You're One in a Melon!

Shhhh!  Don't tell, but we are taking this sweet little ensemble to Halleigh's new kindergarten teacher.  We hope she likes it! 
Halleigh picked out this little watermelon vase for her teacher, so I took it from there to add stuff inside.
Don't pass out, but I actually did NOT glue myself with the hot glue gun while making these flowers....I know that is a total and complete miracle!   Yes, my fingers thank me, also!
In addition to all the fun flower folds glued together, there are 8 expo markers for her whiteboard stuffed inside and hidden by the flowers!  Hoping she will like that.
And for a little sweet treat, we have some M & M's, because we all need a little chocolate sometimes!
Stamps are from Mouthwatering and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. 
And, my personal favorite, the watermelon card to go with the ensemble.  It says, You're one in a Melon on the inside.  The retired circle cutter came in handy to make these circles.  Always Artichoke is 5 1/2", Lucky Limeade is 5 1/4", Melon mambo is 5" and folded in half.  I added some Melon Mambo trim (retired) for decoration and made some basic black seeds and added Dazzling Diamonds on the front. 
So, do you think she'll like it?!

I am sure she will. I love them and they are not even for me.
