Thank you Treats

Hi crafty friends!

   I have a real quick post for you. On Tuesday, at work, I lost my sunglasses on campus. I told my students about it, thinking they must have seen them. Today before school was out I asked them once more, that if they see my glasses to please return them to me. So afterschool 2 of the 5th grade boys went to each classroom on campus and asked teachers if they have found glasses. They finally asked the right teacher and someone found them in the computer lab!

   I was so excited, that I told them that I would bring them a reward today (Friday). So I made this halloween themed money holder and I will put $2 in each one! I hope the boys enjoy their treat!



Happy Hauntings Skeleton @ 3in.

I decided to add googly eyes to my skeleton.


Have a cricutting good day! Don't forget to stop by on Saturday for our Blog Hop! I've made my first video tutorial! See ya then!
