Blah to Oo-lah-lah


Happy Thursday {evening}!!!


School starts back in central Texas on Monday and if you’re anything like me, you want your kiddos to go to school with cute schtuff.  That being said, I decided to “decorate” a blah, boring, white 3-ring binder that my daughter will transport back & forth to school with her homework, notes, etc.  This one is for my youngest daughter, who will be going into second grade, but something tells me my older two will want one too.  She picked out the papers and I sent her on her merry way while I went to work!  She came in and out of my scraproom a few times, but I wouldn’t let her past the doorway until I was completely done!  LOL



Here is a shot of a blah, boring, white 3-ring binder.  Not that you don’t know what one of these looks like, but hey……ya never know!  ;o)  (FYI:  This is a stock photo and not the binder I altered)




This is the front of her binder, with her first name.  Note that I double-matted the “Recess” tag to make it stand out a little more?  I mean, let’s face it, what kid will tell you that Recess isn’t his/her favorite ‘subject’ in school?  ha ha!!



This is the back of her binder, which is similar to the front, with our last name. 

Her binder is a 1/2” binder, which left like NO space on the spine to ‘decorate”, so I just added a piece of maroon paper and called it done. 

The consensus from my to-be-2nd-grader?  She LOVED it!  That makes a mom SMILE!!! 

Until next time………
