Happy Birthday Arizona! And a blog candy Share!!

February 14, 2012 was Arizona's 100th birthday! Yippee! Since I am originally from New York learning all about Arizona with my 5th Grader was a lot of fun! We really do live in a great state! So in honor of this special birthday her Teacher asked me to decorate the classroom door! Yippee!! Lots of crafting fun!!

Arizona! Valley of the Sun!

See my cute barrel cactus?

             
 All the students drew a picture of what Arizona means to them!



The Grand Canyon, Arizona, and cactus are cut from Destinations Cricut Cartridge
The eagle is from Stand and Salute
Bird and bird hole from Wild Card
The Stars and years are from Plantin Schoolbook
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Mosaic
Sizzix Die Cut Film Strip

Inside the film strips I have all the major events that occurred during the last 100 years, this was the most tedious part!
This door took me all day long it was a lot of fun! We placed 6th! That is pretty good out of the entire school!

  16. Wonderful Arizona classroom decor. I have the Destinations cartridge and have yet to use it. I looked at it and it has a Mardi Gras phrase that I may use.
