Crazy 4 Challenges is thinking about Back to School time!


Our hostess with the mostess Jessie is challenging us to have a back to school theme with our crafts this week!

I have to admit this is not what I planned- and I like this better! I had planned out a card that had 4 windows and I wanted to put apples in each one and make it a thank you card. Then the apples turned into these cute school bus stickers. Then my plan to do 4 windows was crushed when I couldn't figure out how to get my globe patterned paper to frame each cut out window equally. I am NOT as handy as I would like to be with an exacto knife lol!

Sometimes the best ideas come when you just let go and breathe. 

While sitting on my floor sulking I eyed my large fishbowl of washi tape and this ruler pattern crossed my path. Then I envisioned it used as a road for the buses...and you can see where that left me. And I have to say this looks much better than the apple card I had in mind originally hee hee!

I can't wait to see what the other Crazies have come up with this week! Hop on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and go back to school with us!

Cheers Andrea
