Back To School-Cutting Cafe

Good Morning and Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you had a great weekend! When Regina said the theme for The Cutting Cafe Blog this week would be "back to school" I knew I was going to have fun! I had 3 cards to do but never realized there are SO many files to choose from! I had a tough time deciding which sets to use. The Design Team's projects will be posted later in the week so be sure to check it out by clicking here. Be sure to check out the contests and give aways too...Regina always has something going on! There is also a Design Team Call so if you like working with digital stamps and fun templates, here is your chance to be with one of the BEST Design Teams around.
