Back 2 School Days

 Yes, fall is coming and time to go back to school!  How about a gift or treat for the new teacher???  If you are following along on our Magnolia-licious Highlites blog hop, that is our theme this month!

So if you have come from that sweet and creative Janiel's blog, you are sitting in the right seat on the bus.  If you arrived on your own, you will want to go HERE to start from the beginning to enjoy the whole ride to the school of ideas from all the Design Team members.
My project started with an adorable chalkboard pin with dangling charms that I found.  I just knew I had to do something with it, so I made a box top with the chalkboard theme to put on the cover of the box that will hold the pin.

From Magnolia-licious, I used:

Of course, I used my trusty Scor-Pal to create my box.  Have you checked out the new Scor-Pal book yet?  Lots of fun projects and it has the best tips and ideas on how to get the most use out of your Scor-Pal!  HERE is a link.  I even have a little project in the book!!!
Coloring on this project is water color with the distress inks.  Just had to incorporate those books I used in the last posting to add to my little scene in the schoolroom.  Found some ribbon that was marked like a ruler and created the chalkboard frame with some brown distress inks and a crackle stamp.

Don't forget to swing on by Magnolia-licious to see all the terrific offerings by our Dear Diana!!!  She has found some fun things for us and has such great specials.  Click HERE to go right to the specials!!! 

Now be sure to get back on the bus and head over to that cutie and fun gal Ruby to see the awesome project she has created!  We hope you will join us in the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites.

Enjoy every day!  Appreciate you stopping by and ALWAYS enjoy your comments....Thank You!!!!

First of all, the little chalkboard just cracked me up. At first, I "oohed and aaahhhed" over the little charms. Then, I took a look at what you had written and saw that the note was FROM Tilda! That made me smile! LOL

Your card is wonderful. I love the design and all of the elements you included. What a perfect way to showcase Tilda!
