She's An American!

Our fabulous Science Teacher is from Holland, and she officially became an American citizen, this week! Of course, the fantastic Second grade team had to make her something! Krista had the great idea of getting her a ton of "American" food items, Christianna went shopping for us, and I put it all together into an American basket!

 We filled it with all sorts of American treats! Some of the treats include: everything you need to make Smores, Cracker Jacks, Vermont Maple Syrup, Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, New England Clam Chowder, beer, mini flags, and of course an apple pie!

I used my Gypsy to make the "signs." The red doily is from Cherry Limeade, the blue circle is from Stand and Salute, the pie is from From My Kitchen, and the letters are from Winter Woodland.

I also embossed the letters with the Tim Holtz Notebook folder, popped up the apple pie, and then taped them onto dowels (that I had my super hubbie cut for me!).

I stuck them into the basket and added a super glittery red star, and ribbon to the handle.
Congrats Herma, we adore you!

I know that this might not be the place to leave this but I am new to all of this and I have a Cricut Expression. Can you email me privately and help me get started and stuff. I love what I see on your blog.
