Stories of Connor: Thank You Teacher...

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. ~Henry Brooks Adams
Today is Connor's End of Year Party at school, they are having Ice Cream Sundaes! Friday is 1/2 day and awards ceremony (where Connor has been chosen to get an award, not sure yet what it is!)
I loved the Apple I made his Kinder teacher so much I decided to CASE myself and make another one for his 1st Grade Teacher! (Next year I'll have to find new paper, I'm out of this adorable Imaginisce stuff!) The Apple shape is from Say It With Letters and I need to buy 11 more of these now so I will have them for Every teacher, ever year! I LOVE them, seriously perfect shape for a teacher gift!!!

I made a card to send along as doesn't match, because I ran out of the paper I used on the apple, but I decided this was a good use for my new Sassafras Lass Apple Jack paper and the ippity Book stamp I just got from Michelle...

  6. I love it! As a teacher, let me tell you that she will love both the apple and the card! What a special and painful time of year for teachers. All of your cherubs are moving on and there is such a tugging of the heart as you let them go. It's great for a teacher to be appreciated and recognized, especially in such a personal and beautiful way!
