So I just got a little education about the New Jersey shoreline. Never knew about Long Beach Island before this summer and boy, was I missing out. I also learned the “Don’t Give Up the Ship” story, as this flag flies at the host’s house. …thought about using more word play but one has to draw the line in the sand somewhere.
It takes a special family to host a student on internship for the whole summer; this is the thank you that went to that family. Can you guess where she interned/where they lived? Yep, you got it. Los Alamos, home to the famous Laboratory (ahem, nerd internship perfection) and birthplace of the first atomic bomb. This set was my homage to that notable (??? notorious) distinction.
Background stencils from the lovely Melanie at Killer Zebras. Silver Sheen airbrush color from Americolor Corp. Silver disco dust on “thank you” from Sunflower Sugar Art.
Hats off to Chef’s Restaurant for donating to First Book’s Feed the Need to Read project here in Buffalo. This project allows First Book WNY to supply books to kids who have never had their own book and/or have none at home. A big cookie “thank you” for being so generous!
Sometimes words are not enough. These sweet wishes are often presented with a side of chocolate chip cookies but other occasions are pure “gratitude.”
