Blast Off Into Summer Blog Hop

3 - 2 - 1 - BLAST OFF!! 

WELCOME all and thanks for stopping by and a big THANK YOU to Lynda and Wendy for hosting this hop.

My project is simple and very easy and when making things in multiples, easy-peasy is the way to go. 

I bought acrylic frames at the dollar store - you know the kind with the magnetic strip on the back. 
Jazzed it up with some chipboard that I got in a huge seasonal pack from HOBBY LOBBY and with red tape and ribbon I made the ruffle.  Then I hot glued it directly to the frame.

Some cute "school" cardstock for the background and black as the mat for the picture with (of course) white stitching around the edge of the black paper (I was trying to make it look like a chalkboard). 

I printed out my favorite teacher quote then punched it out with a tag punch.  Inked the edges and added a little ribbon.

This is my wonderful daughter on her first day of student teaching and as you're reading this, we are at her college graduation.  She is going to be the most wondeful teacher ever!!  <---- a little bias I know :)

Thanks again for stopping by and please become a follower, leave a comment and a way for me to contact you  for a chance to win a little gift from me to you
