for your brilliant "Thank you for helping me grow" idea!!! (Only I substituted "me" with "us"). I made my own "flowers" with all the kids' pictures on them and on the back I put the child's name and what they liked best about the teacher. I used a regular flower card holder for the note. I originally planned on making the flowers out of construction paper but when I got to the store I decided on felt and that spongy-type stuff. (It comes in the size of a piece of construction paper but I don't know the name of it!) The teachers LOVED it and one almost started crying!! LOL! Joshua helped cut out the flowers and glue everything together.

If anyone uses the idea.....make sure you have PLENTY of time to get pictures from everyone! (I thought I did, I gave them over two weeks to get them to me). I had to run to the school early this morning with my digital camera, get pictures of the kids who I didn't yet have (which BTW was about half!), download them on the computer, print them out and finish the gifts so I could get them there at noon! I had everything ready except gluing on the pictures.

So..... thank you Alysha!! They loved the gift sooo much and the "Thank you for helping us grow" saying was a smash hit! :0)
