Waltzingmouse May Blog Party - Teacher Appreciation

It's the 17th and you know what that means right?  Time to party Waltzingmouse style.   Every month a new theme is announced - this time it's Teacher Appreciation.  This is a great opportunity to see different ways people use their favorite sets to meet the spirit of the theme.    After thinking on this one for a while I though the Playful Pinwheels would be just the ticket!  Here's what I came up with...

I stamped and fussy cut the pinwheel.  The center is a button topped with a half pearl, and yes that is a real lollipop stick for the handle.  Like Claire says... I hope it tickles!

There's still time to play along if you haven't got a project made.  You can see all the other creations linked up and get more details here.


 Before you go I hope you will leave me a comment.   While Claire is offering up some blog candy for the blog party entries  - it is my 2nd year blogversary and I am putting up a little of my own. You have until May 31 to leave me a comment.  One random winner will receive the Folk Art Medallions and Folk Art Labels 25 stamp sets.  Good luck and thanks so much for all your support this past year - you've been a real blessing in my life!
