"Back to School" Challenge for Exploring Cricut and More!

Hello and Happy Monday!
Ok, I know Mondays aren't always the happiest, but I do have  new challenge to announce over at Exploring Cricut and More!
"Back to School" is the theme and all you have to do is create anything school related. Maybe it's a card, or tag, or note to put in a lunch box, perhaps a layout or pocket page for the first day of school. Maybe even a teacher gift or a gift card holder for your favorite student. Really....there are so many possibilities.
I have decided to share with you some bulletin board decor I have created for the boys. I normally only do these boards for the first few years of homeschooling.  (it will be different only having the two first graders since Sara has graduated and is starting college)

I used the Create a Friend Cartridge for the word art "Bookworm" and "Back to School", and the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge for the "Read" word art.  Since we embrace the classical method of education, our history for this year will be studying the Ancient Times. I thought it would be fun to have a bulletin board to showcase some of our projects and used the Cuttin Up cartridge for the font and the My World cartridge for the images.

Create a Friend Cartridge:
"Bookworm" found on page 8 and cut at 5.0" including the layers and shadow
"Back to School" found on page 4 cut at 5.0" including the layers and shadow

Sesame Street Seasons Cartridge:
"Read" found on page 56 and cut at 3.0" using the word feature

My World Cartridge:
"King Tut" and "Pyramids" found on page 49 and cut at 3.75" using the layer and shadow feature
"Parthenon" found on page 55 and cut at 5.0" using the layer and shadow feature.

For our science pocket chart I used the Cuttin Up Cartridge and cut the letters at 3.0" including the shadow.

Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to enter this week's challenge
