School Is “Cool” Blog Hop

Welcome  to day 1 of The Krazy Crafting Crew's

School Is Cool Blog  Hop
If you arrived from Katina's blog you are in  the
right place. If you were lucky enough the stumble onto  this hop
you can start at the beginning here

For my project its kind of hard for me to think of school projects since I dont have kids.
So I though about just a pretty generic card.
I used chalkboard paper for the yellow of the bus and for the black in the background paper
I used a pack of 8.5 by 11 cardstock from Michaels to make the back ground I cut strips attached them then used the sew easy tool to stitch them together.
I used a bistro marker to write on the bus
A bistro marker is a chalk marker
I used the bus from doodle charms
The twine is from my shop I used marigold and maraschino I figured they were good school colors.
I also used two orange buttons and some ivory Jute from my store as well. 

As some of you know Im studying to be an elementary school teacher and I cant wait to get in to teaching and have little kids bring me cards and such. Cuz no doubt I will be their fav teacher hehe.
