A Gift for the Teacher.....

Good Evening everyone!!

Lauren Meader is having a challenge this week to use one of her tamplate and have a school theme. Since I don't have any school age kids, I decided to do this one and make it a gift for the teacher. I hope this qualifies.

I went together so easy and so much fun to make. I could give this to one of my grandkids so they could give it to their teacher, or I could take the tag off and put it in my living room since those are the colors I have there. :)

I used PTI's Pure Poppy for the base. The pattern paper is some that I had in my stash. The flowers I crocheted. I used Pure Poppy Saddle Ribbon for the handle and used brads to attach it to each side. I used a gem flourish for a little extra touch. The A+ brad was in some school supplies that I had won on a blog.

That is about it for this post. Have a great evening! See you tomorrow.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look,

Oh my! This is just beautiful! I'm so glad you used this template because I almost forgot all about it...and I LOVED it when I saw all of Lauren's samples :O) Your colors and that patterned paper is stunning...I say, forget the teacher gift and keep this one for your living room! It's definitely pretty enough to use (or display) :]

Thanks for playing along! Hope you can join us again next Saturday for a fab sketch challenge.
