Birthdays in our Office

Hello Crafty Friends,

What a week it has been! FCAT is FINALLY over! Now we have to wait about 5 - 6 weeks to get the scores. Not sure why it takes so long to get all the results since so much is done on the computer now-a-days, but we shall wait (not necessarily patiently).

This past week we also had two birthdays in our front office...the Assistant Principal's birthday and our Data Clerk. The Data Clerk turned 50 and the office was decorated with a wheelchair, a cane, "You are older than"...posters, and everyone wore black. I made her a special treat...

This sketch is from Crazy 4 Challenges.

 I found the 3D coffin treat box at the Silhouette On-line store. I changed the font from RIP to her age. I added two mini candy bars which fit perfectly in the container. I chose a black and white gingham ribbon to coordinate the pieces.

Our AP took the day off, so she didn't get any surprises.

I used this sketch from Just Add Ink

Other Materials:
Various pattern papers
purple cardstock
black gems
flowers (purple, teal, and black/white)
self adhesive pearls
