A Teacher's Gift

Last week, eldest Oompa Loompa graduated from Kindergarten, (proud Mummy moment). By the time I got a photo with him, he was into pulling funny faces - just LOVE that!!

His teacher has been an absolute star, we all love her to bits and are going to really miss her.

So, I wanted to make her a little something to say a big thank you. She was over the moon with the gift.

It was pretty simple to make. I found this canvas flower oil painting at the thrift store for $3. I thought it would be the perfect starting point for my creation.

I then added some paper to the edges - trying hard not to cover up the flowers, painted it, stamped it and added tons of butterflies with good old glue dots.

I secretly got all the children in the class to write their name on a butterfly. Blue for the boys and yellow for the girls. I then cut up a class photo into the shape of a butterfly and added that too.

I was so happy with the end result. I just love it when a plan comes together. Have a happy Monday.
