Back to School

Hi Everyone!
  It was back to school week here, so it's been busy!!  The weather has definitely turned to Fall and the breeze blowing off Lake Superior has a bit of a bite to it now as the trees are starting to change in to their vibrant Fall colors.  This is my favorite time of year!!  My Alex started 3rd grade this week, and his biggest revelation so far--there's no more snack in 3rd grade Mom!!
  So, with back to school comes birthday party invitations and teacher appreciation gifts.  Which leads me to this teacher thank you that I created at the end of the year last year for Alex's 2nd grade teacher.  I Googled "pop up gift card holder" and found the directions.
  I used the set "First Day" that just retired in the Summer Mini (I'm keeping it around though until Stampin' Up comes up wit something like it or brings it in to next year's catalog :) ).  Although, this idea could work with all kinds of current sets.

  If you wanted to do a teacher thing, you could use a letter set to make a patterned background and the Tart and Tangy apple for your image--or you could use some of Fox and Friends.  Anyways--on to the pictures.  Enjoy!!  If your kiddos headed back to school this week, I hope they had a good week, and if you are a teacher, thanks for all you do!!

Happy Stampin'
