Back to School!

Well the Brunswick school district went back to school today. 

I remember growing up on the west side of Cleveland and

we didn't go back to school till the 1st week of Sept. Normally the

day after Labor Day. How times change!

I picked up this plastic pencil case at Catan's, and knew right

away I wanted to decorate it for back to school. 

The apples were stamped on Real Red card stock then fussy cut. 

Love the large thinlit numbers. They can be used for so many different

things. The base is Crushed Curry cardstock that was

decorated with several different things. One was a Tim Holtz number

stencil, the other thing I used was a ruler background stamp (SU retired)

In hindsight I wish I would have also decorated the inside lid, but

since it is already glued in place not able to take it out. I may

just stamp some different elements and glue them on with Tombo. 

I also picked up this plastic case and decorated it. Not as happy with this

one, but I can still use it in the craft room. 

Here is the inside view. At least with this one I remember to 

stamp the inside. 

With the kids going back to school I hope everyone drives

carefully and be on the lookout for children, and the school buses. 

Back to school.....blues!
