Starry Trees Doodle Frame {printable} & a GIVEAWAY!

December 3, 2011
I wanted to say thank you so much for all of the sweet words about the tree graphics I posted yesterday–your words really made my day!! I feel so lucky to have such kind bloggy friends…you guys have always been so supportive when I have tried something new.
And you are always so understanding when I’m on some kind of new whim–and for that I am very grateful!

This morning, I practiced a bit more with graphics. My main goal right now is to make some frames–I can’t get enough frames lately!! Here’s my first attempt at a sort of frame, just in time for the holidays!

If you would like to download and use this frame, I would be absolutely over the moon about it!! If not, I’m just happy you’re here reading my blog anyhow!

On a semi-side note…

I’ve learned a little trick with frames (nothing earth-shattering, but I’ll share just in case!). It’s really easy to set a frame to its fullest size in Powerpoint. All you have to do is choose Format, then Slide Background. Under the Picture menu, you can navigate to your border, then just click Apply.

When it’s time to print, the border will print as full-size as possible, without going over your page margins.

So, back to the frame…if you’d like to use it, all I ask is to please credit Ladybug’s Teacher Files–thanks!!

In other news…I am so excited to have stopped by Farley’s blog at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to share in the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways! I am giving away a premade blog template (actually two, since someone is going to get to win EVERY prize on the last day!!). If you’d like to read more about the giveaway, please be sure to stop by Farley’s fantastic blog! 🙂

And finally, here is the file for the Starry Trees Doodle Frame…

    • Packing for the beach! I’m trying to stuff a few more books into my suitcase if I can...have you read any of these yet? #teachersonbreak #iteachfourth #iteach4th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • Do you have magnetic whiteboards in your class?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I LOVE mine...I only wish all of my walls could be filled with magnetic whiteboards! 😂 This year, I started using a little magnetic tool to save lots of time...and to avoid repeating information over and over.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I made these little due date magnets and they help in two ways. They hold extra assignments, forms, and work samples.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀They display the due date! Swipe to see some pics from our class. These little magnets kept me MUCH more organized this year...and they kept my fourth graders in the know!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀They are the perfect (easy) summer project for a rainy day...that’s actually what I’m doing today! 🌧 If you would like to see more, the link to this resource is in my profile (http://bit.ly/duedatemagnets)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • So I managed to avoid shoving things into random places...mostly 😂 #classroomorganization #kindof #randompaperplates #andnapkins #iteachfourth #iteach4th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • All packed up and ready for summer!! 😅 Best wishes to my friends still wrapping up their school years! #summertime #canbarelymove #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach4th
    • Two of my dear friends and colleagues retired today. I worked on teams with both over the years (one in 4th and one in 5th) and they’ve both been my next door (classroom door) neighbors. They’ve taught a combined total of 74 years!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀We had an outdoor luncheon on our school patio to celebrate their years of dedication to our school. The theme was beachy/nautical and it was so fun to set up...I found most of the decor at the Dollar Tree! We had tons of candles, shells, flowers, and a fishnet with class photos from over the years. (Don’t mind the masking tape on the table in that last photo, it was a bit windy 😂). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀It was a happy and sad kind of day 💕 #retiringfriends #cantimagineschoolwithoutthem #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
