Thank You to Our Teachers Blog Hop - Day 1

Thank You to Our Teachers Blog Hop - Day 1
Welcome to the Thank You to Our Teachers Blog Hop, which will be happening from June 5-11.  LoveBug Creations is honored to join in this great way to show our appreciation to the profession of teaching.

Projects for this hop will be posted on June 5, June 8, and June 11, so this should give all our guests a chance to hop along, be inspired, and have some “crafty” fun.   Hopefully you joined us from Kimmarie  If you’ve just found us, you may want to begin with Jen R

Mama LoveBug won the coin toss and will begin with her project. I hold teaching in the highest regard since I was a teacher in the same school system for 38 years.  I retired a year ago and cherished teaching high school English and social studies; however, I fear that many teachers feel overlooked and under-appreciated today, so it's with a great sense of pride that I feel fortunate to be a part of this hop that sends a shout out to teachers anywhere for their dedication to the profession.

My project is a teacher appreciation desk plaque, which can be hung on the wall or placed on the teacher's desk.  I hope it gives our blog hop guests a source of inspiration - bricks and mortar do not a teacher make; pride in planting seeds of knowledge is how the garden grows best.

Recipe for the Teacher Appreciation Frame
*Use A7 card as base
*American Craft cardstock in white, dark pink, deep blue, and black
*SU embossing folder - Lattice
*SU die cut - Top Note
*Spellbinders scalloped oval and fancy rectangle
*Gel Pen, Corner Chomper, Divine Twine, Pink glitter brad

*2"circle punch for white and black cardstock, offset using brad and twine
*Lots of Love and Respect for Teachers

That is a great plaque! Thank you for the inspiration, definitely a great idea to even just make it into a wall hanging as some teachers just don't have the space on their desk lol. I know my son's wonderful kindergarten teacher does not! Hopping along the blog hop. New follower!
