Ahhh...back to the routine

Both kiddos start school today - yeah!! I'm so excited for them. Lots of new experiences and friends to make. Summer was fun, but it's so nice to get back into our normal family routine.

While we were at "Meet The Teacher Day" yesterday, we noticed that two other girls in class have the exact same Hello Kitty backpack as my daughter.

I promised her that as soon as we got home, I would make a little tag for her to hang on her backpack, so she would always know which one was hers. Crisis averted!

This was super easy to make. About a month ago, I saw clear badge holders at the $1 store in packages of 10. I figured I could use them for a class project at some point so I picked up a couple boxes.

The opening for the image was about 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" - perfect for "Lily". I paper pieced her dress with SU's Bali Breeze and colored the rest of the image with my Copics and Sakura glaze pens. Then I just embellished with some ribbon scraps, flowers and a pink heart charm that I saved from a package of highlighters from the $1 spot at Target. (see...I knew I'd use it for something!)
Hope you like it!
