Back To School Teacher Gifts

School started for my kiddos this week, and everyone is happy about it.  My oldest son started sixth grade.  Big man on campus.  Last year of elementary school.  Almost in Junior High.  Gosh, where does the time go?  And then my baby is starting Pre-K.  At the big boy school.  With a uniform and a back pack.  And he'll be riding the bus soon.  Sigh.  It's been a tough week.

In anticipation of the new school year, I made a couple of teacher's gifts for Cricut Circle and I thought I'd share them with you today.

Welcome Chalkboard

This was such a fun project!  I used the Birthday Bash and Simply Charmed cartridges along with some vinyl.  Won't this be cute hanging in my son's Pre-K teacher's classroom? 

Altered Candle and Thanks Tag

And for this little set, I used the Imagine Vintage, Straight From the Nest, and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges.  I loved the bright colors of Nikki Sivils' paper paired with the chalkboard and text Imagine papers.  Such a great contrast!

Thanks for stopping by today!  We're off to school to deliver a couple of gifts to butter up the teachers while my kiddos are still somewhat behaving themselves.  See ya soon!
