Last Day of School!



Today was my daughter's last day of school. She still has another year of pre-K because she has an October birthday, but she's going to a new school next year. She was pretty sad about leaving her friends this afternoon which made me sad : ( I really like the parents too and I'm going to miss them as well! Anyway, I made a couple of teacher gifts and thought I would show them to you:





The sentiment is one of Michelle's awesome Digiments! I just sized it so it would fit in my Spellbinder's Tag Trio and sponged it with Rose Red. The little girl is from Magnolia~Sitting Summer Tilda, and the apple is from Whipper Snapper. The dp is from The Paper Studio.
My next card is the card I made for this week's Fun-Frilled Challenge to use Red, White, and Blue : ) I don't have any actual patriotic stamps, so I used this adorable Whipper Snapper Angel and colored her in using those colors. For the compete details, please visit Fun-Frilled! Thank you so much for stopping by today : )

Your teacher gifts are lovely, Kerri and your card is too. Very cute. Thursday was my daughter's last day of pre-school and she heads to Kindergarten in August at a different school. She's happy to have the summer off but sad because she won't see her friends and her teachers. I almost cried.

Ohhh what cute lil’ teacher gifts!! I’ve got a week and a half left to figure out what I’m going to make – but will probably go this route too! (only I won’t make the box – heh)

Really sorry that your daughter was so sad... But I am sure she will make new friends at new school!
Love your teachers gifts! They are so very cute! And you card is pretty! I really love how these colors worked together!
Hope the weather will be back to normal!

These teacher gifts are fabulous! I love how you added the digiment to those tags! The rose red sponged on top is gorgeous! And the red, white and blue card is stunning! I love the button on the star. It is so sad sometimes at the end of the school year. At the end of my son's kindergarten year {2 years ago} I cried the last day. He had the best teacher in the world that year, and I was so grateful to her. Luckily, for 1st and 2nd grade he got some amazing teachers, as well! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous projects.

Great projects! I'm sure the teachers really appreciated the gifts. I work with preschoolers all the time and its always hard at the end of the year especially when pairs of friends aren't going to the same kindergarten but they kids bounce back and are always making new friends. I bet she'll have a happy fun summer though.
