A Lunch Box For Teacher

Hello My Friends,

Sorry I haven't been around much.  I am battling the mean old Meniere's disease http://vestibular.org/menieres-disease and can't seem to shake it.  I found out yesterday that the pollen count for ragweed is off the charts in our area, sometimes that can cause me to have vertigo and Meniere's symptoms.   Hope it goes away soon!  Anyway, I wanted to make something for the Die Cutting Diva Challenge, My Buddy Diane's Challenge, and Decorate To Celebrate's Challenge, I try to participate every week, but was too sick last week.  The challenge this week is "Back to School".

I saw this cute little lunch box at the Silhouette Store.  I wanted to make something for my next door neighbor Megan to bring her teacher.

Isn't this fun?  I used a digital stamp from A Day For Daisies called "Vintage Classroom".

Here is the handle of the lunchbox.

I am going to put her teacher's name there.  Her teacher is either "Miss Smith" or "Mrs. Smith" I have to talk to her mom to find out which.  Do you like the little crayon brads?  They are my "stash Item" I have had them for over a year.  Bought them on sale at Michaels last January.

Here is a close-up of the digital stamp.
