RN, Teacher gifts and grad favors...whew!

Wow I can't believe it's been a month!  Whew!  Well I've been a little busy in all areas of my life  :)  I've altered several more of the little holders I found at the recycling place.  First was a special project that I made for the RN's at the assisted living facility where my client spent his final days.  He lost his long battle with cancer on June 8th.  The nurses and Hospice where so unbelievably compassionate and caring to such a wonderful man and friend.  It touched my heart so I wanted to make them something special.
before & after
paper by Imaginisce #000455 Loves Me/Weak in the Knees, heart #000457 run through the Cuttlebug with the pin dot folder then I touched all of the dots with Liquid Pearls, "Smallest Things" phrase by Verve as well as the matching "Classy Label" die/stamp, heart cut with the Verve "Jotted Heart" die.

filled with a lot of Avery sticky notes, pads, pens
matching card...oval by "Nested Lacey Shapes", heart is a Spellbinders die, stamp by Verve

inside of card...stamp by Verve
Next I have teacher gifts for Denzel's teacher and her assistant.  She told me today I make the best gifts  :)  I saw this idea at Papertrey Ink  here.  There's a PDF with the journal questions.  I  tweaked and retyped mine in a different font. 
paper by Basic Grey's Sweet Threads line swt-3278, Verve heart die, matching cardstock from DCWV stack, phrase stamp "all About You" set by Verve

butterfly stamp "Chicks Rule" set and matching die "Flutterby" by Verve
journal questions in an acetate pillow box and a "leatherette" journal (so is that faux leather?  LOL)

Teacher assistant gift...much simpler...I was running out of time and went to bed at 1:00 a.m.!  You know how it is when you want/need to finish something!  :)
filled Bath & Body products
I made these 1"x8" cellophane bag favors for his classmates.  Filled with skittles...yum!
Circles cut at 2.5" and 2.75" stamp by Stampendous, grad cap is an SVG I found online and forgot where I got it (sorry my bad!) and the font (2011) was loaded in my MTC.  The can was a large powdered formula can that I repurposed  :)
Sorry this was so long but I hope you found some good ideas or inspiration......Kathi  :)
