End of the school year …

20 May

I’m sad that 1 of my children is graduating preschool … the end of his 1st formal school experience, the end of some of his 1st friendships, the end of some closer adult relationships he has built with his teachers.

There is also some degree of excitment about starting kindergarten in the fall – new teachers, new school, new friends, “new toys”, new learnings, a new beginning of being a “big boy” … I suppose there will be many more ends and beginnings to come.

But don’t forget to thank the teachers who make your children’s school experience a memorable one. Here is one of the cards I made for his teachers.

Background patterned paper is from Karen Foster School Collection. Journaling lines on the white cardstock is part of the Impression Obsession Cover-a-card notebook stamp. The pencil is part of the October Afternoon report card clear stamp collection and is embossed with  Ranger super fine black embossing powder and colored with Copic markers (Y04, E00, E31, C03). Sentiment is diecut using my Silhouette machine.

Have a happy scrappy summer.
