Simon Says...Back to School






What an appropriate theme the team over at Simon Says came up with this week! It was back to school for me this week. A time I look forward to for the simple fact that I love new school supplies! And it's fun to get the year started with a new group of Smarties, tho' that part of this time of year is rather exhausting...I always forget what "babies" they are when they start Kindergarten. So, I altered this tin as a part of a swap/challenge during the Christmas in July Crop over at CardMaker magazine Card Swaps message board. Lora enticed us to sign up for the swap...then announced the theme, which was to alter a tin to depict our favorite childhood toy. Well, I loved to play school and I had to have school supplies for that. *grin* These three views of my tin show the top, front side & inside (the goodies displayed with the tin were included for my partner in the swap...and I went with the snowflake theme for them since not everyone is as nuts about school supplies as I am)! The paper I used to alter my tin is from Stampin' Up's Summer Picnic DSP.
