You're an Allstar

Hey bloggers! Just a quick post tonight to show you the token gifts I gave to the teaching staff at the school I'm working for. It just so happens that the school's nickname is the Allstars, and their colors are red & blue. I intentionally bought this stamp set from PTI because of the phrase "You're An Allstar". So perfect!
I purchased some plain white popcorn boxes from Michael's and filled them with a bag of Caramel Apple Popcorn, which I purchased from Cost Plus World Market. Made a wrap for the box and a tag.

I made about a dozen of them. They looked so festive when they were all together. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I Know, I Know....

Hello bloggers! I know, I know, I'm about the flakiest blogger out there! I promised a post earlier this past week, but time got away from me. I went back to the classroom to set up and prepare for my students, who start this coming Wednesday, and then my own children started school this past Wednesday. Just a busy time a year. Naturally, I went to the sketch from Clean and Simple to make a quick card to post for you. I happened to have a stamped up card base from when I was working with the new colors from Close To My Heart, but I hadn't used it, yet. I added the cocoa sentiment strip and the text style butterflies, and the card was done! As you can tell, I kept the same color scheme from this card, which is why I had a stamped up card base to begin with, but ended up taking a different route. Anyhow, enough rambling. I have been working on some back-to-school "trinkets" for my fellow teachers, which I hope to share soon. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
