teachers gifts- cookies

School is over and the end of the year always means teacher gifts. I always have an issue. I can't afford to do a nice gift for the 2 teachers, 1 sub, 2 music teachers and 3 aides so what do I do? I made cookies. The music teachers got music notes
one aide got ice cream cookies
and the other teachers and aides got apple cookies.

I think the teachers liked them and my kids are happy to eat the leftovers.

OWH Challenge #21

Here is the sketch for this week.
Here is my card- In my thoughts. I thought it would be a good sympathy type card without actually putting sympathy on it.

Flag Day

Flag day at school is so patriotic. The kids are so excited to wear red, white and blue, hold their flags and sing songs. My 4 yr old practiced  You're a grand old flag every day for over a month. The school was afraid of rain so they moved most of the festivities inside. They did march around the block and they loved that.

OWH Challenge- Make a manly card

I will confess. Manly cards are not my thing. I almost never make them. I don't really have a lot of men in my life so I make everything girly. This is my attempt at a manly card.

OWH Challenge #20

I love the OWH Challenges. It helps me see the cards and paper in a new way. I try to use the challenges as a way to use all of my scrap paper. I had this paper left from teacher Thank You cards. This week I made 2 cards- You're on my mind.

Here is the sketch we were given-

Garden Girl - Scrapbook Page

I love how this turned out. I cut the large circle and letters with my gypsy. It is easier than I thought and I like to play with it when I am waiting somewhere.

Back to scrapbooking

I MUST get back into scrapbooking. I have the pictures, all of the supplies but I really want to get back into it. When I started making cards I loved the instant gratification and I loved how people loved the cards. I kept making cards and then sending them to OWH and just never got back to scrapping. I have finished 2 pages so I thought I would post them. As I finish more pages I will post. I will still be making cards but hopefully I can keep up with both.
