Blog Hop & DDS 4th Year Blogaversary!

Welcome to the Spring Fling Hop-Hop-Hop with Doodle Dragon Crew and Design to Color.  You should have hopped from Veronica.  We are so happy you could join us for this special occasion. It is also Dustin Pike's/Doodle Dragon Studios 4 year Blogaversary!  You won't want to miss out on the deals he is offering.  Some of the crew used images from the new set, so hop around and get inspired. 

How cute is this Fairy Frog Mother?  She totally caught my eye when I saw the new images!  Doesn't she look like she's pulling up at chair at lunch and saying, "Hello friend!"  Ready to dive into a deep and exciting conversation with her best friend.

Leaving a comment and some love will get you a chance of winning some cool stuff.   Both Designed to Color and Dustin Pike have some goodies to give away.  Hopping is open until the 25th and winners will be announced by the 29th.  So hop on over to Gramma and check out the sweet creation!  If you have gotten lost here are the hop links below.  Hop along now!!

Somebunny Love Box Tops!

Ah man, it's getting close!  Only 2 more months of school left!  And my second to last bulletin board at this school.  After 13 years of having children here, my youngest child will graduate to junior high this year.  Sniff. Sniff.  And after 8 years of being the PTA Ongoing Fundraising Coordinator (which includes being the Box Tops Lady) it's coming to an end too.  Sniff.  Sniff.  It's the BEST position and most fun position on the PTA Board!

Thanks to Dustin Pike aka Doodle Dragon Studios for the most amazing images to work with over the years!  My bulletin boards, poster and flyers always look so great!

For this bulletin board, I used my wide format printer and 12"x24" cardstock to make the bunny (isn't he adorable!?) and wagon.  I printed sections at a time then paper pieced them together.  The background is wrapping papers.

I have to brag a little bit about our school.  The students, families and faculty are super supportive of all our Ongoing Fundraising programs, Box Tops being our top program.  This year we rocked it again!  We earned $5,491.41 just from Box Tops!

In the Box Tops World, our school is currently ranked:
#6 in our Area - within 25 miles (out of 400 schools)
#8 in the State (out of 773 schools)
#214 in the Nation (out of 88,911 schools)

Somebunny LOVES Box Tops!  It must be Eaglecrest Elementary families!   EGG-cellent job Eaglecrest!  For our next Somebunny LOVES Box Tops contest, the students will trade in their completed Box Tops collection sheets for a plastic egg filled with a treat, a prize or an extra ticket in our drawing for bigger prizes!

Keep Calm

Meh... today is one of those I have a million things to do days, but really not interested or motivated to do any of them.  So I started looking through all my Doodle Dragon Studios images.  I found this cutie in my treasures and starting playing with him. 

Now it's time for dinner.  Yeah, I not real motivated for that either.  Any ideas?  Order out, you say?  Perfect!

Anything Goes Challenge! Go BLUE!

Our challenge this week over on Doodle Dragon Studios is ANYTHING GOES!  Well, GO BLUE! 

April is Autism Awareness Month.  One of our Small Groups teachers (Autistic class) is working on her Masters and will be leaving our school.  She has worked here since it opened 16 years ago.  I am super excited for her new adventure, but sad to see her go.  I decided to make this card for every one to sign to let her know she is loved and appreciated.

Your turn!  Make a card for ANYTHING and post it to our challenge by Sunday, April 21st.
