Back to School - CTO challenge #25

Welcome to another fun challenge at Celebrate the Occasion.  This week its Team #1's  turn to be challenged  and we had to create a project for " Back to School."   Well... its been awhile for me but I do remember those days and all the excitement that happens around this time.... especially for the parents  LOL!
Anyway, On to my project

I  used an empty cartridge box,since I have a few of those laying around, and covered it with some Cosmo Cricket paper.  The pencils and apple  are cut with the  Locker Talk  cartridge and attached with pop- dots, to add some dimension.   Now, it just needs  to to  be filled  with the school necessities such as pens ,pencils, glue, erasers, etc. and off to school they go.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. I know you'll want  to be a part of this challenge so head on over there, check out all the other fabulous projects and then enter yours.  We sure would love to see it!

I'm also entering this in 2 other Back to School challenges -
