Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Okay, so being NEW at this... I did not know that teacher appreciation was the week of May 10th. That said, I made their gifts last night and will post them now. I was going to post the snack Lgirl took to school, but since these *technically* were supposed to be done at the beginning of May, I decided to post them now.

For both, I made the a frame and a matching card. The paper is SU and so is some of the ribbon. I used primas, and MM gem brads as well as regular metal brads. I like this paper, but realize it will *more than likely* be retired as they will be retiring the red in this paper (cranberry crisp). They look MUCH better IRL because you can't see where I took my Sakura Gel Pen *LOVE IT!!!* and dotted followed a bunch of the minute lines in the flower paper. Sigh... such is the life of an amateur photographer... though I did take a class in High School but retain NO KNOWLEDGE of the class (SYSTEM for all those B rated movie fans from one of my FAVS... Party Girl!!).

On another note, I did donate to 2 causes... (do you think I can remember now???) one was a breast cancer awareness walk I remember that. I found these causes on various blogs and clicked a couple of times... did I mention I get easily lost in blog land? hehehe

Okay, I've gotta go... I'm sorry to leave ya HANGING... but the internet is not working so I can't show you the uber cool site for the whoopie pies I won... I'll try again tonight!
