Thanks to Teachers!

>> Tuesday, April 28, 2009

This will have to be a quick post since i have to leave to pick up my preschooler very soon! What me? not wordy?? I know.. it'll be a shocker!

My son's preschool is having a teacher's luncheon tomorrow. I was asked by one of the mom's (who knew i like crafty things) if i would make placecards for each teacher. She decided to get some quotes from students in each class to see if i could use them. let me tell you... kids say some really funny stuff. But some of it was so sweet too!

We knew we wanted to keep everything colorful, but i didnt want everything to look the same, so i choose Sorbet (PTI), Groovy Guava (retired in color from SU), Cool Caribbean (retired in color from SU) and some random green that i think is SU but who knows in my paper stash. I printed the teachers names and quotes on Neenah because now that i've used it, i'm a neenah snob and GP just doesnt have the pretty smooth white finish that i want! :)

Here's a view of all the cards (16 of them i think... i blurred out the children's last names)


Here's a closeup of one so you can see a little detail. Yes i know i didnt blur out the last name... i'm the mama, and i give myself permission. :) And yes, thats exactly what my 3 year old said he liked about his teacher. Laster he also told me he didnt like her, he LOVED her. Woops, i already had the cards finished. I'll have to tell her the correction.



Other tools used...
Cat's Eyes Chalk Inks
Swiss Dots cuddlebug folder (and machine)
Branch Punch from martha stewart crafts
butterfly punch from martha stewart crafts
Baroque Motifs swirl stamp and white daisy (ctmh) ink (stamped on the cardstock before punching out the butterflies)

ok... now i have 4 minutes to pick jack up. good thing i live close! :)

Those little quotes are just too funny. I did a similar project for my parents-in law as a gift from my daughter. She came up with the craziest reasons why she loved them.
I think the colors are great here, and they have such wonderful detail. The teachers will love these!
