Our kids are starting back at school today, and I set up a little something to get everyone excited:
I used props from around the house to pull this together, and used some Lawn Fawn dies to add some fun, crafty touches.
I rolled red fondant into little apple balls and placed a toothpick stem and die-cut leaf to make an easy cupcake topper! The school-lined paper cupcake wrapper adds to the look.
These decorated milk bottles are my fave! They look like cut apples, thanks to the little raindrop-turned-seeds die (from Spring Showers.) I also added a stitched leaf to each straw, which adds a nice pop of color!
I made a flash-card banner, using Louie's 123s and the Large Stitched Journaling Card.
To make the plus signs, I just cut my own strips of paper and adhered them together.
I used the set-up as a backdrop for my kids' back to school portraits:
I can't believe Sofia is starting grade 6 today! She is looking forward to being on top this year ::wink::
Thomas begins grade 4. This kid is a munchkin. I want to ruffle his hair and straighten his glasses. Always.
Maia is a bundle of excited nerves for today - she's always apprehensive to start something new, but she gets a real desk in grade 1!
Happy back to school!
