FCCB #259 - Back To School!

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

Challenge #259 Back to School
Make a project featuring school related activities or teachers!

This Weeks Sponsor:

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

And, if you submit a project in our challenge that isn't a card, you will get two entries for a chance to win the prize instead of one!

For my project this week I created some lunch box notes for my 8 year old daughter who is going into Grade 3! I can't believe it!! Last September I started off the year making a few notes - well she loved them so much and was so disappointed when she didn't get one that I ended up giving her one everyday! She actually keeps them all and looks through them quite often :) Something little that makes her that happy actually makes it worth it, but I just realized I'd better get working on getting these babies stockpiled!

I used a few different cuts to make these fun note cards -
Cricut cuts are:
CREATE  and the CHEVRON cut are from ZOB
The GLASSES are from Party Photo Props
The SQUARE bases are from Basic Shapes
YOUR WORLD IS YOUR CANVAS quote is from Phone Decals

Then I used Miss Kate's Cuttables files:
School Supplies Set and
School Supply Set for all the fun school supplies on the cards.

I used some stencils and Distress Inks to stencil in some backgrounds on my card bases and even used the Write feature for the quote - love that feature! I used Prismacolor Markers to shade my cuts to add a realistic shaded look to them before adding them on the square backgrounds.

On the back I always write a little note to my daughter, but I also wanted to include some of the Small Talk stickers from Tim Holtz - great quotes!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I can't wait for you to check out what all the other Design Team members have come up with too on the Fantabulous Cricut blog! Don't forget to enter your own project for a chance to win a wonderful prize - just make sure you have at least 1 Cricut cut and let us know what cartridge you used. Plus you get an extra entry for any projects that are not a card - how cool is that?!!
