Pre-K Year End Celebration Picnic

Hi everyone... I hope everyone had a good weekend and I hope you had an awesome monday.   This weekend it was a little hectic for me. I had two celebrations and today was my son's pre-k year celebration picnic at his school. I was a little tied up with work back up on posting... so only now I was able to sit down and type a few lines. Since my son is about to finish school the school had a little celebration today and I wanted to give something for the kids and the teachers off course.  I have been thinking of what to make or give to the teachers and since she will be on vacation I wanted to give her something useful and this is what I made. 

For the first gift, I bought a stir and sip cup and zebra pattern duck tape sheet. Using my cricut expression I cut the name at 3" and just peeled it from sheet and attached it to the cut. 

For the second gift, I made a Hand Sanitizer holder. 

Recipe for holder
Close to my heart Mayberry kit (you can purchase from me thru here)
 and SP and Company Mini Creations I Stamp set, you can also purchase it here.

  So to match my holder, I created a matching card. 

Now for the kids :0) 

Using my cricut (have I told that I love my cricut?)  
I created goodie bags. 

For this I used the following: 

 Sweet treats cartridge for the Ice Cream Cones and 
 Elegnt Edges Cartridge for the tags

wooohhhooo.. this has probably been the longest post ever.
 but I hope that you loved my creativity and brought you some inspiration. 

Have a wonderful day everyone. 
Be sure to view my website here for you to see my other post for today.
