Back to School Fun

Nine of my ten grandkids are in school this year (if you count the one in pre-school).  I always loved getting ready for school - new pencils, paper, notebooks, etc.  In fact, I went to town about two weeks ago and ended up in Target and Walmart.  I went crazy.  I wanted to buy all the school supplies displayed.  I wanted it all - really!
Well, enough of my compulsive behavior problems.  I thought it would be fun to make each of the kids a book mark depicting going back to school.  I have already given away four of them (forgot to take pictures!).  Here are two and two in another post.

Aren't these images so cute?  They are Doodle Pantry colored digitals.  Saves lots of time to print them off and not have to color them?  Look at their cute backpacks.  You can find them HERE.  There is also a Doodle Pantry Challenge to enter. Check it out.

So as you can see, these are pretty simple: print, cut, mount, add twine.

 Pile It On - cuddly critters
Simon Says - animal antics
Gem of a Challenge - animals
Your Next Stamp - books
Great Impressions - animals
