Teacher's Day

In the month of September, Teacher's Day and Children's Day in Singapore has been changed to the first Friday of the month.  Ms E prepared a number of cards for all her teachers and for one special art teacher Joanne we had something different.

My friend KP attended a class and was going to impart some of her learnings to us at one scrapbook session, but as she was caught up in a meeting and could not excuse herself, many of us were left what to do.  Basically, we never got to start the class and never got round to having a lesson.  All of us took our cardboard pieces home and this is how mine turned out to be.

This is my intepretation, sprinkled with what I think teacher Joanne is like. Sweet, electic, different and a little unique.

This is the front of the House.  It's a 3D box, with butterflies soaring away from the house like ideas generating and growing. This "House" holds an electic album of mish mash papers, pockets and sizes. 

The mini album inside mirrors a little of the front, and is made in a flip book style

The back of the House is decorated with Ms E's picture and is deliberately finished off with a row of kiddy pearls for that slight childlike finish

To make the album, I added components made by Ms E to personalise the inside with little embellishments, multipocket pages and sparkly stuff.  She was happy and I think teacher Joanne was to.
