Teacher Gift

My sister in law asked me to make 15 gifts for her childrens' teachers, coaches, bus drivers, etc. So I decided to use one of Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates - Get a Handle on It. I think they turned out cute. I also made a coordinating 3x3 holiday card to go with each box for the kids to sign. The boxes were filled with chocolates and caramels. Yumm! :)


STAMP: Dasher (love that lil reindeer!)

PAPER: vanilla, old olive, merry moments dsp, choc chip, real red

INK: choc chip, real red

ACCESS: square nesties, oval punch for handles, circle punches and scalloped cirale punch for card

Lightning McQueen Cake

So of you may know that Bella is obsessed with Lightning McQueen , from Cars. So for her preschool birthday party today, I decided to surprise her with a Lightning cake. I baked the cake, and Chris decorated it. I think it turned out pretty good! The kids ate it all up, not even leaving a taste for the teachers.

Happy Birthday, Bella!

Today, my "baby" turns 4. Where has time gone? When we brought Bella home from the hospital at a teeny 5 lb 8 oz, we never thought she would grow out of her preemie clothing. Now, almost over night it seems, she is so grown up. She is such a joy and blessing in my life. She is my crafting side kick - always eager to help with whatever crafting projects I'm doing. She is funny and imaginative. She is the best big sister.

Here's to you, Bella...Happy Birthday!! I love you with all my heart!!
