Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #8 - Teachers


When God created teachers,
He gave us special friends
To help us understand His world
And truly comprehend

The beauty and the wonder
Of everything we see,
And become a better person
With each discovery.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special guides
To show us ways in which to grow
So we can all decide

How to live and how to do
What's right instead of wrong,
To lead us so that we can lead
And learn how to be strong.

Why God created teachers,
In His wisdom and His grace,
Was to help us learn to make our world
A better, wiser place.


This poem by Kevin William Huff shows us why teachers are so important in this world. I'm a teacher myself and love to mentor and guide the 7th graders that I teach. The end of the school year is coming up soon. Show some love to all of those teachers out there.

This week over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog we are showing that We Love and Support Our Teachers!  This week's challenge calls for you to create something for a special teacher using an apple shape somewhere on your project.

This week I made a craft supply gift bag for Rachel's art teacher. I'm going to fill it with paint, brushes, glitter, glue and other art supplies. I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge to make the apple. I also used the Speaking of School cartridge to make the pencil.  I then added school themed embellishments from K & Company.

So click on over and upload your project. Can't wait to see it!

Have a Creative Week!
