Last Day of School!

I still can't believe it is the last day of school today! That year has gone SO quickly! And so starts the 11 WEEKS of school holidays! Let's just hope we all get through it in one piece! My parents and sister are coming out to visit in a couple of weeks - can't wait to see them! My Dad has been sending my son a dilly countdown of the number of sleeps till they arrive - I don't know who is more excited!! :-)
So, with it being the last day of school today, I spent all of yesterday making the teacher's gifts and cards (why I always leave it till the last minute I have no idea!!!) Anyway, here are 2 of the gifts (the third will have to wait as it is for a Cutting Cafe post at the start of July).
For one of my daughter's teachers - the paper is Echo Park 'Country Drive', the pinwheels are from The cutting cafe file and the bag is filled with Hershey Kisses with sentiments from The cutting cafe on the bottom! I used this week's MCM sketch from ScrapbookSteals for the layout of the card.
 My son's teacher gift - Mr Griffith is his advisory & reading teacher, AND his favorite! His teacher loves everything English - loves the accent and always asks my son if wants a 'cuppa'!! Deb bought me some English tea bags in this adorable typical London Telephone Box tin a few years ago - so I just had to get one the same :-) The card uses a KennyK image which I colored with Prismacolor pencils.
