Pause Dream Enjoy #38 Recess

Remember when you were a kid and your school days were spent day dreaming about what you were going to do at recess?  This week at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges we are giving you a chance to do that again!  What did you like to play back in the day?  We are asking you to create a project with a play theme.  Here is what I came up with:

I decided to go with the idea of hopscotch. It was always fun to make the hopscotch grid extra big to see how far everyone could jump!

I started with the paper pack from  Fancy Pants.  I chose it because of the sentiments, I thought they were perfect for the theme, and I decided to go with several of the papers.

I chose all of the patterns I liked, some coordinating cardstock, and cut everything down to size.kinked the sheets with light brown and adhered the main panel.

Once ribbon and twine were added I adhered the hopscotch squares with foam tape.  The squares are just 1" square, inked with white, and numbered with a white gel pen and a glitter pen.  Some glitter pen added to the sentiment, and some red rhinestones finished everything off nicely.

Now its your turn!  This week our sponsor is Mark's Finest Papers and they are offering the below stamp set as a prize, called Buffalo Spring. Its a great prize!
