Thank You To Our Teachers Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the Thank You To Our Teachers Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from Jen's Blog then you are on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog for a visit and want to hop along with us, start from the beginning with Memories with Jen. This is a week long hop and we will be posting on 3 separate days. (June 5th, 8th and 11th) Please make sure you hop on those days or throughout the week to see all the wonderful inspiration on what to make our teachers for thank you gifts. If you would like to see my projects from day one, click Here.

Today I have decided to share 2 different types of clipboards.  The first one is all school theme that I made for one of Victoria's teachers, Mrs. DePalma three years ago.  Even though I did it a while ago, I thought it was appropriate to share today.  When you see the next clipboard, you will see how my scrapping has changed over time.  Big Difference!  lol

The second clipboard is not a traditional school theme in my eyes.  I wanted to due something fun and colorful in a different way.  I hope the teacher will be able to use this in her classroom or at home with her family.  I love the summer colors. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I love comments and new followers.  Thank you to all my current followers for coming back and reading my posts.  I will be giving away 3 blog candies, one for each post of the hop. I will pick the winners on June 12, one winner from the comments from each post day. Make sure to hop on over to Kim and Pamela's awesome blog: next.

I love your clipboards! I gave one to my son's teacher years ago and she still uses it daily which was flattering to me. Now my daughter has the same teacher this year and I'm trying to top that gift! :)

Both of them are fantastic, but the second one, I really love! The colors and embellishment are just great! Nobody can steal these clipboards because they are so individualized! Great idea! TFS and for the chance to win!

I would be sooo happy to win this book, as Anne was the first Historical Fiction writer I ever read! Now it's my favorite genre! Thank you, Anne, for opening up a whole new world to me. I would be honored to receive this book!
