What a sweet gift to receive from the students. You should put them in a scrapbook for the year with pictures of Chloe. What a treasure to keep! You've been really busy - wow all the cards are amazing. I especially love the little bee. I think it's that adorable paper. :)

WOW!! Dawn you are so amazing! You have created so many wonderful cards here. It would be one thing if they were just your average card but these are all FABULOUS... TOTALLY FABULOUS!! First I love the combination of DP's you used on the first two.. you have a fun card and an elegant one. Then the last two are so fun. The first with the cutout umbrella coming right out of the box and the glossy accented puddle is perfect. And the second with the cutout flowers is an absolute beauty. You are amazing!!
