Star Student

Ever since little Miss Nik had her freshman orientation last Friday, we’ve really had back to school on our minds. What a big year this is for us. Pete is finishing up his high school career, while Nik is just beginning hers. As you can imagine, she is both nervous and excited about all the changes this new year will bring.

My kiddos are growing up so quickly, but I know no matter how old they get, they both still love to find notes and goodies in their lunchboxes.  I mean, who doesn’t like a surprise, right? So I decided to make some back to school treats to brighten their first day. This little pencil pouch is going to get tucked into Nik’s lunchbox. I just know it’s going to really make her smile.
As some of you may remember, Little Yellow Bicycle is partnering up with us for a second week of Splash projects on the Epiphany Crafts blog. I used the scraps leftover from my mini album to create this quick and easy pocket pouch. I love that you can slip lots of school supplies or any number of treats into the pocket. I can easily see more pencils, pens, rulers, or memo pads stuffing the pouch. Or perhaps a candy bar or pixie sticks would be in order. A little journaling card slipped in with the treats is the perfect spot to jot down a few words of encouragement, too.

I just adore this fun Splash collection! Perfect for the beach and summertime, but works for way more projects than that. After all, back to school likes to be bright and happy, too.
