Good Afternoon Friends,
Last year for the back to school challenges that were floating around I made the above treat boxes, I just love them.  I didn't think I could even come up with anything better. I remembered last year buying this chalk board paper. Yes, How often do you need chalk board paper?

So, for this year for the back to school challenges, I wanted to give it a less sophisticated and more elementary school look, so I went for the primaries. Yep! Red, yellow, blue and because green is my favorite I had to throw it in the mix.  Instead of using chalk I used Creative Inspiration paint"winter Frost", my friend Jessica from Chick n-scrap sent me.

I knew when I got this paint that I would be using for the next creative inspiration challenge no matter what it would be.

The funny thing also is the treat box came together super easy after having made it a few times.

  10. Cute little treat boxes, Diana! So sweet!

  11. Cool back to school (cool school , hey I rhymed) projects. My daughter likes her classes and got a notetaking job for her Anatomy class. She had notetaking job last semester for her Japanese class. The college pays students to notetake for students that have a disability. She types in her notes on her laptop & emails them to the students. Best thing about it is that the notetaking helps her a lot on the class exams.
