The CCEE Stampers Go Back to School.......


Well......that is not completely true.......I am NOT going back to school, but I will be attending my 9th First Day of School Breakfast for Retired Teachers that we have each year.  It is a great day when all of the retired teachers gather to celebrate that we are NOT going back to school.  Sounds terrible, doesn't it.......but most of us put in 35 or more years of teaching, and are now onto new and less demanding adventures now.  (I find it amazing that this will mark the start of my NINTH year of retirement.  Time has truly flown by.

Not much stamping here......The sentiment is all the stamping I had to do and it is an SU stamp.  The rest of it is designer paper from DCWV.  The scissors are buttons.  I cut the shank off and glued them as 'decor' on my card.

Be sure to check out the other Back to School 'treats' at the CCEE Blog.

Fab papers and I love the white sentiment on red. And no, I don't think your Not back to school breakfast is horrible - sounds great to me! We had a lot of teachers in the family and it was not a career that every appealed to me, but I have enormous admiration and respect for those who made a vocation of it. I remember several inspirational teachers with very fond memories.

What fun paper and buttons!! Those little feet are so cute! My DH is celebrating his 12th year of retirement, so I know how you feel about NOT going back to school. He put in 40 years teaching high school math, and even though he goes back to tutor for free where he taught, it's not the same!!!

This is such a wonderful back-to-school card, Joanne. What great paper and the scissors are just too cute.
Happy 9th year retirement. Hope you enjoyed/will enjoy the breakfast celebrating NOT going back to school. Funny, funny, but I can imagine that is a good feeling. All your years of educating is really appreciated.
