Dance teacher thank you's

Whew!!  The last week of school into the first week of summer have been busy and full of joys and sorrow too.  My oldest daughter was elected to the student body as "historian" and she received 4 academic awards too!  The sad news is that our cat passed away suddenly the 2nd day after school let out - apparently he had a heart murmur and died suddenly from cardiac failure.  He was a lover boy and is deeply missed.  I did want to share with you some of the projects I made as thank you's for some of the special people in our lives.  Today I am sharing the thank you project I made for all of my daughters' dance teachers (minus myself of course and yes I teach them too:-)  I got the pail and garden stake from the dollar spot at Target about a month ago.  Both the word "dance" and the stick figure ballerina are from the Silhouette Store and are cut out of white vinyl.   I gave each teacher a bucket and put a plant in it (usually a tomato plant).  We used the 3x3 dance cards I made awhile back and added some variety of chocolate goody with the card in a bag.  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a blessed day!!
