My youngest daughter is headed to high school next year and today is saying goodbye to a school that she has attended since fourth grade. Her school is awesome and while she is excited to go on to high school, she is sad to leave this school and her teachers she loves so much!
For the past two years, she has had the same team of teachers – her class size is very small – only 14 students, so the bond between the students and the teachers is a strong one!
We wanted to do something special for her teachers – and so here’s a photo of what he did – for the 3 women teachers, we got a pretty mini rose plant and for the men – large size chocolate candy bars. I made up a “pocket” card – that holds a gift certificate for each of them. Here’s a close up of the card
I used My Digital Studio (MDS) for part of the card – (A is for Apple download) and then used some Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Paper. The pocket is made from an envelope – I sealed the envelope and then just trimmed about 1/4 inch off one end to create a pocket.
I am loving MDS – it makes gift giving really easy!!
Faith is in eighth grade this year and has 7 wonderful teachers. We made up little Christmas gifts for them – we appreciate ALL that they do for Faith and her school.
It is great when you have four daughters because many of the teachers she has this year are the same teachers her older sisters had. Our daughters have been truly blessed over the years by the wonderful teachers in Canton City Schools – and we are grateful to them all!
These were really fun to make – they are square shaped chocolate bars I found and we tucked a Starbucks Gift Card on the back.
I wrapped the chocolate with assorted patterns from the pretty Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Paper, cut out a Silver Glimmer Snowflake with the Snow Flurry Bigz die, and put it all together with Cherry Cobbler Tulle ribbon (you know how much I love that!)
Now for her Math teacher (one of our all time favorites) we did something a little different! We have an ongoing rivalry between favorite college football teams -and which is better – and thought this tag would be fun to give him!
This tag is a FREE download and can be ordered through my online store – it is designed as chalkboard art which is so popular – but I wanted to change the background color, which was really easy to do through My Digital Studio 2!
This year more than any we want our teachers and school staff to know how very much we appreciate what they do!
So to the teachers and staff in Canton City Schools, and teachers everywhere –
THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO! Our family truly appreciates all of you!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by – working at crossing a few more “to do’s” off my list today!
