Retirement Snip for A Friend

 One of our school counselors is retiring in a few days.  I was asked to contribute something to a memory book for her.  Here is the snip I made.
I found this quote and it seemed to fit her perfectly.

Now that summer break is almost upon me, I have plans to do lots of scherenschnitte.  I have promised a piece here and there (that's you kg), and it is time to get snippin'.


scherenschnitte 11 1/2" x 11 1/2"
