Happy August y'all!!!  I cannot believe that it is time to be thinking about school again!  This homeschool family is still enjoying our much needed summer break.  There's nothing like enjoying the outdoors to feel relaxed.  And it's with that feeling that I created this month's inspiration for you!

Inspiration for the book bag came from my son's quilted preschool backpack (he's 16 now!).  The stitched detailing, the embossed buttons, and the colors brought smiles to this boy mom's face as this 3D project came to life thanks to the amazing All Dressed Up dies.  The Mini Open Book Easel card along side it was a must for the Challenge Grid!!!

Can't you just imagine a teacher having these on your child's school desk with the book bag filled with a box of crayons, chalk or a special treat alongside the book card with images and/or sentiments to make your child excited to be back at school?!?   The possibilities are endless for themes and colors!  

I hope that today's project has inspired you to participate in The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge, #JOSTTT020.  Please be sure to pop over to receive more inspiration from the other design team members and I look forward to seeing your entry (entries) on the blog!


Have a blessed day!

  1. What a fun project! Love the bold colors and the stitching on the book bag, and the book easel card is really cute. Here's hoping all the kids get to go back to school in person sometime this school year!
