My Intern and Her Sign

Today was Lauren's last day!  It was sad but the kids did her good!  We made her a scrapbook with a letter and a picture from each student.  She loved her sign too!

Sign for my Intern!

So I have had a student teacher in my room for the last couple of weeks.  Friday is her last day so I made her a sign to hand on her door for her classroom.  I am so proud of her!!  Good luck Lauren!

Peyton's 4th Birthday!!!

I had my niece this weekend and it was her 4th birthday.  She helped me make her a card and a special cupcake holder for her birthday cupcake!

This is the front and the back of the cupcake holder.  I used the Sweet Treats Cartridge and after many attempts realized the box should be cut at 6.5".  I used the number 4 and some little flowers.  Peyton helped put the buttons in the middle of the flowers.  I used Recollection paper from Michaels.  I love the colors!!

Here is her card.  I used the Birthday Bash Cartridge.  Peyton loved pushing the cut button on my cricut!  
I cut the Lady Bug at 4.5" which was a little big for my A2 size card but I wasn't using an envelope so it was ok.  The glitter paper is DCWV glitter cardstock that I got at Michaels a couple of weeks ago for $2.99!!!! So excited about that!! The rest of the paper was out of my scrap pile.  
Peyton loved the card and kept carrying it around to show everyone!!  

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share!!
God bless!

Not much Card making going on!!

If you don't know I am a 5th grade teacher in Texas.  So that means TAKS testing!!  With that going on, I haven't really done any crafting here lately which in itself is very depressing!!  I have been helping do a couple of projects for the kids though, so I thought I would post that on here.

My daughter had to do a family tree in spanish class, but there was a catch.  They had a do an "unique" family tree!  So we made dinosaurs and put them on a volcano!  I think it turned out really cute.  I used Create-a- Critter for the dinos and cute them at 4".

Hope you enjoy!
