BERRY Best Teacher!

This week we were to make a template with a "Back to School" theme. I decided to go the non-traditional apples, letters, bright colors, etc! I love pink and thought of the sentiment last night that would be perfect. So I got up this morning and luckily enough I didn't wake up until after 6:30! That is a first in a long time so I took advantage of sleeping in.....(my explanation for my late post!) What I wanted to put on the inside were those little candy strawberries, but of course I don't have any so you will just have to pretend. I used Lauren's new Template "Fold n-Go"......LOVE IT! It is so darn cute and very, very easy to assemble. I used the smaller version that comes with the package....all for $5!

I stamped the larger strawberry from one of my favorite PTI sets, Green Thumb. Then I added the strawberries on the tag from Vintage Picnic. I colored in my BERRY with my copics and added a little ribbon to finish my project! I really like how it turned out!

Go check out the other gals creations and be sure to link yours up to Mr. Linky on Lauren's Blog. Lauren is picking 5 lucky projects each week called the "My Time to Shine"!
Have a great weekend!

Oh my gosh Alicia this is spectacular - SO berry sweet *tee hee* and I'm sure greatly appreciated by the teacher. Great idea and love how that new template works up.

WOW! This is so pretty!! I love pink also, especially combined with olive or leaf green. What a great way to use the strawberries, and I really love that you didn't color them red! Sometimes we get so stuck in a rut with the color we think something should be, you know? Love how this turned out. Your tag and the ribbon are PERFECT! I was so wishing I had the teacher stamp set last night...but to no avail. So, I went with a gift for Tia :O)

Can't wait to hear what you got at Michaels! I haven't been since I talked to you, but I'm cooking something up with the supplies I did buy! Tia and I went shopping ALL DAY today. Seriously. Left at 8:30 and JUST got home (7:45). I hope to talk to you soon also. Maybe if tomorrow is slow :)

Have a great weekend, my friend. I'll talk to you soon.
