Hip Hop 5-28

WELCOME EVERYONE!!! Happy Hip Hop!! Its the last Thursday of May, and the end of the school year is fast approaching!! This week, Unity's focused on teacher gifts, etc....

At our school,its all about the Starbuck's gift cards... And so, I made some gift card holders, with a pillow box template I had from way back when I first started scrapping (maybe 9 years ago??) - and the School Rock Star kit. With teachers, I'm very careful to keep them equal (most years, they are the exact same gift) so gift-cards-in-the-same-packaging-but-still-somewhat-personalized is a perfect way to go.

My DD's teacher is all girlie girl:



I love how versatile this kit is, since my DS's teacher is a sports loving man's man, and I needed to man-ify it....


Hee hee. I hope they like it.

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is


Enjoy the rest of your hop. Hip hop!
