End of Year!!!!

Well it is official. School holidays have started in our house and the fun has begun!!!

We had our End of Year Concert at school and I have to say Josh looked very cute up on stage. Unfortunately the photos didn't turn out too well. Maybe next year...

I did get photos of the presents I made for the teachers. It is very hard to know what to get teachers so I thought I would make something personalised. I hope they liked them. After a friend of mine told me how the teachers at her school complained about receiving handmade things I nearly didn't do them but went ahead anyway. They both seemed to really like them so I am happy.

I made these from MDF coasters. I covered the inside of the coasters in paper. The outside is covered with Brocade Blue card and then stamped the swirl from the Priceless stamp set all over and then embellished it with the butterfly stamp from the same stamp set. I used the Crop-a-dile to punch the holes for the rings and then put ribbon on the rings to decorate. I downloaded the calendar from SCS.

As Josh has two teachers this year I made two versions. This one was made using Wild Wasabi card and the new Eastern Blooms stamp set from the Summer Mini.

I also made one for the Teacher's Aide but ran out of time and didn't take a photo.
