Staff Appreciation Week Goodies!

Happy Tuesday Blog Friends!! Hope your having a GREAT week!!! :) I have a HUGE post for you! if you make it to the end THANK YOU! :)

Last week was Staff Appreciation Week at school.. I just ADORE the school and am gonna miss EVERYONE so much when Amanda heads to Middle School next year.. I wanted to send in something for everyone on our list that went home! So that is what we did!!  (warning LOTS of photos ahead!)
Challenges listed below I am entering!!

I should add before I go any farther I THINK everything was PTI except the memento ink! LOL!

 Tulips and some picks I made up-

Close-Up of pick-
 Boxes I made up for some of the staff.. Here is the LINK to the Tut. I did my top and sides differently I just cut the PP.. mine wasnt turning out like hers.. easier for me to just cut it and put it on the top and sides!


 I made 9 of them up!

This was inside the boxes.. or something similar.. each was a bit different.. but had some of what is shown below in them! :) Card by Amanda! :)
 Here is Amandas Teachers gift and card!

 These boxes I whipped up for our recess staff!- Just used CS, and scored.. easy peasy!!

 Amanda and I made up these bookmarks for the library staff to hand out to the kids in the reading programs-
 wrapped them and their goodies in this bag .. bow.. and flower! :)

 Finally these are the GUYS treats.. yes I was all out of crafty ideas.. and I figured they are men.. they just want the treats inside! HA HA!!!
THANK YOU so much if you have made it this far!!! :) Challenges I am entering are listed below!
Have a GREAT day!!!!
