Back to School Day 1

So for the next four days, me and a couple other gals will be sharing Back to School projects with you. I will have a RAK up every day too. :) So let's begin this fun...

My son has to have those composition notebooks for school, and while they do look cool by itself, I made a cover that he can slip over the notebook and make it personalized. :) Here it is:



Those papers and stickers are all from Echo Park. Here are some close up's:





You can see on that last picture how I tucked the notebook in.

And here is today's RAK...all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog:


It is the Life is Good collection from Echo Park. :)

And finally, here is what you can win by participating in Back to School blog hop. There will be one lucky winner chosen from comments on all 3 of the blogs from all 4 days. :) So visit everyday and comment on all three blogs for the best chance!



It is the Report Card collection from October Afternoon. :)

Here are the other two blogs to check out:


Also, we would love for you to share your Back to School projects with us! I will put up a link to it on my next post. :)

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!

Oh I absolutely love this idea! I was just looking at my sons school supply list and he needs book covers. Maybe I will try and create something myself rather than buy them! Thanks for sharing this with us!

That is a wonderfully big RAK you are giving away!! So strange that you guys are gearing up for back to school. It is so different here in SA. Our school year ends at the beginning of DEC and our kids go back to school towards the end of JAN!!

You are so sweet with your RAKs daily and I am so appreciative of the one that you sent to me last month!

I hope you receive many blessings today and that you know your kindness means so much to those you are sharing it with everyday.

Have a wonderful Friday!
