Another Would You Believe It Wednesday?!

I know most of my fellow design team members love Card Creating Tuesday, and so do I, but Wednesday is a challenge! This week, I am again sharing some of the creations I made at my daughters' school. As you can imagine, with the economy in the toilet, school districts have cut budgets beyond recognition. All the little "extras" are gone. Teachers sometimes spends $1000's of their own money to make sure kids have a stimulating, enticing learning environment. I wanted to do my part! Here's just a few things I've made. More to follow in the coming weeks!

First up is the Van Sciver for Vision Eyeglass Donation box!  Everyday Paper Dolls provided the eyeglasses, Don Juan the words!  The scalloped border was from Plantin Schoolbook.  Yes, I made the nose!  Just folded up some paper, and voila a schnoz-o-la!
Our school has an after school program and they asked me to make them a sign to show off their art work!  Printing Press is such a fun font!  It does kinda remind me of a ransom note, but I still like it! 
Lunch Rules!  Okay, sometimes we all need to follow the rules!  This sign is over 7 feet tall!  Plantin Schoolbook and Locker Talk, PERFECT for schools! 
These next two pictures are our Writer's Wall.  The quote "Today is a great day to learn something new" is in vinyl and is permanently on the wall.  Each month a new class displays their latest work!  This was from our Resource Class who learned all about the Iditarod.  An actual dog from the race came to visit the kids!  It was amazing!  To help create this wall I used, 50 States, Everyday Paper Dolls, Zooballoo for the mountains, Graphically Speaking for Fearless, & My Community for the dogs. 

We also follow the Character Counts Program.  There are 6 pillars of Character that the children strive to live by and each month 4-6 kids from each grade are recognized and their picture goes up on the bulletin board. 
Last but not least, is the Glass Case Projects,  Here we display writing and artwork to share.  It changes each month and on this month it was the book Where the Wild Things Are!  Home Decor for the crown!
