My Cricut Craft Room Theme Thursday--Back To School!!

Good morning, friends!!  As you are reading this, we are busy running all over the house looking for lost shoes, backpacks, sweaters, etc.  It is back to school day in our household!  Hubby and I are overjoyed!  I wish the kids were as excited. 

Today's project is going to help us stay more organized this year.  With a 17 year old and and 8 year old in two very different schools, it gets kind of confusing as to who is doing what when.  My son is famous for saying things like, "but I told you we have an all day competion!"  an hour before the competition!!  Grrr!!!

 Well, I went to the Dollar Tree and found these two magnetic whiteboards.  So excited!  They were only a $1.00 each!  Then I took some vinyl.  Red is for Vince and purple is for Alyssa.  Their favorite colors or did you figure that one out already? LOL!!

Using A Child's Year, I cut out their names at 1.5 inches and the the read image and the child reading at 2.25 inches.

I used contact paper to take them off the vinyl backing and laid them on the white boards, placing them where I wanted them to be.

Viola!!  We can write little reminders about where we need to be at what time and we are ready for the next school year!!

I hope you enjoyed my simple project today.  Please go back over to My Cricut Craftroom to see what amazing projects my sister design team members have in store for you!
