffic Jam" folder (get it lol! that's first grade humor for ya ;) I ran my blue layer through my "Seeing Spots" folder.. a favorite!

I printed my sentiment on the computer and popped up my image. It was cut with my Boys Will Be Boys cricut cart :) I'm enjoying using my cricut more!

Thanks for stopping by!

my mom is a retired 2nd/3rd grade teacher. The past couple of years she has dressed up as the Cat in the Hat and visited my 2 youngest children's classrooms to read Dr. Seuss stories to them. The kids and the teachers love it!
