I am so lucky! I have some great friends! This wonderful card was sent to me from Michelle! Just what I needed to brighten up an awful day! Thanks Michelle!!
Also, on the same day, my BFF Dawn sent me a card as well. She didn't make her card, but I am showing you the card because I think it has great potential!! I think that this could be made.. and I think that I am going to have to try.. so keep watching!!
I am really glad that I have these wonderful ladies in my life! Thanks again!
But now, again, I am "bookless". I have been told that Three Cups Of Tea is good, so I might get that to read next.. unless anyone has any suggestions...

So this was a very emotional show! There had been a bombing in the "Hump Bar", which is the hang out, at the end of last season. This took you through the aftermath. Some twists, but you could see where it was going. Still great show.. My Sunday night MUST!!

Well Friday was Hannah's last day of Elementary school. I figure that since I didn't have the camera (because Pat had it) to take a first day of school picture, I would do the last day picture... So here she is.. The last day at Hillcrest Elementary...
Just as any wonderful Fairy Godmother would.. Dawn was up for all of the excitement!! She was there for graduation to hold my hand and help me through the tears. She spent the day on Friday at school goofing around with Hannah and then to Grand Slam with all the 4th and 5th graders.. OK, she was sitting in the "party room" reading a book, but she was there, forcing cupcakes to the kids...
All things said... it was a pretty great day!!!

This is Lynne, Hannah's advisor to her HAWKS job. (Team Media). Lynne is retiring after 30 years in the Bloomington School District. Hannah was sad.. to say the least. Loads of tears from her. Lynne will be missed, that is for sure!
We can't forget the gang! Hannah's best friend since Kindergarten is Kyla.. The two of them together!! Then we have Shannon, Hannah, Kyla, Ciana, and Kelly...
And last but not least... Tracy.. By far this teacher did more for Hannah than I can express. Hannah really came into her own in the last 2 years with Tracy. She pushed Hannah a lot, but I couldn't have asked for a better fit!
Tomorrow they have their last day! Fun at Grand Slam! Watch for the fun pictures tomorrow!
Today is Graduation... So we decided to take in teacher gifts! These are what we got for Tracy, her teacher. I made the cards, you might remember last weekend. I made the box for them last night. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.. But hey, if not for the last minute, nothing would get done.
This is the gift card holder that I made. Again, same design that I used before. From Michelle's blog. Tracy's favorite colors are pink and brown, so.. well naturally...
Then the other teachers got Lindt truffles.. I really didn't want to try to wrap these, or get a bag, so I just made a little band to go around. They turned out really cute!

Then this little number is a gift card holder. I got the directions from Michelle's blog. Very cute and quick! Easy Peesy Lemon Squeezy! Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky. The ribbon is from Target $1 bin!
This one is on Groovy Guava and Perfect Plum! I really like this color combo too! Thanks to Dawn for making me use more of the Groovy Guava!
Hannah said she wanted an IPOD... I said NO!! Or I think I said that I wouldn't buy it for her! If she wanted an IPOD, she had birthday money and a gift certificate she could use.. And she could buy it herself.. Her 1st reaction was, "WHAT??? YOU WANT ME TO BUY IT MYSELF???"
After much thought, today she bought herself an IPOD Shuffle! PINK!!
Here she is showing it off!
And here is a close up!!
