Slumber Party Invites

9 is the magic number here in our house - that's the age you have to be before you can do slumber SURPRISE...we're having a slumber party next week on my DD's 9th birthday. She chose a dog theme so this is what I came up with. My inspiration and most of the poem came from here. I made 12 of them - surely (hopefully) the day after Christmas some of the girls will be out of town.

Thanksgiving goodies

Yesterday was spent making Thanksgiving treats for the teachers and kids at school.

Keeping with the tradition from our last school there were a couple of Chocolate-Pecan Pies for elementary teachers.

Pilgrim Hats for the kids. We've been making these for about the last 4 or 5 years and the kids still get excited every year. After making about 70 of these I'm expecting to eat at least one!

And finally nugget boxes for the middle school teachers. I am so glad I found that tutorial on SCS! These are so easy to make (esp. with my new Scor-It). These hold 8 nuggets.

Halloween Nugget Boxes

Halloween treats for the teachers. This TSL is from Shelly on SCS. I also found a great tutorial for nugget boxes from cdjkssss. She has just about any size box you could ever need. The one I chose will hold 6 of the Hershey's Nuggets.

Halloween Treat Bag

This is one of the treat bags I'll be sending to school for Halloween. It was made using the CDS with George and TBB&M carts. Basically it's the inch bag made shorter with a face cut out on one side.

Boy's Baptism Card

My inspiration for this card came from stampingout on Splitcoasters. I used CDS to design my version. The front of the card is covered with white satin fabric. I also used the swiss dots embossing folder on the vest.

Money Holder

I got the idea for this card from Angie - I love her money holder! I couldn't use her cut file since the savings bond I'm sending was too big, so I made a few changes...

Last minute gift for Teacher's Birthday

My first-grader came home yesterday exclaiming "Tomorrow is my teacher's birthday! I need to give her a present..." So when the kids were finally in bed last night this is what I came up with. Hopefully it resembles a Hall Pass or something useful. I used the Storybook Font with the Cricut Design Studio for the hall pass and Doodlecharms for the card and envelope.

*Turns out it wasn't her birthday after all, but it is her husband's. LOL Just my luck!
