Thank You Bags

This is my daughters last year at her Elementary school.  She has been there since kindergarten and soon will be promoted to Junior High (sigh!).  I will miss the staff.  I will especially miss those who I have known since that first day of Kindergarten.  Those special people not only have helped my daughter grow and learn but have also taught me a few things.  To show my appreciation I have made these wonderful ladies goodie bags.  Due to the Arizona heat and the effect it has on chocolate I decided to put taffy, tootsie rolls, etc in my bags.  For some I also enclosed a gift card.  I love how they turned out.  Simple yet sweet!!

For the "Thanks" I used the Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy.  I LOVE this cartridge.  I cut the die with my Cricut and then used the coordinating stamp (Both from Close To My Heart).

I also made "Fun In The Sun" tags.  I used one of these tags to write a personal note on and enclosed it in the goodie bag.  These were made from the Cricut cartridge Accent Essentials and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Though somewhat sad to see the elementary years come to a close I am ready for my daughter to start the next chapter.  We will start that chapter with a fun filled summer! I hope that everyone is having a great day! See you back here real soon.

This post participated in the Wonderful Wednesday Link Party #4 at Printabelle.
