Exploring Cricut Day with Hello Kitty

I seem to be running a little behind today, but I am pleased to say that I have lots of my lesson plans done for this upcoming week. I woke up early and have been planning lots of new activities for many subjects. Since I haven't taught 4th grade in many years and the materials are also new, I have to coordinate the lessons with the current skills. I think it is going to be a productive week with lots of learning. I am hoping that after the next week I should be comfortable with the new program and lessons will be going smoothly, so I can return to crafting on a regular basis.
Today's Exploring Cricut card was created for a special little girl. She adores Hello Kitty, but who doesn't?!?! I think she is going to like it since it has been personalized with her name and the pink background paper is embossed. Kids just love the feel of that raised paper.
