Hi Larissa - Sounds like you do the farm in a really BIG way! What a fun treat for the students to bring in their pets and animals for others to see, touch... and smell. You truly are giving them a hands-on education! Am happily anticipating your photo of the little calf... know it will be a mooving (just had to put that in!)experience for your students and us too. Thanks for sharing! Rosanne

Congratulations, Marai - You won this week's $25 Ellison Gift Certificate! Your clever and imaginative use of the Sizzix Lace Heart die for your mask is beautiful!!! Folding your paper and cutting on the fold made a very intricate and lovely mask... what a great way to think outside the box! Would love to see more of everyone's innovative usage of die cuts! Thanks again for sharing your wonderful idea with us, Marai... am sure it will give a jump start to many more creative ways to die cut! Rosanne

Thanks for the comments, Karen and sanclementesmith - so glad you like the new Ellison dies - they are pretty neat! Really like your idea about the mobile too... would be super cute for students to color and hang around the classroom, or cut from 'beachy' material for a baby's crib! Rosanne
