Goodbye Teacher




Goodbyes are always sooo very hard. Especially when it is your own child saying goodbye to a wonderful teacher. And this year my 7yo son's first grade teacher had to leave unexpectedly after the Christmas break was over.

Can I brag just a little?? This ENTIRE card was his idea/design and execution. I only told him of the cuttlebug folder with dots for the dolphin. Also, he wanted the "sentiment" to be so large I changed "You Are" to U R because it wouldn't have fit otherwise.

This is all Papertrey product because she was THAT good of a teacher, lol! The cartridge we used was Life's a Beach. (I was so glad we had gone to the beach earlier last year because that is the only reason I owned it... when he said her card *had* to have a dolphin I knew LAB had one... otherwise that would have been a VERY expensive card!!).

Enjoy!

What a creative card! I'm sure your teacher will love that you made it yourself and that it looks so good! Great job, Jake!

Oh how sweet is that boy of yours?! And talented too! It's beautiful and I know that his teacher will cherish it.

Oh my goodness. This is the good oil. I am so moved by your son's creations. Skills galore. Like my grandma always used to say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Beyond lovely!
