School Days

Cricut, Stretch Your Imagination, Cricut Classic Font, School Decor
I am SOOOO excited that my son is starting Preschool this year, I am sure I am more excited than he is.  He will be 5 in December, and it has been a LONG 4 1/2 years with him home!  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my little guy, but he has been a handful from Day 1.  I am also excited that I can start decorating for Back To School in my house, where all the other years, it seemed silly because I didn't have any kids in school.  So here is my first "School Days" home decor project.  I really like how it turned out! I used Stretch Your Imagination for the bus and Cricut Classic Font for the letters.  The wood plaque/base was from Wal-Mart for $1 and I painted it with black acrylic paint.  I used Elmer's Paper Craft Glue to adhere my yellow cardstock mat and DCWV Grade School pattern paper down. The letters were just put together with a Zig Glue Pen, the paper for the letters was also from DCWV Grade School pack.  I used some foam tape to pop up the bus to give a more 3-D look.  I am happy with how it turned out!  I will be entering this project in a few challenges this week; Craftin' Desert Divas (Back To School), BBTB2 (School Bus), Paper Playtime (Use Lots of Yellow).
