Last day of school treats

I literally just walked in the door from taking my 4 year old to her last day of pre-school. I bent down to look her in the eye and wish her the best fun on her last day but I could not get my words out. My throat closed and my eyes filled with tears. I was a mess! I am filled with emotion. My baby girl is growing ... moving onto a new school and Kindergarten. We will miss the amazing teacher we were blessed to have. We will miss our friends. But worst of all is that she just keeps growing up! sigh. I tell my kids often that they just need to stop growing and they need to stay little forever.

Saraya and I sat in my office this morning and made some little treats for her friends. It was so nice to do it together and watch her Stampin', just like mom. She says the same phrases as I ... like "we are flying now! momma" when we are snailing up a storm. She likes to sit right next to me so we are touching. And she says about a hundred times "these are beautiful!" Here is a peek:

It was a last minute idea at 8:30 this morning. Really a quick treat to put together. We ran to the grocery store and bought a box of ready made Rice Krispie treats. Saraya put a treat in a Medium Clear Envelope and sealed the top. I stapled on a Designer Series Paper banner and we snailed on the Sweet Summer greeting. 

To make the Sweet Summer Greeting I hopped on MDS!!!! Using a combination of stamps and text (with of course coordinating colors to the DSP) we creating the super cute greeting.

MDS how to:
* For the layout I added the circle punch in MDS and re-sized it to 2 1/2" (the same size as our largest 2 1/2" hand held circle punch)
* I then added the greetings over the circle
* Next, copy it over and over on the 8 1/2x11 page
* Once the greetings were all spaced out to fit the 2 1/2" circle punch I went back and deleted the circle
* I printed the greetings on my home computer and used the  2 1/2" circle punch to cut them out! Quick and easy!

I will be creating a few more of these tonight with my 6 year old. Her last day is tomorrow and I can promise I will be just as emotional! After all, she is moving on to grade two! 

I hope you are all enjoying the week and the excitement (and emotions) of the end of the school year and the beginning of Summer!

Thank-you for visiting my blog. Have a creative day!
