Her first grade home room teacher and her special ed teacher both got tote bags and apple pots. Her two paras got large outdoor pinwheels and her van driver got a canvas tote bag.

I've been loving all the cards people are making using the Bokeh technique. I thought I'd give it a try. It was super easy. I cut some circles on my Cameo in 1 3/4", 1 1/4" and 3/4" out of heavy cardstock. I tried using several types of tape to mask of my area but out of washi tape, blue low tac painters tape and micro pore tape, the micro pore tape was the only one that did not tear the paper. 
I used stampin up inks and a sponge dauber. 

White cardstock: Recollections Heavy

Stampin Up Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo. 

Stampin Up inks:  Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Strawberry Slush, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Pacific Point, and Island Indigo. 

White ink: Simon Says Stamp
