Back To School Challenge over at the Creative Cutter Room!

Ready for another super fun challenge at the Creative Cutter Room?

We have a Fun challenge for you today!

The Challenge: Create A new project with the theme Back to School!
This is the perfect challenge to get some cards ready to have on hand when needed!

Here are some examples of notes you may need to send to the teacher:

The dog really did eat the homework.
My Son/Daughter told me, that her friend told her, that her sister heard....
Please excuse my Son/Daughter from last night's homework we were really busy last night.
What project?
Why is this is the first I am hearing of this?
Sorry we are late! We thought it was Saturday!
Are you sure it was my child that started it?

A beautiful handmade card can really come in handy in any of the above situations!

Have a funny story?? Please leave it in my comments!

Here is the project I made for my Daughter's teacher:

Apple is cut from DoodleCharms
Embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder Bloom Dots
Covered in UTEE
Liquid pearls
Paper from Scrap

    When my daughter was in K my husband worked for an irrigation company and the teacher was asking the kids about what their parents did for a living. My daughter told the class that her dad worked on perverts. (supposed to be pivots) We still crack up over that one. LOL
