Well, it's time to go back to school! Austin started this afternoon with a bar-b-q for the Grade 9s and then an afternoon of classes. Jonah and Sage start tomorrow with their staggered entrances. So, last night, we had our 3rd annual Back To School Feast, which included make your own pizzas, caesar salad, watermelon, mozzarella sticks and a back-to-school cake.
I bought a frame at the thrift store and Cameron painted it off-white for me. Then, he cut me a board to fit in it and painted it with chalk board paint. I've been totally inspired by my friend, Elena's chalkboard wall and thought a nice large chalkboard would be fun to display for special events.
And I took a photo this morning before Austin left for his bbq....
And as usual, we made some treats for the teachers (although Austin said he didn't want to take any this year-- high school students! Sheesh! ;) ) As usual, we made some Butter Crunch to give out (Click here for the recipe.) I dressed up six of the bags with tags using my new PTI Mighty Oak stamp set and cover plate.
I had bought some Studio Calico wood shapes which had a bunch of little apples in them, so I stamped them with one of the leaf images from Might Oak to make them polka-dotted. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #9.
And Sage wanted to make the tags for her classroom teacher and her music teacher. She paper-pieced the Squirrel from Nuts for You.
Thanks for looking!
