I Just Had To Share This

My wonderful DIL Jenn is the room Mom for my GS's Kindergarten class. 
Jenn is very talented and loves making cards, scrapbooking, and doing all kinds of projects with me.  We are very close and I am sure that our love of crafting, gardening, the kids, and of course my Son help keep us that way. 
Jenn made this VIP book for my GS's Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Davis.  Each child colored one page about Mrs. Davis and then put their name on the back.  It goes like this. Who has blond hair to comb?  Mrs. Davis has blond hair to comb. 
There are 32 pages each with different questions (usually about the Birthday child).  The kids draw and color a picture of what ever the question was about, like Mrs. Davis with her blond hair.  The questions are about things she loves to do, place she loves to go, and about her family and friends.  Then Mrs. Davis and the kids sing what is on each page.  Mrs. Davis had no idea that this was going to happen to her let alone about her.  You see Mrs. Davis's birthday is Dec. 23rd so every year because her birthday is during Christmas break not much happens for her.  But this year when they gave her the book before break she couldn't believe it.  The kids sang the song about her and she loved it.  Yes there were tears...
Here is the cover to the book:
Here is just one of the pages in the book.  You can see why this is so special and a one of a kind gift for sure.
The VIP book is usually done for each child about that child and given to them on their birthday.  The kids just love getting theirs.  On the last page Jenn put a special spot for Mrs. Davis to put a class photo.  What a great keepsake.
The covers are made from chipboard and covered with the Typeset paper.
The Typeset paper packet from Close to My Heart was a perfect choice to use with all the letters and numbers on the papers.  All the items were cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  All the ribbons, pins, cork letters are also from CTMH.   It is so nice to have all the paper and cardstock that coordinate together in one pack.
The Stars are cut with the AP cartridge scored and folded and stamped all with CTMH products.The stamp set is the one that comes with the Typeset Workshop on the go you can see it and the paper here.

Let her know what you think.
