KBD Challenge--Back to School Theme

Hey all and happy Friday!! 

Today I am hosting a Back to School themed challenge in the KBD Challenges Facebook group. 

 The Challenge  starts  TODAY Friday August 12th and ends Thursday August 25th.  In order to participate all you have to do is join the KBD Challenges Facebook Group and submit a project with a Back to School theme using at least one KaDoodle Bug file. 

***The project needs to be posted in the group prior to midnight on August 25th for a chance to win a KBD file of your choice. 

 For my project, I decided to make a wreath for my cousins son to give to his Kindergarten teacher on the first day of school.  I've seen a few of those Crayon wreaths posted on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for Kindergarten and decided to give it a try!

 I created my wreath base using 2 embroidery hoops (a 12" and an 8") and a box of 64 crayons and a box of 24 crayons.  This could be done using the one 64 box, but I wanted to avoid using brown. I then hot glued them on to the hoops.

I wanted to decorate my wreath using school items, so I used several files to achieve the look I was going for.  
 School Day Bookworms set: Apple with worm and the stack of books
Cutesy School Owls set:  School bus and the chalkboard
Rockin School Monsters set: Pencils and Scissors

Here is a close up of each one:

For the name, I used some dies that I had on hand-- Jaded Blossom Alphabet Dies and Stitched Square Dies.  The cute little "#1 Teacher" phrase is also from Jaded Blossom off of their School Time Greetings set.

So now that I shared my project, come share yours!  Come join us in the challenge, can't wait to see your fabulous creations! 

I am also submitting this to the Jaded Blossom Challenge
