I tried changing it up a bit by using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots on the background....
then I went for the cleaner look....which I have to say I like better.
Gianna had her last day on Friday. Since the last 2 days of school are 1/2 days they swap the AM & PM classes so the AM class's last day is Monday with the rest of the school. Gianna actually lucked out with that.....sorta....since we still had to be up to take Marissa to school today for her last day.
But now it's over!!!
This is a pic of Gianna's classroom as their teacher was handing all the kids a shovel & pail for summer fun. This was bittersweet...we found out that morning that their teacher is being transferred to one of the other schools in town to teach 1st grade. She was tearing up at dismissal. I'm not sure the kids understood it but the parents did & there was a lot of tearing up....
I'm so done with the craziness of these 1/2 day classes of Kindergarten. It really breaks up the day, taking one to school then going to work with Gianna then rushing home to change her into school clothes & lunchtime, then taking her to school only to go back at 3. Luckily next they will both be in school full time in the Fall!!Took this real quick after school. It's Marissa, her BFF Ariel & her brother Donovan (he didn't want to be in the pic) LOL!! I can't seem to wrap my head around Marissa going into 4th grade. She's almost done with this school then it'll be off to middle school. Yeah I know it's still 2 years away but it goes so fast!!
Thankfully I had to pass my camera off at one point & the lady offered to take a family pic. I got to hold Gianna's game tickets that she was presented at the 11th hole so I was the "mummy".A few hours later we had the family over for cake & coffee....yep you can call me crazy!! I kept it simple though & all she cared about was opening all her presents! Let's be real! LOL!!
While we were waiting for everyone to come over she lost the tooth that she's been wiggling at me, grossing me out for the last few days. We told her we believe the Tooth Fairy doubles the amount she normally leaves when it's your birthday (& that extends to parties). LOL!!For the house I wasn't going to go crazy(er) making another elaborate cake so when I found this in one of my many baking magazines I figured it was easy enough (and it was). Her new favorite color is yellow so I made that as the main color & the handle is from airheads candy that I warmed in the microwave & rolled out then twisted. She loved it!One of her favorite gifts was the Alice In Wonderland DVD. She has been asking for this since the movie was still in theaters!! She goes around the house yelling "OFF WITH HER HEAD" all the time!! LOL!She was on a birthday high all day & had so much fun! She's a lucky little 6 year old!!
Me & my baby...***sniff sniff**....she'll be in 1st grade in the fall...no more shadow....no more special time together....it's bittersweet. But on the other hand I won't miss running back & forth to school every 2 1/2 hrs to drop off/pick up. And then there will be more homework.....Yeah bittersweet. ;)
With that, 1st grade here she comes!!
I pulled out some OLD Making Memories paper for the background thinking it was ok if I messed it up, since at the time when I bought it I was just starting out in scrapbooking & literally stocked up on it! hee hee!!!! ;) When I saw how cute & easy this was coming together I pulled out some Bo Bunny for the body. Then I punched the edge with this border punch (messing it up just *slightly* (but hey it was 1am!!), then stamped it with this Hero Arts stamp.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!
When I was all done I noticed there is an OWL on the cartridge....LOVE!!! I will be playing with that little dude very very soon!
