Happy Pi Day!!

If you didn't already know: TODAY IS PI DAY! Not pie that you eat, but the mathematical term pi that has to do with circle measurement. The first three numbers in pi are 3.14 so March 14 is the day teachers celebrate pi!

The teacher in the room next door to my classroom is the Math teacher for our team and I think she is amazing teacher. She gets her students involved in her classroom in anyway she can think of. She holds weekly class meetings, teaches concepts and formulas using fun songs and YouTube videos and works hard to make sure they all get any help they need.  I wanted to make her a special Pi Day card to honor a big Math concept and her as well.
I cut this card using my new favorite envelope/card cut from Walk in My Garden. I added a bunch of layered circles all cut with the Creative Memories cutting system. The patterned paper was printed from the Yummy Imagine cartridge. I cut the word "pie" and the numbers 3.14 using From My Kitchen cartridge and than I simply cut the "e" off.  The "Happy" and "Day" letters were cut using Birthday Bash. I had to add a little sparkle as the dot to my "i" and I was still looking to add something extra so I used a Cut N' Paste adhesive border by K & Company. 

If you remember anything about Pi, email a math teacher and say thank you today. Or just have a slice of pie those are circles so it is a good way to celebrate.  This project is being enter in Scrapbookaholic By Abby's first ever challenge. The challenge is super fun: create a card in honor of a March holiday, anything will do!
