Softpencil Thursday

Good Afternoon! I'm home from the first official day of preschool and am happy to report that it went A OKAY! I only had one upset little man but after a few minutes and with the help of his lovey we were good to go! He even put his lovey away half way through the morning which is an awesome step!!

Enough about that you are here to see my Softpencil Thursday creation. Today we got to use a fabulous new image, A GIFT FOR MY TEACHER. Well as the name implies I had to make a little gift for the teacher.
It's a smartie holder which I found on Dawn's blog. It's so easy and fun to make. Last night we made Halloween ones at my stamp club. I'm also making birthday ones for my preschoolers.

This is why I had to wait to take my photo...I added Glossy Accents to the apple. Just adds a little somethin' somethin', you know?

On the inside I added a little bit of pattern paper and a little greeting. Then I can add short note of thanks for all the teacher does!

So whatcha think? Stop by the Softpencil Blog to see all the new back to school images. Plus there are papers that would be awesome to use as well as clip art and stationary! I'm sure you'll find something that you'll love!!
