"A HOMEMADE GIFT FOR MY SON'S GREAT 6th GRADE TEACHER."!

ALL YEAR MY SON'S 6TH GRADE TEACHER HAS ASKED MY SON TO
BRING A PICTURE OF HIS BUNNY. ALL YEAR MY SON HAS FORGOTTEN TO GET A
PICTURE TO HIM. YOU SEE, HIS TEACHER HAD A BUNNY LIKE OURS FOR 11+ YEARS
AND IT RECENTLY HAD DIED. SO, MY SWEET SON WANTED TO GIVE HIM A PICTURE
OF HIS BUNNY AS A GIFT AS A REMINDER FOR HIS TEACHER TO "REMEMBER" HIS
OWN BUNNY.... SO, .... LAST NIGHT I STAYED UP AND MADE THIS FOR HIS TEACHER.

I TOOK: CARDBOARD, 2 DIFFERENT KINDS OF PATTERN PAPERS, INKED THE PAPERS
AND EDGES, MATTED THE PICTURE ON BLACK BASIC GREY BLING, ADDED WORN
LACE, STAR STICKERS, OLD SILVER METAL COWBOY BOOT, (HIS SCHOOL MASCOT
IS COWBOYS) ADHERED BUTTONS, HOLE PUNCHED 2 HOLES UP TOP AND ADDED
BLUE RIBBON, ADDED EXTRA RIBBONS AND QUEEN & CO. RED STARS THROUGH THE
RIBBONS, ADDED A LABEL ON RED CORUGATED PAPER AND BLACK STICKERS WITH
BUNNY'S NAME "LOLA". I INKED IT A LOT TO GIVE IT A DISTRESSED LOOK. THEN
ON THE BACK I ADDED BROWN PAPER AND WROTE IN PEN "TO MY TEACHER IN
REMEMBRANCE OF YOUR BUNNY."

THIS WAS MY SON'S IDEA, AND I THINK IT WILL MEAN A LOT TO HIS TEACHER THAT
IT IS O.K. TO BE REMEMBERED... I KNOW THIS TEACHER WAS GOOD TO MY SON AND
MY SON HAD A GREAT YEAR AND THAT HIS 6TH GRADE YEAR WILL ALWAYS BE
REMEMBERED... SO LONG SCHOOL YEAR.... YEAH! SUMMER!!!
