Challenge of the Week{Back to School}

Welcome back to another crafty and creative week!

School has started for many kids around the country and that means teacher gifts, new organization, and getting  back into a routine.

It also means

Back to School crafts!

I bought this wood apple from The Wood Connection.


These stores are found in Utah{SLC area} but they now ship select items. I am so happy about that since I live in AZ and love this store! If you love wood crafts, you will love checking out The Wood Connection.

I decided to make  Back to School décor in an attempt to cheer up the kids about school starting. Attempt, it was.

Were they excited? Not so much but that is life.

For this project all I needed was paint and some scrapbook paper I had in my stash.


I decided not to go with the tradition red for the apple. Why not a green one?


Mod podged my scrapbook paper on and added some ribbon for embellishments.

What have you created for Back to School? Maybe it is a teacher gift. Never hurts to start the year off with treats for those hard working teachers. Maybe it is those cute back to school photos you want to share or a photo prop you made.

We cannot wait to see what you have created.

If you made it and it is  to celebrate Back to School,  then share it!

This week we also have another fabulous guest judge so come on over and join the fun!

Challenge yourself and stretch those creative muscles!

Always remember to Create, Share and Inspire!
