This week I wanted to share with you the project I've been working on for Cubby's kindergarten teacher for several weeks now. I am the room mom for his class and in charge of the gift for the end of the year. My older two children have had this teacher as well....and now she has become a dear friend....so needless to say I am soooooo sad that Cubby will be moving on to first grade soon :( I decided to make a cookbook for her...she is VERY practical and I thought it would be a quick, easy and inexpensive thing to put together for her.....well, I was pretty wrong all the way around!
It took a TON of emails, notes, reminders and phone calls to gather up all of the childrens favorite recipes. Then I wanted them to draw a picture to go along with it.....another big deal. I've been working on it for over a month now...and I also decided to make 22 copies of it so all of the kiddos could have one too...WHEH!! Here is Cubby's page.....
THEN I decided to put some pages at the back with pictures of all of our events and parties from the past year........and you know the Treatgirl just can't slap them on a page!!! Of course she got into scrapbooking them!!! Ordering the pictures, a trip to Michaels and Joannes for some cute supplies and doo-dads.....afternoons and late nights of scrapping....but it has turned out soooooooo cute!!! I know she will love it when we present it to her at the class picnic on Wednesday.
And WOW! What a difference it is to scrap on 8 1/2 x 11" pages! I've never done it before.....you can only use 4 or 5 pictures at the most...but you can crank them out quite quickly.
It seems like Halloween was just a few weeks ago!!!
And how cute are all of the pilgrims and indians for their Thanksgiving Feast????
Well.....gotta run...a few more pages to finish by Wednesday :)
