This week has been Teacher Appreciation week! Being a kindergarten here in Brisbane Australia, I love that everyone can get a chance to celebrate all the amazing work that my fellow teachers across the world do. In the state where I live all kindergarten classes are lucky enough to have a full time teacher aide! My aide, Fiona has been working with me for 5 years now and I consider her the second teacher in our room as she makes such an impact on my student’s learning. I wanted to dedicate a special layout to her! What better way than to create a layout using the delicious bright and cheery Color Fresh collection.
I started with that fun number base pattern paper ” Counting On You”collection from the Color Fresh , I then trimmed a piece of white American Crafts cardstock to 10×10 and adhered it to the background.
I then cut that fun Super Star cut file from Paige Evans with some more white cardstock and tucked my photo underneath. I then took some of the Color Fresh Ephemera and stickers from the Color Fresh Sticker book and added them in, under and around the cut file to add some color and texture to my layout!
I took another of Paige’s cut files the Layered butterfly which I cut with Bazzil Colored cardstock that matched the colors in the Color Fresh collection and added it in place of the letter “a” for the word star. I love the texture it creates.
Finally I added my journaling using some strip journaling and finished with some of the Color Fresh Clear Stamps and a couple of splashes of Black Colorshine. I love this layout and I love the friendship that we have formed over the last 5 years. I really couldn’t do my job without her!
