back to school ...

It's that time of year - kiddos and teachers are going back to school for another memorable year!

Last spring, when I was making an imovie photo slide show for my son's second grade class I came across this song and immediately fell in love with it! So click on this link & listen to this fabulous back to school song!

I have helped in my son's classes during reading time the past few years, so as a welcome back to school gift, I wanted to make a bookmark for each child in my son's class and what would be more fun than a third grader receiving a fabulous MOSD acrylic bookmark!

We stamped with StazOn inks; my black & brown inks were dryer than the other colors so I found them easier to stamp on the acrylic. I found that wood mounted stamps stamped a clearer image on the clear acrylic, however any movement with any stamp would create a blurry image ... but no worries as a little bit of rubbing alcohol and a paper towel took the ink right off! :)













Thanks for stopping by the MOSD blog - here's to a great school year for you & yours!
