Made It Monday!

I am cheating for this version of 'Made It Monday'. I hope you don't mind, but I think you will like the result.  :)  The past few years I have had the privilege of working with the most amazingly talented and creative woman I have ever known and wanted to show off one of her masterpieces.  
This little beauty is hanging in my classroom.  I purchased it at our annual art auction in May.  I am not sure if you can see all the details, but the bird, grass and flowers are cut from paper little ones in her class painted freely.  The 'SING' is old sheet music that little ones stamped with black paint and sponge letters and then cut apart.  The flower stems and some background pieces are scrapbook paper cut by little ones and strategically placed.  She then used Scrabble letter tiles for the saying 'KEEP CALM AND SING ON'.  After all was placed to her liking, she modged podged it on a piece of barn wood.
I tried to zoom into show more detail.  I apologize for how blurry it is, but I am not able to go back up to school to take close up pictures.  Every time I look at this in my classroom it makes me SO happy. :) Brenda we will miss you, but can't wait to see what you will create next in the new phase of your life!
Be sure to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics and her Made It Monday linky party!
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day. :)
