Teachers Gift

Because I am a slacker, I didn't get Peyton's teacher's gift made til after we had our conference. But, I did make it and will send it with him tomorrow, for his first day of school!

The Paper Variety's last challenge for the blogiversary party was to use your favorite embellishment. I LOVE tiny type alphas. I've been using them a lot lately! The tiny types were perfect for this tag as my printer is down and a lot of letters were needed.

I saw this quote somewhere out there in blogdom and it stuck with me. 'I hope your new year starts out smoothly'. Cheesy I know...but I thought it was cute!
So I made a tag to slip onto a bottle of lotion I picked up. Since the bottle was orange, I decided to make sure that color was in the tag. I have a few bits and pieces from Scenic Route left in my stash and have been itching to use them. I happened to have almost exactly the right sizes of papers to alter the bag! I just love it when things work out like that and I don't' have to throw away paper!
Just a quick and simple tag and card!

Thanks for stopping by!
