2009 Edmonton Underwear Affair

On Saturday I walked with 2 great friends of mine in the 2009 Edmonton Underwear Affair. It is an event that raises money for research for cancers that hit below the waist. I am an ovarian cancer survivor, so this event is near and dear to my heart. The best part was that I could enjoy the day with great friends and my two fantastic kids! :-)

This year there were more than 1,200 people who took to the streets of Edmonton dressed down to their underwear. Together we raised a lot of eyebrows, but more importantly, we raised an incredible $675,000 for research that will ultimately benefit patients at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and throughout Alberta.

Imaginisce- Teacher's Pet

I made these cute paper boxes with blank 3x3 notecards for teacher's gifts this year. The paper is Imaginisce - Teacher's Pet, flowers are from that line as well!
You can purchase these papers here at Scrapbooking Fanatics: http://www.scrapbookingfanatics.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=23_416 This first box is for Mrs. C., my son's teacher.

This second box is for my daughter's teacher Mr. H. Since this is a male teacher, I've omitted the ribbons and flowers.

For the Base of the box, cut a 5 5/8" square and score 1" on each side. Fold on all score lines, then cut out corner sections. Glue together.
Lid is the same process, but you will be cutting a 7 1/2 square and scoring all sides at 2".
Notecards are 3"x3".

More Doodlebug Zoofari cards!

This Doodlebug Zoofari paper line combined with this circle card is just too cute for words!
I had to make these 3 x 3 notecards with my leftovers!
