Watermelon Goodie Bags....


Happy Summer

I am so fortunate to have my summers off. I love this time to recharge the ole batteries, spend a bit more time with the family, craft a bit more, stay up later, and get up whenever I want. No rigid schedule. No homework. Just sunshine and pool water to soak up. I know in the blink of an eye August will be here. I will soon be awaiting my new classroom of students...writing lesson plans, and preparing bulletin boards. But for now....I am going to enjoy my very happy summer. 


I created this lil' bag toppers with my Cricut and the new CCR Exclusive, Bag Toppers! (How appropriately named!)  ; ) 

I used pink and a lime green paper for a fresh pretty look.  The sentiment is an SRM sticker that I placed on vellum and cut out to create a sort of banner. I also added black Martha Stewart glitter to the seeds.  Even seeds need a little sparkle! ; )
I added some ribbon, lime green twine, and a pink flower.  The center is a new rhinestone by Queen and Co. Love the faceted look of it! 
I am off to see my fellow teachers for lunch today.  It will be great to see them and catch up with our doings this summer!
By the way.....CHA is next week.  I will be working the JustRite booth.  Anyone heading out?  I'd love to see you!  
Have a great weekend my friends!

It's funny...my husband is a teacher, too, but somehow his July is the busiest month of the year! LOL! He does a summer school program for inner city kids and works so much on the following year, that he is happy to get back to a schedule when school starts! HA! Your treat bags are FABULOUS! I love them!

These are so pretty, I think I missed this cart somehow! I love the pink & green color combo, the twine really looks good & so do the sparkly seeds. I'm trying to keep my eyes closed when I go in to the stores now....school supplies are popping up.....I tell myself maybe if I don't see them, school won't be able to find me when it starts in the fall!!! ;)

What a great project. I love making stuff like this for my students. I am thinking about what to make for our return to school - and I love this topper. Thanks for the inspiration.
