strawberry shortcake gifties

Holy long blogging break! After school was out, I took a little break from scrapping and blogging, but didn't realize it had been over a month since my last post! Summer came so fast this year! We've been busy going on family trips and getting the great outdoors prettied up with flowers and such that I haven't set foot in my studio since May! I have a few fun things to show you - a little late of course!

At the end of the school year, I wanted to create a little special somethin' for all the special people that bring a smile to my face and lend a helping hand throughout the year. The people that do so much - and don't get nearly enough recognition for the amount of work they do for our school. So I decided to put together a little strawberry shortcake jar for those certain wonderful peeps! Such an easy and eye appealing yummy to share!

I used pint jars (perfect size) and layered each with sliced strawberries, angel food cake and cool whip. Then I tied a little note with some jute and attached large bamboo spoons (loved the earthiness this gave the overall look!) so they can chow down immediately. I prepared them the night before and kept them in the fridge overnight. They were a big hit! I am sure they would be perfect if you added some blueberries for your upcoming 4th of July festivities!

Thanks for popping in!!
