~Back to School projects!

Hey there friends!  Here are a couple of relatively quick projects that Tacoah and I just finished for back to school.  She picked all the images for her backpack (from the new CTMH Artistry) and decided the colors.  I did mess up on the flower a bit because I tried to make a 2 layer cut into 3.  Leaves have to be green, ya know?  The extra name tag is for a bag that she will use to go to math class.  In 3rd grade, it's the only class for which she needs to change teachers.  Shelly picked this bag up at Gabriel brother's discount outlet for a couple of bucks. You would not believe that the original price of this thing was $89!!  It's by an artist named Carlos Falchi who turns his paintings into handbags.  I've never heard of him.  Maybe you have.   :-)   Anyway, you know those plastic ties they use to put tags on items require a bulldozer to remove, so I just added Tacoah's nametag on top!  And got in a bit of coloring too!  I used Fontastic Fonts - DJ Smitten.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope if you are readying for back to school you can incorporate some crafty time into it!
