Celebrating love

Happy Monday everyone,

How was the weekend.. I spent some quiet times catching up on my reading...Took a break from crafting.. Although am pretty happy about the fact that I have been crafting almost daily and feeling really good about it...

I made this easel card to give to my most favorite teacher ever.. She retires from school this year and am sure all her students would miss her.. She was the reason for me turning into a model students and focusing on my studies and single-handedly responsible for my love for books.. Ma'am I love you very much and thank you so much for all you have done for me.. I doubt I could ever thank you enough for it..

This is how the easel looks standing...
