Getting Organised

Well in little over a week, I will have to go back to work teaching music at a local primary school. It also means that my DD will also being going back to school. This year she is in Grade One. I spent Friday covering all her school books. I decided that I would cover her books in butcher's paper, stamp on them and then cover them in clear contact. Here is my efforts!

Her scrap books!

Her writing books.
We picked 4 colours... Pixie Pink, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise and Glorious Green. I printed out her name and her class on the computer and then punched them out using the 1 1/4" circle punch. I then layered them with the 1 3/8" circle and the scallop circle punch using these colours. She then picked out the stamp sets that she liked and we stamped away.
I know that no-one else will have their books covered the same way so she will be able to find her books easily.
She is happy with them and we had fundoing it together.
Cheers
Chrissie
