Teachers present - a new idea

So what do you do when your eldest son goes away for a week with school, you've finished packing your second son's case to go away on Wednesday, the weather is absolutely awful for July, you've done the housework ........................... you make a thank you present for your daughter's teacher.

An email this morning from TV Weekly (an americal internet show) with a great new idea - expandable boxes. So having had a look at it before work this morning, I decided that having not really scrapbooked for ages I would have a go at this.

And here is the result:




I have used some papers from the costco papers i bought a while back which I am loving along with some scraps of chipboard I found. The expander in the centre is made from some 12 x 12 card for the sides and some navy A4 card I had laying around.

I really enjoyed making this, it was a challenge but an enjoyable one, which although wasn't scrapping, was in it's own way and exceptionally theraputic experience and hopefully has got my mojo back (which is just as well as I am away next weekend with the Leeds Paper Dolls for a weekend retreat!!)
