Home for the Summer

Today was the last day of school and I had to say goodbye to an awesome teacher. It is a gift when a teacher can balance the fine line between discipline and nurture and we were lucky enough to have such a teacher, especially during the time of my mother's passing. It is comforting to know that your child is in capable and loving hands. Our family has learned a lot from her. As a thank you gift, I made her this dry erase board from a picture frame and matching card. I kept seeing these dry erase boards while blurfing (blog surfing) and decided I had to try making one.

The card recipe came from the new Close to My Heart Wishes Card Confidence book which is an excellent resource for card layouts and technique. It has now become my "go to" book when I get stuck. This card is called Down the Middle and all the guesswork was done for me including measurements and a beautiful color picture of the finished card. I just substituted Notebook Level 2 paper for my card.

Our homeroom mom made a really terrific scrapbook of the year which was presented to the teacher along with a gift card. It was the least we could do for someone who takes such good care of our kids.
