Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Back to School

It's that time again - Back to School!  Here in AZ our kiddos go back by the beginning of August - some as early as the end of July.  I guess they figure that it's so darn hot the kids might as well be in an air-conditioned school all day.  LOL

For our Terrific Tuesday Challenge this week we want to see your Back to School related projects.  Here's mine...

It's a dry erase board - a teacher gift that I made for both my girls teachers.  I included a dry erase pen - not shown - that way they can use it right away!  I used ruler print ribbon (that I've had in my stash forever!) to make the bow.  The tag shape is from Once Upon a Princess - I just made the one slightly larger for the shadow. "Just a Note" is from Scrappy Moms Stamps The Charmed Life set.  For the A,B,C blocks at the bottom I used SMS Alphabet Soup stamp set and Alphabet Soup die.  I used the die to cut 2 layers - one of cardboard and one of cardstock so they would be sturdy.  I masked off the numbers on the stamps so that only the letters would stamp.  I use hot glue to adhere everything to the black 5x7 picture frame (from Target).  

I hope you enjoyed my project for today - come join us and link up your Back to School project for a chance to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps set of your choice!
