i could be a responsible blogging-type person and put each note in its own entry but in the interest of getting these notes from queue to post, i’m just putting them all together here. i did finally create a watermark (and use it!) on a few of these. and i caved and bought the edge punch du jour: Fiskars Upper Crest punch. i love the shape of the curly bracket (also known as a brace)! and it was 45% off!
this card was sent along in the lunch that followed the H1N1 vaccination extravaganza at school. celebrate your vaccination!
here scooby-doo helps showcase the note. which is just a corner from an 8×8 sheet from the retro collection of scrapbooking papers.
practicing the white embossing on some swiss-dotted kraft…it was in the “use it up” stack.
this note is stamped on the back as well. the pic of the whole card did not turn out and i was too lazy to reset after downloading the pics. love those trees!
this is today’s note. last night was our parent-teacher conference. the first half of the conference was student-led where she got to show us papers she was proud of and read a letter she wrote detailing things she loves about 5th grade, things she’s learned and things she feels she needs to improve on. must brag a little here: the two math papers she shared were 106%-ers…one a worksheet and one a chapter test! i’m sure the lunch notes have something to do with it! 😉
the sad thing (or happy?) is that she has started buying her lunches some days. she still wants a note every day but for now they can be no larger than 2.25 sq and not too layered or they won’t fit in her coin purse. that makes things a little easier for days i’m short on time, i guess. thanks for stopping by!
