Teachers make the little ones count

  My twin girls started middle school and the adjustment has been more difficult for both of them than I imagined.  Each day has gotten better.  I am so grateful to the teachers for communicating with us daily (sometimes twice daily!)

  I created this card for my daughters to give to their case manager.  He is working so hard to ensure that the girls' needs are met and that they each have a pleasant middle school experience.  All of this makes me miss teaching all the more (I taught for middle and high school math ~15 years before my twins were born.)  Teachers rock.

  I started with my MME "School Daze" 6x6 but then thought it might be fun to mix with my Glitz Design "Yours Truly" 6x6.  What do you think?  I pushed different papers around, layering the way I wanted.  Then I went in search of a sketch.  I think this one is a keeper:

  This is Seize the Sketch challenge 4; I took a few liberties with the layering with both the "star" and scalloped piece, but I think I kept the integrity of the sketch.

  I am also entering this at Pumpkin Spice:  Primary Colors challenge.

paper:  Glitz Design "Yours Truly" 6x6; My Mind's Eye "School Daze" 6x6
black gems:  Imaginisce i-rock hot rocks
scalloped border:  Stampin' Up! slot punch

Happy Sunday!

What a lovely card for a very special person, and I know the recipient will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Your girls must be very special little ladies as they were given to parents who are just as special.
