Thanks, Teacher

I come from a family of teachers. It is a wonder that I am not a teacher myself! (I pondered it for a while there). Teacher's Apple is one of my most-used Papertrey Ink sets. Not only can I use it to make gifts for all my family members that are teachers, many of them request gifts for their teacher friends as well. My mom commissioned a little something from me for a friend who is being transferred to another school.

When I first saw Geny Cassady's frame and card set that she made during the Teacher's Apple countdown, I loved it. It has inspired many a teacher gift and was perfect for what my mom needed.

Remember, you can always click on the photo for a larger view :)

The frame is an inexpensive 4" by 6" from JoAnn's. The background was inspired by Betsy Veldman's vintagelicious cards she made for the Vintage Picnic countdown challenge. The apples are a la Melissa Phillips. I just love the addition of that little flower. I paired the frame with a Ginger Apple scented candle with coordinating tag (love those pinking circle nestabilities).

Short and sweet today. All the project details are below. Thank you for stopping by - I hope your evening is fantastic!
