Its time to go back to school with Cosmo Cricket

Is it really the end of summer already? It has flown by so quickly, and as all the kids go back to school all of us at cuttlebug challenge blog have made some inspiring back to school goodies using supplies from cosmo cricket {I heart this paper} the kit is called "girl Friday", and I also used the "boyfriend" kit. I felt like it was Christmas when I opened my box and saw these gorgeous and luxurious papers inside!! Lucky Me.This sweet miniature backpack pattern can be found at splitcoast stampers, mine features a ribbon closure anchored by large white grommets installed with the cropodile {one of the best tools known to paper junkies} I used the score it to score all of the little pieces...made it super quick. If you dont have one...what are you waiting for??? All of the textured core'dinations paper was embossed with the diamond folder, and cut to size. Of course I filled this bitty backpack with one of back to schools essential items erasers...or is that just me that needs 27 erasers? :)Pencils anyone? How about a really cute pencil case enrobed in this super fun pencil paper from the boyfriend kit? I cut out the top note die with my bug and embossed it with the diamond folder again to keep my theme going. I made a fun orange arrow pointing to the monogram, not that anyone else will have one just like it in her class, but we girls do love to plaster every item we own with our "letter" dont we?!! Pop on over to the cuttlebug challenge blog and join us this week, we would love to see your creations for back to school. Plus you could win some cosmo cricket goodies! I know that sounds good to you!
