I stamped something...

It had to happen eventually!

My oldest child starts kindergarten tomorrow. I'm a little freaked out. He's determined that he's not riding the bus, but the police helicopter will be picking him up instead. Oh really? Where does he get this stuff?

We had the opportunity to meet his teacher tonight, so of course I busted out my "best mom of the year" goodies to spoil her before she got to meet my kid. As I was doing the background check on her (you think I'm kidding...), I discovered she has a blog, wherein she stated that she loves cooking Italian food, and has been to Italy several times. AHA! As it happens, my garden is completely overrun with purple & green basil. So, I whipped up this boxy bag, inspired by TexasJodyLynn (mine has different measurements, but it was definitely her idea...), cut a bunch of basil, stuck it in a baggie, and voila, my kid gets straight A's right out of the box. Bag. Boxy bag.
























And here's the matching card


















both of them together















never let it be said that I can't stamp....

Too funny, and something I would totally do as well! I have that stamp set on order, I can't wait for it to arrive.

Great idea, great boxy bag and great card.

Happy first day of Kindergarten!

You're a woman after my own heart. My DD is just 15 months old and I'm already saving cute teacher "goodies". Hehehe

Love the bag and the card. The colors are great!
