Back in April, I was honoured to be selected as a Challenge Winner over at Words 2 Craft By and imagine my surprise when an invitation came along with it...
Today, I'm absolutely honoured and thrilled to be one of three guest designers over at Words 2 Craft By Challenge #33~Every Child Deserved a Champion. This theme very much resonates with me, as
Aunty c to my precious niece and nephew, and as a teacher of hundreds students taught over a career spanning many years (I am most definitely a 'veteran' teacher!). As always, Words 2 Craft By offers us a quotation as inspiration:
Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possibly be. Rita Pierson
Yes....this most certainly touches my heart....
Of course, being a teacher, it only seemed 'logical' to create teacher-themed cards/bookmarks, which I passed along to my sister-in-law who will share them with my niece and nephew's teachers. All my images come from Verve's Teachers Count set, Paper Smooches Numbers Dies and Paper Smooches Bookmarks dies:
First, a white-on-white with a pop of 'apple,"
followed by polka-dots on white, with a pop of 'apple'.
A couple of apples for the teacher here...
and a bunch of bookmarks...both big and small...
I hope the joy I felt in creating these comes through loud and clear in the final results! Yes...every child DOES deserve a champion...and I hope that I've been one on a few occasions....
