Many Thanks....and the winner is!!!!

Wow, school is out's almost hard to believe. In appreciation for how much my girls' teachers have done for them (and all their students), I created a few handmade items for them! First up we have some cards, not only for their teachers, but the secretaries and also their bus driver!

Pencil holders were a must!!!

Then I thought, clipboards are such a cool idea!! Clipped to the board is a patterned paper notepad.

But I went even further than that! I added a piece of acrylic to the back and attached them by ribbons at the top and Velcro closures at the bottom. That way they can open it up and add papers and pictures an extra bonus, acrylic makes a great dry-erase surface!!! How cool is that???
Then I used up lots of scraps from the cool patterned paper and shaped brads I purchased to make some super easy bookmarks!!!
To top it off I decorated some over sized wooden clips and added a picture!
I hope they feel super appreciated.....cause they are!!!!
So are you ready to see who won my huge blogaversary giveaway??? The odds were pretty good for those that left comments in the last week. I wrote the 4 names down on papers, sat them in front of Shaylie.....and let her pick one!
