Chalkboard Digital Paper Freebie

I made some Chalkboard Style digital papers  (CLICK HERE) to share with you all. They are sort of like picture files. You add them to your document like you would insert a picture. Then you can type on top of it using a text box and changing the text color to white. Feel free to use these papers in personal or commercial products. No credit is needed to use these. I do hope that you visit my blog and tell your friends about me. :)

Please note - I'm sort of new to designing stuff like this so I'm learning as I go. I always doubt my "stuff," but I'm trying my best. To keep with the spirit of sharing I hope you can find a use for these chalkboard papers.

Teacher Appreciation

Are you getting your teacher a little somethin' somethin' for Teacher Appreciation Week? It's next week and it's a great time to acknowledge how hard teachers work. A little gift goes a long way to show your thanks. It doesn't HAVE to be a material thing, but like anybody - teachers are human and usually do like being recognized with tokens of appreciation for being the special people they are. If they're anything like me they are always spending their own money on things to make the students have fun - stickers, art supplies, special rewards, etc. Teachers are grateful people and love homemade cards to show love, a note from a parent acknowledging your hard work means so much. If you do anything to recognize teachers it will be appreciated!

I'm giving my son's preschool teacher and assistant little bags of Ghiradelli chocolates and made this fun tag to go on the front. I glued the tag on the bag and glued little raffia bows on top to to dress them up.
