Once Upon A Book Fair

Side view so you can see tulle and book popped out

Another month, another contest Box Tops contest.  This month my contest also promotes our upcoming Book Fair themed Once Upon a Book Fair.  So Dustin's (aka Doodle Dragon Studios) image was perfect for the bulletin board.  But then again, I think I say that every month!

Grass additions have always been so frustrating for me.  I never could seem to get the blades of grass just the way I wanted.  This time I had a lightbulb moment... use my Martha Steward grass edge punch to trace it with the projector!  Really?  Really?  It was that easy?  There's your tip of the day... use a punch and trace it whatever it is you need.  My MS edge punches have a whole new life to them!

  1. Love this! Sure I can't talk you and your family into moving to Washington? :o) We collected $1,000 on our last Box Tops check. You would be an awesome addition. We have a great school.

  2. I absolutely ADORE your bulletin boards. I am on the board at my daughter's school's PTO and I need you to do a tutorial on how to make these images so big. They are just too cute! Love it!
