JUGS #99 Back to School!!

Hello everyone from Gimpy. Why Gimpy? Well I managed to tear my Achille's tendon last Friday night so I've been sort of hibernating in my chair since then. I'm now in a "boot" and not having to use crutches as my only means of getting around.  The icing on the cake was the walloping big cold I got (from the ER I'm sure). Thought I had pneumonia at one point. BUT I'm on the mend and managed to rummage up a quick project for this week's Just Us Girls' challenge. It was ONCE only up the stairs to my craft room to do this.

JUGS wants you to make a template with some sort of Back-to-School theme. I used to be a teacher and still work for a school district so I thought I'd start the year off with a box of a few thank you notes for my Tech Literacy Coaches. (I still have to make the 2nd set).  They do so much to help our teachers with technology - I wanted to appreciate them as well as they start up another hectic school year.

SO now here's my box holding the cards...  (A2 card box template from SCS)


Paper by PTI, Stamp: Vintage Picnic by PTI, Sentimental Occasions stamp set by MTME, buttons, felt leaves, pearls and twine - that pretty much wraps up the supply list. This is a side shot of the box. Here are the cards inside -a nice variety of colors and "baskets" for any thank you occasion.

One more look at the top of the box.

Ok girls - that's it for now - I'm fair exhausted and need my nap. Hope you'll play along this week. Be sure to visit our Design Team, too! Have a great weekend!

Hugs n Smiles!

"Gimpycakes" (My DT gals call me Pammycakes so for now I'm calling me "Gimpycakes" or just plain old "StampinPam"

Sure sorry to hear about your "owey" and a cold to top it.

It certainly didn't hurt your creatable talent though. Great job!
