Teacher Gift

Life is crazy during the last week of school. I try to be on top of things and know what I would like to get my kids teachers at the end of the year, but this year I went to Utah! I got to go and party with my 80 year old Grandma for her birthday bash and we had a big family reunion! It was really fun! So I had a hard time concentrating on teacher gifts because I was so distracted. I went to my FAVORITE place on the web, the CRICUT message board and found the Smartie idea. It was perfect for my last minute effort!

I got the cute jar at the Dollar Tree. I used George to cut a sqare that fit the top of the jar perfectly. I used Doodlecharms to make the scallop heart. I made a rub-on for the saying. The stamps are from Walmart. The ink is Tim Holtz distress ink -tea dye-. The edges are inked with my favorite Chestnut Roan from Color Box. The flower is from Prima and a skittle in the middle. I would have liked to put a little more effort into it but for a last minute project it turned out OK.

Thanks for stopping by and ENJOY SUMMER!!!
