Teachers gift+ Fancy Pants giveaway!

Some time back Fancy Pants & Maya Road teamed up, sending the FP design team a bunch of goodies to play with. I received this cute apple album which as it turned out was perfect timing for my end of term teachers gift. Together with the Off to School collection & created this cute mini album.

Gr1 mini book teachers gift by Kim Watson
For the cover where I layered some of the  goodies from the 'Design Elements' pack & 'Chipboard Elements sheet'. Love how the glittered die cut transparency elements work so well with the rest of the collection.

Photo pages inside the mini
Totally inspired by a project by my buddy Amy, I took her lead & included a photo of each child from their official school photos.

Personalized pages by each child.
Each child was given a page to draw on & include a little note for teacher.

I wrote a little note for myself on the back thanking Mrs Butler for the love and care she took with my little guy & rest of the Gr1 class. It was a labor of love but it got the desired effect. Mrs Butler was blown away & said she will never forget her G1 class of 2011 because of the sweet notes they all created for her.

On the subject of Fancy Pants, they have a new release!! April showers definitely brought along the May flowers in Fancy Pants Designs Time for Spring Collection.
