Prima Frugal Friday School Memories

Prima has started a fascinating weekly feature called Frugal Friday. These are projects that can be completed under $5.00 -technically $5.00 in Prima products to be clear.

I made a project using the School Memories Collection.  School in now is session and soon kids are going to need a little gift for that special teacher.  Why not make something - quick, easy and hand crafted?  

I admire teachers.  It takes a special person to make a significant impact on a child forever.  I have had some good teachers, some not so good teachers and then those great gifted teachers who will forever stand out in my mind.  In fact, last year I had lunch with my grade 5 teacher.  She was every bit as delightful as I remember - but I could not bring myself to call her "Maryann".  Seriously!  She is Miss "R". 

This is a shout out to Miss "R" and all those other Greats!  Thanks
