The last few months have been crazy around here.  In November my son applied to 19 colleges.  The amount of paperwork and the daily e-mails was over whelming.  He travelled the country looking at schools-Boston, Chicago, Indiana, Colorado and Southern California.  He had to commit by May 1.  Some schools he got into, but not into the business program.  He had a very difficult time deciding.  He got it down to UC Davis and Santa Clara University.  He finally chose Santa Clara, 30 miles from home.  He wanted to give the two teachers that wrote him letters of recommendation gift cards. On top of all of this both of my daughters moved home from Southern California.  Now that I have more time, I will visit your blogs more.  My poor little blog has been neglected
 This is what I came up with.  All of the products I used are My Creative Time. I printed the school logo from my computer.


  1. I think you gift card looks amazing and I am sure the teachers will love it! Glad things will be calming down for you!!
