Hello friends!  I'm really excited to be participating in my first-ever blog hop.  I couldn't resist when I saw the call for participants.  I always like to do something to send my students off into the summer with a good feeling about the last year.  After all, I will have them again in my classes next year, so it really is a good idea.  

Choosing a project is always a challenge.  I'm teaching high school so my project can't be too "cutsie" but  it has to be a little bit cute or it isn't worth bothering with.  I decided to make boxes to put treats in and cut them on my Expression using an MTC file.  Then I decorated four boxes for the boys, bet you can guess which ones?  Of course, the tape measures with eyes...  I had picked the tape measures up at a dollar store in the teaching area.  They're intended to be calendar markers, but I really like the way they turned out.  The boys will get a kick out of them.  The girls boxes are all different.  I couldn't decide on one design, so I just used whatever I found in my stash left-overs.  Actually, kind of fun, because I had forgotten that I had chipboard butterflies!  Will have to see what else I can do with them.

I hope you're enjoying this hop.  Have a great weekend!
