Ahhh sweet alliteration.

Now then, the end of the year is approaching.  AS is graduation.  I've got friends but there are just several girls I really want to thank.  I'm sure you guys understand.

They're all really unique, pretty, musical, smart, hysterical people.  Into corny stuff but can be a bit too mature for their own good.  Notorius around school for just being themselves and having an awesomely tight connection. 

I can answer any questions you want... but here's the problem.  I was planning on just doing some felt fortune cookies with personalized fortunes and a personalized carry out container (to double as a purse).  But lately I've been giving out the fortune cookies as just a feel better (ohh us an our emotional ways) type of thing.  Not the whole shabang just singular cookies here and there.  I'm not sure if I want to continue with my idea, but either way I'd like to see if I can scrounge up some better ones. 

Any help ya'll?  Thanks bunches!

Since many will probably be going to Colelge, why don't you get a few small terra cotta pots, paint them in the color of their school.  The fill with flower pens.  Where you take the top off of a silk flower, glue it on tot he end of a pen then wrap the pen in floral tape then put some floral foam in the pot, then you can type some type of goodbye poem and tie a pretty bow on the pot full of flower pens with the poem, and they have a cute littel pot with fun pens to use while away at school.

Giggles To all!

I think CD's would be really good too. Make each one a mixed CD with a personailized case and song list. You songs that you have listened to together or from their favorite bands or that remind you of them in some way.
Maybe add it to the forutne cookies abdn the purse, so it's like what you've been doing plus some extra stuff.

perhaps nice mini scrapbooks with totally memorable photos and such? you could also include an address book part so that you all can keep in touch. i like the fortune cookie + purse idea, though!

all you need is love!
