Thank You To Our Teachers Blog Hop - Day 3

Hello everyone! Welcome to day three of our Thank you to our Teachers blog hop. If you just landed here, please go to the beginning of the hop using the list below.
Now, if you've followed day one and day two of our hop, you know that I am especially excited to show you my third project.
So... here it is!

Canvas Supplies:

This canvas was inspired by the super talented Jennifer McGuire; she blogged about a class she was going to teach in Dayton, OH last month. And, let me tell you, if I had known about this class sooner, I would have definitely driven four hours to take this class. I knew I wanted to make one, so I studied the sneak peek photo she posted HERE, and made one of my own. Mine is a little simpler of course, but what can I say... I missed the class. I still love how it turned out, and Mrs. D loved it just as much. I actually had a hard time parting with it; I hope to make one of my own soon.

See this picture below? This is the reason why I took the time to make these gifts for an absolutely beautiful lady; those of you that know me, know that I have very few spare minutes in my day, so this was quite the challenge. Thank you Kimmarie for inviting me to join this hop, therefore, giving me the perfect deadline.
This photo was taken just moments before my little Noah started crying because he is going to miss Mrs. D.
