Farewell Summer! Oh how sweet it was to have two extra weeks to enjoy the lazy days of summer, (Thank you State of Alabama!) Those extra 14 days we would normally be in school zipped by quicker than a lightning bug when you are trying to catch him to stuff him into the jar. Goodbye lightning bugs and playing outside until nearly 9. Hello alarm clocks and heads in beds by 8. Our school routine is a tough one to get back into, just as it is for teachers too.
Kelleigh Ratzlaff, one of the amazingly talented designers at The Digi Chick is hosting a blog hop to celebrate going back to school at her amazing blog, Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. So, I joined in and made a little something-something for the kids teachers to try to help ease their transition. I used Kelleigh’s Tall Box Template Set to hold some pencils, highlighters and cute erasers.
To tie in the Farewell Summer theme, I made pinwheels with Kelleigh’s Pinwheels Template Set. Don’t pinwheels just make you think of summer? I also used two of her paper packs to make the box and pinwheels pretty, Summer Lovin’ Patterned Papers and Summer Lovin’ Mini Polkas. They are fun and bright and perfect for those end of the summer pictures or projects.
added a card to the Tall Box created with the paper packs and also Kelleigh’s Designer Label Shapes. I will have the kids sign the back of the card and we will add a gift card to sweeten the whole gift!
Now, you are ready to create something fabulous for those special teachers in your kids lives. There is plenty more inspiration on several other blogs, don’t miss a single one!
