Monday Christmas School Project

Happy Monday!

Did you have a great weekend?  We sure did! We also brought up all the Christmas decorations and placed them in the living room.  I will set to decorate the day after Thanksgiving!  I have to say I am getting in the holiday mood now!

Speaking of the Holiday Mood- Jack's first grade class has a holiday project and Jack and I had so much fun.  The project was to decorate a cereal box with Christmas decorations and to bring in 30 Christmas cards.   Each day till Christmas the kids have to write cards to their classmates and teachers in the building.  This is to practice their writing skills and the box is to hold the cards they will receive.

So here is the card that I made for Jack.  I used my Paper Smooches stamps to create this card.
Just a basic card but I like the CAS look and because I had to make 30 of them - they were so easy!

For the box I used some cardstock and then some Imaginisce pattern paper and die cuts.  I love how it turned out.

I sprinkled the paper with some of the new Heidi Swapp sprays in gold and red then added some twine from The Stringery

I just love that Santa!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a sketch and layout for you!  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
