My Pink Stamper Imagine Challenge

Here is the project I chose to create for the My Pink Stamper Imagine challenge.  I used the Nursery Tales Art cartridge to create this cute little frog sitting on a lilly pad.  I embossed the green layer of the card with the leaves Cuttlebug folder, added glitter for some bling action, and used the My Pink Stamper stamp set.  I was really happy with the way this card turned out.  I hope you like it!!  :)

I finally finished my door!!!!!!

Whewww, well I finally finished my classroom door!!!  I completed the inside and now I finally got to finish the outside of the door.  I used the music notes from the Hannah Montana cartridge.  I took photos of my students during the first week of school and then added their pictures to the stars at the bottom of the music notes.  I used a circle punch to punch out the photos.  It was a lot of fun decorating my classroom door this year.  Our school is hosting a door decorating contest.  There are soooo many fantastic designs and it is really exciting to see everyones creativity!!

I wanted to shine the spotlight on some of the fantastic teachers that I have the privilege to work with.  These teachers are also crafters and have used the Cricut in their classrooms.  This week I wanted to spotlight Kristi Goldsmith.  She teaches third grade at the school where I also teach.  She is an avid "green" teacher and loves to find ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle anything she can to save our planet.  I love the bulletin boards she created for her classroom this year and I wanted to show off her creativity!  Thanks Kristi for sharing!!!!
