BBTB-Mug Challenge and Teacher Appreciation Week

Wow what a CRAZY week I am having...all I can say is less than 2 more weeks I hope things calm down! (Ok...all vented...LOL)

So this was my first week on the BBTB design team...these ladies are amazing! If you haven't checked out the BBTB site I highly recommend it.

This week we were challenged to use the "mug" cut from the Christmas Cheer Cartridge...here is my take on it....



So this week is teacher appreciation week and we have been blessed with some wonderful teachers this year! It's hard to believe that another year is almost over. I am grateful for all of the teachers that take the time to educate our children...I know it is a tough job!

After seeing what Regina Easter created this week with the "mug" cut from the Christmas cheer cartridge playing off of the word "espresso" I had to do it myself! So I "borrowed" the play on "espresso"idea and made this bucket for Jackson's teacher.






The front of the bucket is made from vinyl. (yes, lately I am addicted to vinyl) These buckets were just released @ target in the dollar spot (RUN! these are awesome buckets for a dollar!). I added in a Starbucks mug that you can sign and then bake, some coffee goodies and a gift card to Starbucks. This gift came together so quickly and was really well received...I will definitely make this again!

For all Jackson's other teachers I altered a few large candy bars...here is one of the candy bars I altered....



The notebook paper and the green paper are from Scrappin' Sports and More...if you haven't checked out their new lines...I highly recommend it.

I have a ton more projects in the "works" so lots more to share here in the next day or so :)
