To the end of a SWEET summer!

last weekend before school begins!!! WOW!! can't believe it's almost over.... the summer flew on by soooooo fast! it has been such a wonderful summer and DD1 enjoyed going to her daily summer pals program for the last month and a half... last week friday was their very last day of pals, and all of her group leaders were amazing with the 2nd graders and she personally enjoyed having these girls and guys lead her this summer... we knew an end of summer gift/treat would be the sweetest way of giving thanks for a fabulous summer!

me being on hiatus awfully forgot that it was the last week and had to whip out some treats the night before... guess i was extremely trapped in between my commitments, not paying attention to the days that just passed on by and assuming i still had time... think again Kris!! but like many other things that suddenly happen, i'll do my best to pull it off and in this case, i did!
very easy and quick gift giving... filled a cellophane bag with some yummy tummy treats... used SU!'s top not die to cut out some bag toppers and the SU! square lattice embossing folder for some texture.... printed out some words on the comp, cut it out with circle nesties that is layered on the scallop nesties... punched some flowers using scraps and tadduh!! all done... =D
just a close up of the bag toppers.... every year the grades get to choose a name for their group... DD1's group called themselves the "STUNNAHZ"... i can't remember the other ones except the menehunes (i think it was the kindergarten group) that stood out as such a cute name...

wow, can you believe i've posted every day this week?! i amaze myself... LOL... anyway... hubby is going fishing tonight and i'm planning on hitting as much crafting as my hands and eyes can handle... oh i hope it's a productive night! there is so much to do....

gonna be MIA tomorrow as it is the official last day of summer break and i've still got lots to do before DD1 goes back to school on Monday and the Lollipop Craft girls return from break as well... so i won't be posting any sharing (saving for next week), but come back here on Monday for a very SWEET celebration you DON'T want to MISS!!!! Really! you don't want to miss it!

going to bed now... thanks for popping in and thanks for all the beautiful comments this week and always!! Have a fantastic weekend friends!! see yah laters!!


  1. Such a sweet way to say thank you! You are just so creative girl!
    I can't believe your girls are going back to school already, school doesn't start here until August 30. Summers really do go by too fast!

  2. glad you finished them on time! enjoy the rest of your kid's summer with them!

  3. What a fun and sweet way of saying "thanks" to your daugther's teachers for the summer. I can't believe that her summer is over already. We don't start school here until Aug. 31st. Have a fun last weekend of the summer!

  4. Hi Kris. You are just the sweetest. I love how devoted you are to doing little treats for your kids' schools and every other thing that they do. I am sure that everyone just loves getting one of your sweet bags. Don't run yourself too ragged. I hate that summer is coming to an end as it seems like it just started. Have a great day off. Hugs, Lisa

  5. Hey you! Awesome treatst there. I made some treats for my son's Leaders/Jr. Leaders but didn't take a pic. Too last minute! Hope you're ready to send the girls back to school. I'm not . . . seems like summer was too short.

  6. Polka dots just say "happy" to me and your card made me smile. It is such a cheerful card, a reflection of the maker I'm sure. Thank you for putting me in the mood to to my room!


Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your wonderful and sweet comments keep me going! Thank you so very much!! Have a blessed crafting day! Hugs, Kris
