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.


Create with Mother Goose Today!

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

Those back packs and accordion minis are to die for. I may just have to try it with the few pages of 8x8 I have left.

The upcycled box of Mother Goose joy and love is wonderful. So many layers to see and discover more with each look.

The backpack with mini is ingenius. So cute and creative.

Mother Goose rhymes are something we can all relate to. As a child I was fascinated with the whimsical characters and bright colors. This collection brings me back to a very happy and magical time in my life. I just want to say thank you to G45 for reviving the memories that are dear to my heart. Very cute projects today.
