Have you used the colorful and whimsical Mother Goose? This fun collection is perfect for projects for kids of all ages. The bright and brilliant color palette lends itself to so many creations. Today, Keri Sallee will leave you with a "Wow!" with her gorgeous altered tray using Mother Goose. Then, Donna Espiritu gives you the best idea for back-to-school with a backpack with a corresponding mini album. It's going to be such a fun day here on the blog.
Keri amazes with the project below! We are in love with this beautiful altered tray.
"When we discuss 'Back to School' I go into sad mommy mode because I feel like my kids are growing up too much: my oldest will start middle school, my middle started kindergarten last year and this year is my youngest last year of preschool.
Like every mom, I love to remember the times when they were little and nothing says childhood memories like 'Mother Goose.' With this project, I wanted to have fun with the Mother Goose stories, as well as give a place to hold memories.
There is a snap guide for this. :)" ~Keri

Donna made these precious backpacks with mini albums. We love how each one is unique and different. What gorgeous colors!
"I made these little backpacks with coordinating cute accordion mini-album inside, can be used for those pocket/wallet-sized school photos of your little ones or in my case, my nieces."~Donna
