"Back to School" Cricut Crawl

 Welcome to Recollection Alley 
and the  
EIGHTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...
Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!
Summer is coming to an end and we are 
all getting ready for BACK TO SCHOOL...
each Design Team member will be 
an original  
that includes a SCHOOL RELATED  item, 
such as crayons, rulers, pencils, book, 
school bus, etc. along with at least 
ONE Cricut Cut.

If you've come from visiting Jamie at 
Scrap Queen, you're in the right place! 
If you've just happened across my blog 
and would like to play along with our 
 Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a 
"Back to School" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?
For my project...

I made a file box for a teacher friend, who happens to follow my blog.  But, it's okay...
she has already snatched it up and taken 
it to school.  LOL
Sorry, I don't have any other views to 
show you.  Trust me it is a file box.
I found these at Goodwill.  I bought everyone 
that they had at that store. If I can find 
enough of them I will be conducting a 
class with them.

Here is the rest of the story:

Letters - Plantin Schoolbook
Bus - Locker Talk
Patterned paper - DCWV
Paint, rick rack and pencils - my stash 

  Since this was such a hit at my local store while I was making it....I decided to give away one
of these undecorated boxes as my Blog Candy during this Cricut Crawl. I will throw in some paper to decorate it with too!

All you need to do is be a follower of my 
blog and leave me a comment on this post with your contact information.
Easy Peasy!

Now it's your turn! Let's see your BACK TO SCHOOL projects! Make sure to include a Cricut Cut somewhere on your project!

Next stop...Jayne's blog, Jayne Designs. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!
Happy Crawling!
