Your The Best Tag!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your day is going great!  The weather warmed up this weekend and I thinking Spring may be here!  Early for us! You never know last year it snowed on May 1st and no I am not kidding (It did melt the next day though!)  On Sunday I had to run out and get Ariel a new spring coat and splash pants!  And rain boots for Carter!  I didn't mind, I got Ariel the cutest coat and Carter frog rain boots!  Ariel still fits last year's boots but I would have bought the lady bug ones if they fit, they just about did, they were so cute I considered getting them anyways but I guess I wouldn't be the best mom if I had her squeeze her feet in them no matter how cute they are!  :>  The forecast for this week is unbelievable!  I don't remember the last time we had a spring like this in March and I am holding my breath that it's here to stay!

Yesterday was parent teacher conferences!  Ariel brought home a great report card, subjects she had some difficulty in went up, everything was great marks!  We are really proud of her!  We love her school and her teacher.  I made some chocolate chip cookies and packaged a few up for her!  Parent teacher conferences are long and can be tiresome so I thought a treat would be appreciated!I made a tag to go with it:


Why don't my cookies look as good in these photos as they do in real life?  Hmmm oh well they tasted delicious!  Mrs J loved them!  She told me that now it's just her and her husband so she doesn't bake.  And she said that no one has ever brought her anything before!  I am really glad I did!  At her classroom in the hallway the roof is leaking and there are lots of huge garbage bins to collect the water!  And the power went out 10 minutes before the end of the school day!  :>  

I stamped the alphabet background by Hero Arts in frost white ink by colorbox onto kraft cardstock and made a tag from it, stamped the sentiment from Sending Smiles by Hero Arts onto the red cardstock strip.  Isn't this sentiment perfect for a teacher?  Added the punched strip to the bottom.  :>  I whipped this up pretty quickly but am happy with how it turned out!

Well I am off!  I am hoping to be a better blogger I have lots to share!  And I really want to stop by your blogs and leave some love!  :>
