~Thankful for LovingTeachers~

My girls are so blessed

they have loving teachers in their lives.

 I homeschool my girls....and of course I love them. ;)

But, there are others who regularly teach and inspire them with their love and kindness.

Sunday school teachers, dance teachers, and a piano teacher.

Instead of waiting until Christmas...I decided to show my appreciation now.

I don't believe they'll expect gifts this time of the year. ;)

Besides...there was this awesome Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin soap that was a great price...

I cut the tags out with a Sizzix die, added the Papertrey Ink apple die, and used several stamps to achieve the tag. 

I scored the middle of the "book" to add a dimensional pocket for a couple of chocolates.

I got these gifts done before Thanksgiving!

PaperCrafts November 2011 Gallery Challenge is displaying our Thanksgiving inspired projects. 

I chose traditional Thanksgiving colors to express my gratitude to these wonderful teachers.

I pray your day was full of crafty fun also! ;)
