Last Day of School

Finally we end the school year, although nothing has been taught for about a week now anyway. Grades were due last Wednesday and the kids have been having Field Day, new school tours, a luau party, a bon voyage party, field trips, even yearbook signing for the day today!

I put together some end of the year gift baskets. They have Friendship Tea in them, stamped tiles, painted tea bag holders, post it note holders, hand gel and soap from Bath and Body Works, and a bit of chocolate.

I tried to fancy them up by tying them up with cellophane and a bow. The teachers were very appreciative and I know they look forward to vacation more than the rest of us. I was secretly hoping the baskets would help deplete items in my stash, but I don't seem to have made much room.
Hanna Stamps is having a contest to see who wants to be a guest designer for the months of September through February. They are looking for people who can creatively use their stamps in fun new ways. Check out the details on the Hanna forum on SCS for your chance to win a spot. I am looking forward to seeing how creative everyone is. I think this is a great way to find new talent.

cute layout! :-) I love the birdie.

did you figure out a good day for craft night? Thursdays might be the only night that are out for me... I worked hard to get that stupid sparring class on, i suppose it would be bad for me to miss it... :-)
