I'm baaack!!!

It's been months since I last posted and my life has surely been on a roller coaster ride with all sorts of things happening to me - both negative and positive, but through it all, I managed to survive and finish the school year with a bang!  I'm finally on vacation for the summer and I feel like I can finally breathe, so I hope to be back blogging much more often!!

For some highlights of what has been happening to me - I won Social Studies Teacher of the Year for Miami-Dade county which is so very exciting for me.  I also took my cheerleading team to their first competition and they won the first one and placed 2nd against 8 teams in their second competition so it was very exciting.  I was also able to take a group of 20 kids to Washington D.C. on a field trip of a lifetime.  My son also graduated from Pre-K and had his first piano concert, which he did great in!!!  There is so much more that happened in between, but those are just a few things that have kept me very  busy and away from here!

So today, to ease my way back in, I wanted to share a school layout and the teacher gift I made for my son's teacher.  I had an acrylic frame that I decided to scrap.  I found this great dimensional sticker that said "I love my teacher" and it worked perfectly.  I chose three pictures, two with her and him and I added the sticker on top of the frame.  On the back, I wrote her a beautiful card that she could read over and over again, wherever she decides to put the frame.  I put this and other monogramed items as well as a fabric flower pot (which I personalized with #1 Teacher and her name as well as a message from my son) and a gift card in a basket.

I also completed this layout of my son in PreK 4 including him in his classroom, his artwork and wrote about his favorite things this past year.  The buttons on the bottom are made with a great Martha Stewart punch to which I added scrapper's floss.

I'm in the process of organizing my scraproom (again, lol!) and hopefully, I hope to get back into scrapping and sharing my work with you all much more often.  
As always, thanks for stopping by!!
