 Are you ready to head back to school? Let's go!

I used a flat wooden wreath to create my project.  I wrapped the wreath in yellow floral ribbon and then hot glued 4 (24 ct) boxes of crayons to it.  I cut out some cute images and letter from various cricut cartridges and hot glued them to the wreath.  I want to add a bow to the top but I can't decide what kind of ribbon I want to use.  LOL 

For my second project, I made a back to school card.  My background paper is from DCWV and my image was cut from Autumn Celebrations Cricut cart.  The stamp is from Cardz TV! 

 Up next is JESSICA!

Here's our lineup in case you get lost:
