Let's Celebrate the Weekend

As I write this  it is Thursday night, which means it is almost Friday. I am ready for the weekend as the kids have just been driving me nuts this week. I get it, they are all excited for the holidays and vacation time coming in a couple of weeks, and us nasty teachers are making them do work. :)  Plus the sun popped out the last couple of days and I think they are as sun starved as I am.
But oh, it is a challenge.
So I have a journal page for Sheila's challenge over at Art Journal Journey. This month we are celebrating with a challenge titled Let's Celebrate. I stenciled some colorful fireworks. Then I painted and doodled the words and finally added some metallic sequins. And because my sequins have a bit of a twinkle to them, I am joining in with the Twinkle Twinkle challenge over at Try It On Tuesday.
And I won a little package from Michelle over at Tag Tuesday that I thought I would share with you today.
 First there was this awesome tag.
And then there was a nice little collection of some really fun stickers.
I have some fun ideas for these.:)
And there was also this postcard which also gives me a few ideas.

Thanks Michelle for some great prizes. 
Happy Almost weekend.

That certainly is a fun, celebration tag. Brought a smile to my face on Friday Eve. Looks like you got some cool goodies to play with. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Congratulations on your win at Tag Tuesday. Really great.

I thought I had missed a day when I saw the title of your post. But now I realize you are simply ready to celebrate and it won't be long until the weekend is upon us. It's a great entry for Sheila's theme at Art Journal Journey. Thanks so much for sharing it because I am truly impressed with this entry.

Glad your prize reached you safely from Michele, and I can see you using those stickers on some of your journal pages. Great one today, lovely colours, and I know how you feel when you're longing for the weekend, I did that for 35 years before I stopped teaching! Have a good one, hugs, Valerie
