Farewell Ms Brooks

It is always sad to lose a teacher htat has been a stalwart of a school for so very long. Sadly, my son's teacher retired recently. She has endured taught Dylan for 2 years (yr 2 and this year...year 5), so I thought her parting gift should be all that she has meant to us as a fmily and as an educator. Once again, everything was co-ordinated and it sought of grew and took on a life of it own. This is what she received...



It consisted of a diary, a candle, a desk compendium and a card. (Be warned...lots of pics following....)

The diary....



The Candle....


The desk compendium, complete with calendar, monogramed paper and butterflies....



The desk set is the same as the one Debbie P made here.

And last but not least the card....


I am so very happy with the way this set worked out. As you can see, there are MANY elements to this set, so I will put the main ones in the "stuff used" at the end.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden DSP (ret), Whisper White
Ink: (SU) Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, Old Olive
Stamps: (SU) Inspired By Nature, Life Definitions, Lovely Letters Alphabet and TCM - Fly Free
Other bits: Nestabilities Ovals and Scalloped ovals, SU Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die

Gorgeousness personified! Lovely set indeed; as a teacher myself I know I would be tickled pink to receive something so great and know that a lot of thought and effort went into it. You will make a teacher very happy!
