Hello, all.. Well.. just a few more days til school starts for my son Lucas. I am trying to find a nice school present for him but i am not successful. I should have bought him that watch at Disney land. What did you get your child as a special keepsake for the big first day? Here in the USA i have never seen those big candy bags in cone shape that we had in Germany. So, with the other stuff iam almost set. Just a pair of new shoes some "nice" clothes, Target and have some pics taken and oh not to forget the 30!!! glue sticks he is going to need :-)

friend Carole she got them at Elaines store. I have ordered before with Elaine and her store is a pure treasure chest :-) and her customer service just fabulous.

, the ribbons are by stampin up and for those who do not know.. my friend Carole is a Stampin up Demonstrator in the UK. You could contact her if you like to order some stuff
here.

Hey Claudia, love the card and those BG papers look so yummy!
Good luck to your son with starting school, I bet you'll really miss him!
When my daugher started I bought her a cuddly toy, it was Princess Adda from the Bugs Life movie. When my son started I gave him a giant Labrador soft toy which he named Titus...... he sleeps with him every night, awwwww! Good luck with finding something special ;o)

Jeanette said...

Hey Sweetie, Your card is gorgeous! Are you sure 30 glue sticks is going to be enough? I didn't really get my kids anything for their first day of school, but we always take a picture of them at the front door all ready to go! Have a great day! Hugs Jeanette

Dena said...

This is so pretty. I love these new BG papers! Great colors. You are such a nice mommy I never had that tradition of getting them something special for their first day. The shopping for "stuff" before school started was the excitment for them. Did you get him a cute lunch box? Hope his first day goes well. Hugs, Dena

Danielle said...

Gorgeous card again Claudia! Tilda is coloured so beautifully and the papers you've used are just fabulous! Stunning work my friend!
Hugs, Danielle

Suzan L said...

Hi Claudia, I love your card especially the DP's that you used. You are always finding the cutest DP's. I also love the cherry charm. And, your coloring is so beautiful!! You are such a sweet Mom!! You probably already do this, but you should make up some cute little notes to put in Lucas' lunch bag or backpack to let him know that you are thinking about him for the first week of school.
Hugs, Suzan

Vicki (basement stamper) said...

Hi Claudia!! She sure is beautiful hun!! The colors are fabulous and those charms are perfect!! HUGS

Jacilynn said...

30 glue sticks? Are you serious? That's crazy. Have you been to a Cost Plus World Market before? They have imported candies/gifts. I've seen some cone bags with candy there. Not sure if it's the same thing, but thought I'd pass the info along.

Annacarin said...

Hi Claudia, i like the colours very much!Your card is lovely!
I wonder who was hungry.. *lol*

Well, my eldest daughter is 15 and the next 12, if I remember right, I gave them books where classmates could write who they were and what they had for the interest and what they wanted to be when they grown up, etc.
Hugs Annacarin

Nancy said...

Hi Claudia...not only do you make great cards you are a great Mom as well. I love that you want to get Lucas something special for his first day. I never did that with my kids but i think that is awesome but that is just the kind of person you are. I love your card, the colors, DP and I love how the cherries are hanging down right by Tildas head. Everything is fabulous!
Hugs,
Nancy

Dear Claudia, such precious card. Tilda looks so adorable sitting there. Wonderful colours, gorgeous DP's from Basic Grey. Love that daisy border (broke the handle on my punch, don't know what to do with it now, sigh). I hope you find that special something for Lucas. Is he excited or is he anxious?

Hugs.
Norma
