Crayon Back to School Note

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it.  The challenge for this week is:

Back to School FUN!!

My 6 year old will be starting the 1st grade, so this card is for him...

My 8 year old will be starting 3rd grade. 

As you can see I mounted these card super simply...
 just a white A2 card base with a red mat.

I created these images by scanning in a box of crayons... then I added my own text (after erasing the Crayola stuff).  I went online and downloaded a font called "Porky's" that was the closest match to the Crayola font I could find. Then I placed the wording onto the crayon box (complete with the colored outlines on the lettering).  These are super quick printables (once they are created)... I just totally fell in love with them.

In fact I loved them soooo much, I made one for each grade
 (Pre-school through 6th) ..... to share with you.


Here are the other grades.  You can download them for FREE via 4shared.  If you have any problems with the downloads, please leave me a comment and I'll email them directly to you.
