Good morning! So, I'm a little behind the eight ball in creating for back to school but when your son is 13, going into 8th grade, and has two male teachers...well, that just doesn't create they same sense of excitement as, frankly, having a female teacher.
I thought it would be fun to make something for the principal's door for the first day of school so...I found a pattern from My Scrap Chick (I think it was a freebie or $1 pattern) and played with the colored School Sheep image in Photoshop (I added the a,b,c, 1,2,3, and welcome back to the chalk board) and eventually decided it would all work. I cut the door knob hanger first, then printed and cut the sheep image with my nesties. I thought it was cute right there but just not enough so I opened up the outlines background paper that comes in the School Sheep set and printed that onto the green cardstock (both front and back due to the way the hanger folds up). I then added some color to a select few apples. I also was going to glitter up the apples but grabbed my glaze pen instead...a good mistake because I like the way the apples look glazed. The leaves are sparkled though and so is the apple on the desk. Just a little bit of twine under the image tied (pun intended ) this all together.
Now I think I'm going to make one of these for each of the female teachers, the school secretary and the principal...being that it is a small school, though, it will only be 8 of them and one is done! What is going to go in the pocket you may ask? I think I'll put a dark chocolate Girardelli square and a packet of the Starbucks Via coffee...a good start to just about anyone's morning right?
In John 14:18 Jesus says, "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you" (KJV). That's a strong, assertive statement spoken with the authority of God. Believe me, my stressed out Sisters, and ask for it each time gray clouds start rolling in over your lake. From: It's No Secret, Rachel Olsen Like many of you I have had many storms roll over my lake and I gotta tell ya...Jesus can calm them in a second if you just call on him. If you'd like to know more about my faith please let me know!
