For Aunty Joyce

My 2-yr-old son Dean and I attend a free toddler program at Pomaikai Elementary school (the school he will eventually attend as a student here in Kahului) called Families for R.E.A.L. If you live in Hawaii and you have a child age 0-5 yrs old, you really should look into this program. It has been a great resource for Joel and I as first-time parents and a wonderful learning and social development opportunity for Dean. The Spring Session will be ending in late May and I wanted to make a thank you card for Dean's "teacher", Aunty Joyce.

Lauren's Saturday Sketch #30 combined with PTI's Teacher's Apple were perfect for the card and I'll create a matching gift set of some sort in the next few weeks.

Stamps: Teacher's Apple (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip CS; A Walk in the Park DP (SU); Pure Poppy Bitty Dots DP (PTI)
Ink: Pure Poppy (PTI); Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss (SU)
Accessories: Ribbon, dimensionals (SU); Trio of Tags nesties (Spellbinders); button (Basic Grey); hemp twine

I'll be back in a few hours with another SUPER sweet "fruity" project that you definitely do NOT want to miss!!!
