Thankful for you

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone and Happy Sunday!
I hope your having a wonderful day~
I am a little behind these days with the end of the year things going on with our Granddaughter, Arya. She had a cute preschool graduation concert two days last week, a field trip day, which the kiddos had a blast and then she spent Thur/Fri with us. It was a busy week! 
 I wasn't able to get in my craft room much but I did squeeze in a quick tag to add the Teacher gifts that Arya was giving to them. 
The tag is created with Jaded Blossoms Luggage Tag Dies. The papers are from Echo Park Bundle of Joy collection. The leaves are Frantic Stamper Asst Foliage Dies from Scrapy Land.  The pretty flowers are Jaded Blossoms Flower Dies and the #1 is Jaded Blossoms Alphabet Dies and the Teacher is stamped with Jaded Blossoms Happy Hello (add on) stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Jaded Blossoms Supersized Thank You  stamp set. 
I made some handmade lotion (with the help of some amazing friends) using essential oils. I love how it turned out and made a 8 jars to give out. I added a cute little flower to the lid to match the tag. I used Jaded Blossoms Scallop Circle Die and then the Flower Dies for the flower. I tied on some pretty SU ribbon and added a cute little tag with My Craft Spots~Tiny Tags Metal Dies and the sentiment is the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. (no longer available) 
Arya was excited to fill the cute insulated bag with a few treats, an asst note set, pen set and handmade lotion...zipped it up and added the cute tag to the outside~
We can't thank the Teachers enough for all they do.....they are amazing!! She had a wonderful year at Queen Of Peace and is looking forward to Kindergarten next year :) 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Double D Challenges Flowers Galore
2.) DL.ART June Linky Challenge
3.) Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #319 Anything Goes
4.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #191 Anything Goes 
This was preschool graduation day~
