Back 2 Skool we go....

Actually my kids have been back in school since August 1st!  At leaset it wasn't in July like two years back!  With just a few more days till they have been back for a month, we are busy with loads of fun stuff for my daughter which is now an 8th grader, and my son which is now a Señor!  Yikes!  Just think, just when I was getting close to being out of the woods.... I went and had another baby, he's of course now 2 years old getting really close to three in a three months, but I have to do it all over again with him!  Geeez!

Okay, okay, enough about me right let's get onto the fun new release happening over on my SBS blog!

The new Back 2 Skool Teens have started to appear and are ready for roll call!

Today I am going to start you all off with two previews, I actually have three, but one of them is combined with an image that is not yet released/previewed until tomorrow when it is released!

In an effort to help my kid be "teacher's pet" I have created these fun buckets for each of her teachers...

The first one features Book Pile Miller for her English teacher (hope she's not upset it's not a female image).  He is ready to hit those books and get this year started!  I used We R Memory Keepers School line paper from last year and the pail is from Stampendous (but you can find that at simplybettystamps.com too).  I feel my buckets were very simple, but I am sure they teachers will still appreciate them.  I should have gone with larger buckets as I was unable to do much as far as decorating these small buckets.  But again, it's the thought that counts and well the pails are filled with sweets!  I did not color this Miller, my friend Dawn did as she was helping me out with all my coloring, I have loads to go still until the end of the year with new sutff!!  Didn't she do an amazing job with Miller!!?


Next up, and she is one of my favorites in this line, alwasy so Sassy... Sporty Lola!  Is that green hair not the best ever or what?!!  I absolutely love how it turned out!  I keep telling my self I have to take some online lessons or something to color like the pros, but this one did turn out pretty good, well her hair did anyway!  She is just the prettiest little basketball player around!  I made this bucket for Rio's P.E. teacher of course.  Used the same paper as I did for Miller's bucket from We R Memory Keppers.

Here's a view of both my buckets.

One last view from the tops of the buckets!

I hope you have enjoyed my preview images and projects, please leave a comment you never know where the winner is going to be selected from!  Thank you have a great start of the week.  See you all tomorrow for the release!
