Laissez les bons temps rouler

We’ve made it halfway through the week! So far all I’ve really done is work on my posts here, and study for my upcoming test. They basically both take up all my time except for breaking for food. Anyways, today I’m going to show y’all the rest of what I did with my “Mardi Gas Beads” I made on “Make It Monday.”  So let’s get started with “Laissez les bons temps rouler,” Which means “Let the Good Times Roll!” in French…

Things Used:
