The Write Stuff

So over this past week, I sat down with my daughter one afternoon to teach her to write her name. She did pretty well but was still having a little trouble with the "m". A couple of days later I found a dry erase notebook with uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers in it and purchased it for her. She practiced all afternoon in her new little book and by that evening she wrote her name!!!

I created this layout to document her learning to write her name! 




I came across a new challenge blog today called Frosted Designs. They happen to be hosting a Back to School challenge so I am submitting this layout! My Layout made Top 3 at Frosted Designs!!


Supplies:
Paper: White card stock
Patterned Paper: Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket and yellow patterned paper from the Mango Frost collection by DCWV
Tools: tiny stapler, spiral punch by Stampin' Up!, nail file, and DYMO label buddy with black tape
Ink: Tea Dye distress ink by Ranger
Other: Chipboard letters, Lucky You chipboard punch outs by Colorbok, red paperclip, Vera yellow vinyl thickers by American Crafts, and file tab from office supply store.
