Kindergarten Graduation - fun all around

 My youngest, Abby, completed Kindergarten this afternoon.  She was blessed with both a fantastic teacher, and a very small class this year.  The teacher complimented the class numerous times about how special they were.  Mommy, too, fell in love with many of her classmates as the several had been in preschool with Abby, and the small class size allowed me to spend more time in the classroom.  The students were all very spirited and I wanted something fun and spirited to match their personalities for a little graduation gift!  I found these adorable totes at Michael's for $1.00 (plus had a 20% off coupon) and had been collecting little things, when I found a good price, all year to fill them with!  Each item, was a summer necessity:  bubbles, mini-play dough, a little Lego kit, sidewalk chalk and bright summery suckers. I wrote each child's name on their tote with a Silver Sharpie and together, Abby and I made and stamped tags for the totes with the equally summer color inspired paper Dream Pop.  We then created a stamp cluster with the A1139 Congrats Graduate (LOVE THIS STAMP SET--it is for sure a must have!) and stamped the cluster with Z2105 Black Exclusive Ink.  We cut the tag twice with the Artiste' Cricut Cartridge and popped the stamped pink piece up on 3-d foam. Abby signed each tag herself.
