Back to School Day 4

**The following giveaways are still open: 2 on Back to School Day 1, Back to School day 2, and Back to School day 3.

And we have reached our final day of the Back to School blog hop. :) Hope you have enjoyed it! Here's my project for the day:



I took a cheap white board and altered it. I made a frame to go around it. I put magnets on the back too so I can put it on my refrigerator. I can keep track of homework or mark who has finished their homework on it. I plan to make it more like a chart...have spots for M-F and my boys names...then the can x it off when they finish their homework for the day.

Here are some close up's:






And now for today's RAK...it's the new Togetherness line from Cosmo Cricket:


I can't wait to play with this line myself. :) All you have to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment on this post! :)

And remember, you can also still win the Report Card collection from October Afternoon. :) There will be one lucky winner chosen from comments on all 3 of the blogs from all 4 days. :) So visit everyday and comment on all three blogs for the best chance!

Pamela this is super cute! I just bought one of these plain white boards as well as the reusable calendar white board at Staples last week! What a cute way to jazz them up!

So cute! I never thought to alter a white board. A great place to keep track of homework.

Traci S. said...

Wow! I just love this idea! A personal wipey board! You could even make one for over each child's bed! They could hang their awards, or favorite art on it...and change it out as they want. They could leave you little notes on it...and you could write them back!

How fun!

Thanks for the opportunity to win such fabulous paper kit! How exciting! Thank you for your generosity.

He IS Able,
