Pocket Letter Pen Pals

I've always been one to enjoy a handwritten letter. These Pocket Letters combine my passion for scrapbooking/papercrafting and my love of the handwritten.
I will definitely be making more of these in the future.
You just use a pocket page normally used for baseball cards.

Here is how I've filled my pockets

I hope you've enjoyed this little endeavor. 
Stay crafty!

Paper Smooches Gift Tags

On Friday, it snowed a ton here in New Mexico. On Friday, I had to substitute at school. On Friday, I was 10 minutes late to school and had almost gotten into and icy accident. On Friday, the copy machine stapled the two separate tests (for different grades) in a random order. On Friday, I only had four students in one of my 7th grade classes. On Friday, those students took the wonky test and didn't even complain once that they had no clue what the heck the questions were asking!!!
On Friday, I figured out the mistake at the end of the day. Oh boy!

So, on Monday I made these cute little tags for those four students. It was my way of saying, "Thanks for being such troopers and rising to a challenge!"
The BEST THING is that one of the students is obsessed with WALRUSES. What are the chances? I love this PS set!

My Monday was much better than my Friday. :)
I wrote a little note on the back of each tag and told them that our Friday was "Nutty".
