Last day of School!

Stickyfingers, our 8 year old, is delighted that today is his last day of 1st grade. Last night we worked on a card and small gift for his teacher. Of course, he wanted it to be a lot more, but dinner, dishes, and laundry got in the way, much to his chagrin.
I had fun using up some older PP for this card, and I enjoyed the layout challenge from SCS too. I realized that SU's "big blossoms" stamp set matched the PP perfectly and got quite excited!

SUPPLIES: CS is Bazzill and SU, PP is by Rob and Bob studios, Flowers stamps by SU, sentiment by Papertreyink, ribbon by SU, ink by Versamagic, Ranger, colorbox, and SU.

This is the "gift" we made her. A giant clothespin for her desk! I used the same PP so the whole shebang would coordinate, and painted some chipboard alphas a pale blue to match the PP, tossed on a flower and some green ribbon and was done! I took a quick photo of Stickyfingers holding a blank white sheet of butcher's paper, and after printing it out I added a rub-on (MM) to say thanks!
He was very excited to take the card and gift to school for her this morning. At the last minute, we picked some fresh organic peas from our garden and he took those in to the whole class too.
I'd say it was a good start to a last day!
