Back to.... School!

HELLO! I'm finally back from our European travels! Yay! The trip was amazing, but I am glad to be home :) I know you all must have been going through a bit of withdrawl from my blog, lol! No worries I already have the crafting itch... so I've already started crafting away! Yes, it's back to REALITY... and as you might have already noticed I have made some changes to the the appearance of the blog... I guess that will always be changing and under construction! But what do you think so far...better right?

So yesterday was the first day of school for the kids... Their school actually started last week, but we were still away. I don't think they minded at all missing a few days! So here they are just before leaving for school. Maia is in grade 1 and Tomas is in grade 3. I can't believe that they are this big already! Time just keeps flying!


So here are the treats I made for the teachers this year. What teacher doesn't like apples? Especially when they a filled with chocolates?! I hope they like them... I love how they turned out!



Here is a closer look, aren't they adorable?!


The files for the 3D Apple come from SVG Cuts MISS BAKER'S CLASSROOM SVG KIT. I can't say enough good things about their files. Mary is amazing at what she does! The paper I used is from Fancy Pants Designs, their Off to School collection.

Hope you liked them too!
Happy crafting :)

I am so jealous that you just returned from Europe. I hope you had a great time!

Those apples are adorable! I bet the teachers who received them absolutely LOVED them.

I saw something similar to this before, but these are even cuter! The buttons are such a nice touch! Stopping by via Super Link Party, having a hop at my blog too if you'd like to join: http://jessica-healthymommyhealthybaby.blogspot.com/2012/09/sweet-saturday-20-quinoa-smoothie.html.

what if we do not have a cutting machine? only have Sizzix...do you sell pdf of your school set to make for my two youngest grandchildren?

Ilda Dias said...

Thanks for stopping by Christina! Will visit soon!

Ilda Dias said...

Hi Lauren! Unfortunately for these projects you do require a cutting machine. I purchase most of my files from SVG Cuts. Click on the side link to get you to their page! Sorry, but hope that helps!
