I feel like saying "It's here, it's here" again! Why?! This time I would be referring to the weekend! OMG! This had to have been the longest week ever! One of my duties is to do report cards and all it entails short of giving the actual grades! The computer entry, the printing, the reprinting, the reprinting, the reprinting.....yes I meant to say that 3 times! LOL! It can get pretty hectic at times! I also have many other things that keep me going and today, I was smart, I wore tennis shoes (Fridays are casual) and good thing as I felt like "Michelle, the human yo-yo"! I really do love my job, don't get me wrong, I do! I just love being with the kids and the interactions there! The hugs, waves, and "Hi Ms. Hale's" all make it worthwhile! Anyway, on to the most recent project I have done! I have been wanting to make one of these frames and this week I had the opportunity! It's School Counselor week and we have one of the most awesome counselors around! I made her this frame with her name on it and the Bella I ordered because it reminded me of her! She's so fashionable and it looks just like her! She's also my mentor for my running adventures too! I got so many tips for my marathon from her (she's run 5 and is trying to qualify for Boston!) and I wanted her to know how much I appreciate all the stuff she does for me as a friend and a co-worker! Take a look and see what you think!

Here's the frame from a distance so you can see the whole thing! I don't know what I used (I used scraps mostly) except the ribbon is retired SU ribbon, the background was a neat stripe I probably picked up at Michael's, I got the stickers from JoAnnes, the flower from Target Dollar Spot and added a MM square brad to it. I also use the 1" and 1 1/4" circle SU punches and both the large and small tag punches too! I LOVE SU punches! They are simply AWESOME! The alphabet stamps are from SU but have been retired and the stamped image is actually called a "Bella" and I ordered it from a company in Canada that has some really cool images to stamp! I guess I knew most of what I used! LOL!

Here's a close up of the Bella -

I, of course, had to do a card for her! Here's my take on a "Super Counselor" card!

The frame is actually one of the kind that comes with a mat precut for a child's sports pictures - individual and team! I like how it turned out - what do you think?!! Leave me a message! I love to read them!!

Great job on the name frame and the card. I like your use of the tag and circle punches in the frame and the bella looks great! Keep up the good work!

That frame is so cute, bet she loved it! Your blog is fun, the report card reprinting is funny. But then I don't have to do it do I?? LOL
