Back to School...

It's day 178 at 365 Cards, and the theme for today was 'Back to School'. I decided to make a little bulletin board project complete with a ginormous paper clip, and a calendar. This first photo shows the whole project. You can't see it, but there is a black satin ribbon at the top to hang it with....

Next is a shot of the calendar. I didn't have a lot of back to school related stamps, so I used my Printmaster Program for some of the graphics, and for the calendar page.

Here's a better view of the little 6 x 6 cork tile. I stamped a couple of TAC apples, and a TAC sentiment, which reads "these are the days to remember".

Finally, a ginormous paperclip finishes the project. These I purchased a long time ago at our local office supply store, and just haven't used them until tonight.

I hope that you all have pleasant dreams! I fought a naggy headache all day, and I'm going to give in to it soon and go to bed!

Shirley, if you are reading, I apologize for not calling you back. DS, DH and DH again, all called, and by the time they hung up the last time, it was 10:20. I will talk to you in the a.m. Enjoy your walk!

Good night all...

  11. I love the thought for the day! I'll have to tell that one to Paul. And I love your clever calendar project!

  12. This is amazingly awesome!!! I've moved my desk in my classroom this year before realizing it was not near anything magnetic or a bulletin board. I think I'll need to attempt one of these to hang on the side of the closet....in all my spare time! Beautiful work!
