Hey everyone, how are all of you!? It's Monday already and Monday's always bring a new challenge at BBTB2 and this week it's going to be from the Locker Talk Cartridge and ANY of the School Supplies (pencils, scissors, paper, ect.) Can You believe it's already time to get ready for Back To School!!! McCade isn't ready AT ALL! He said that summer just started and he thinks they got the days mixed up, LOL! He'll start the 5th grade this year (talk about time flying, I can't believe he's that old already, lol)! Well I actually love back to school time, I love all the school supplies that all the stores put out. I even usually pick me up a few things (probably like lots of you do also, lol) One thing I ALWAYS pick up are Composition books! You can usually get them a bit cheaper this time of year (not that they're expensive in the first place but if you can get two for the price of one, then that's a deal for me!) Well this time I made my own Composition Book! I used the Campin Critter's cart. There's a Camp Journal on it and I just left off the "Camp" and put my own "School" on it from Locker Talk. I know you all think I'm a Genious, LOL, LOL! I cut it at 8" and used some older Basic Grey paper's (McCade actually picked out the paper's since he'll be the proud owner of this little beauty, lol) He really liked it and even said that the kids will probably want one when they see it! Isn't that the sweetest thing anyone ever heard, out of the mouths of babes, lol! I added a Pencil, Scissors, Ruler, a Stack of books and even a working Paper Clip! And McCade Loves to read so I made him a new Locker Bookmark, he Loves Bookmarks (just like his Mama!) I added some pages to the inside and just used some Jute to hold it all together. I have some ribbon that looks like a ruler but I couldn't find it for the life of me so once I do find it I'll have to make another one. This was pretty simple to do and went together pretty fast, I simply Love how it turned out, I added some faux stitching and a small bit of inking, a brad on the scissors and it was done!
Here's a shot of the pages in the book and the paperclip and bookmark. Well McCade is all set for school, we've got his new school clothes and shoes, just need to get a new backpack, he said he doesn't need one tho, he still likes his old one, oh well more school supply money for me, maybe I see a new cart in the near future, lol! Well hope you join us this week over at BBTB2, just remember if you don't have the Locker Talk cart, Any cart with school supplies on it will work. Link up on the BBTB2 Blog, just remember that is has to be a NEW project and you could win our Cute Pick of the Week (POW) Blinkie to add to your Blog, along with Bragging Rights of course!
