And a BIG thank you to cookiestamper
For sharing your teacher quotes that saved me some MAJOR typing time.
I wanted to make something super special and unique for my twin sons’ kindergarten teachers—yes I made two of these. The time spent I cannot even sum up quite honestly, but the satisfaction and joy of completing these projects is priceless. I have always been my own worst critic and never thought anything I’ve done was worthy of posting. I am very proud of these and wanted to share my end projects especially because the three posters above had a major role in these books. I thank you openly here for your encouragement and generosity in sharing your creations. I’m not exactly a tech babe, so if links and pictures actually appear, I will be buying a lottery ticket. My sons have the two finest kindergarten teachers here on Long Island. Happy Summer to all! Thanks for peeking at my work.

Every lil piece you have added is so touching! I love how you have used the Top Note. (and your son is adorable!) The tiny tags are a great touch, and I love that you have the metal embelli that reads 'success'. Precious!

I am so anal, it is ridiculous. What I did for the top scallop tabs for each page, was stamp an image on the front that began with 'A' and continued the alphabet A-Z with the ABC images that are retired AND on the back of the scallop, 'Kindergarten' was spelled out. It was very time consuming, but I thought really appropriate for a Kindergarten teacher. On the back of the tag or top note, the child's thoughts were completed by them at home for the various questions or statements. I used the My ABC's wheel to wheel a little piece of cardstock for them to write their name so I could snail it down below their photo. Again, I thank all of you for your time in commenting on my very first post. I really make an effort to comment on projects I look at as I know how much it means to hear some positive feedback. I thank you for your time.
