For My Teacher

Hello, Hello!
Long time...huh?
I've been a little neglectful of this little blog lately but I have been so busy this month...
Mother's Day...
and a little guy's birthday...
which just happen to fall on Mother's Day this year.
He was my Mother's Day gift...
and hubby keeps trying to regift him every year!
We're also in the middle of ball season and if it's not raining...
you can usually find us at the ball field.
School will be out next week for all the kiddos...
Summer vacation!
And busy prepping Haley for the ACT in just a couple of weeks...
so now you know what I've been up to...
and everything should start slowing down in another week or so and I may actually find time for some crafty time for me...

But I realized...
almost too late...
what today is and how can I miss my favorite day of the month?!

Every month on the 17th Waltzingmouse hosts a Blog Party over on Claire's blog...
such a great place to see amazing creative inspiration in one spot...
and this month the theme is TEACHER APPRECIATION!
You can get all the details on Claire's blog HERE.

I came up with this simple little ditty using Peace and Plenty...

Waltzingmouse May Blog Party

I colored in that perfect little apple with some Copics...
and the sentiment is from Frame It.
The fun school themed patterned paper is from Carta Bella Alphabet Junction...
and that fabby stitched scallop is from Lil' Inkers!

So are you ready to party?
No worries...
this party lasts for 24 hours so you have plenty of time!
I'm off to check out some of the amazing projects I know I'm going to see along the way...
hope to see you there!

Till next time!
