Hello, Goodbye

I almost forgot that this week is the last week I will be working with my dear friend, Foxy. Foxy is a phenomonal teacher and has turned around 3 hard groups of kids. She is an amazing reading teacher and has taught ME everything I know. We started our jobs at our elem. school the same year. She was right across the hall from me for the last 3 yrs. We've gone through some tough years and also had fun. She'll be going to a new school as a 3rd grade teacher where I hope she is appreciated as much as I know I appreciate her. Love ya Foxy!

Well, here is a goodbye, hello gift for her: things she can hopefully display in her new classroom and remember her old buddy from across the hall :)

I broke out the ole cuttlebug to emboss the background. I used Wasau CS- new find at Target. Not too bad actually. Patterned paper is from K and Company Wild Saffron. Stamps from the old Gnome set from SU. Drawing a blank on the name.

I used some SU wood blocks I didn't use to mount stamps to make these name blocks for her. Paper is from CTMH Silouhette collection. American Crafts rub ons. The other side has coordinating paper and the edges are lined with rickrack since they're thin blocks.

Finally, is another collage using the silouhette paper and stamps from Happy Harmony (SU, 07 saleabration). I embossed the dandelions in gold on the transparency. I am also entering this in a martha stewart contest since the shadow box is by MSC.

I also made some items for Paper Wings but they're hush hush until the reveal! I know MFT, H and M stamps, Treehouse Stamps and Pink Cat Studio all have reveals soon- can't wait to see what they have in store!

Since this is the last week of school, I probably won't post until next weekend. Until then, hope everyone has a fantabulous week!!
