Today is the first day of school for my students. After two days of meetings last week I am happy to welcome my 8th graders back. I know people say I am crazy, but I look forward to the start of the school years every year. I see so much potential in a new class and I have no doubt they will bring me all the challenges and successes I enjoy.
My school's mascot is the Mustang so this year for the main hallway I cut out two horses from Old West to place on my display. I had to color in the hoofs and glue on the hair before finishing them off by using a black marker for the detail lines. I made the second horse by flipping the design on my Gypsy horizontally.
For the letters I used the wonderful Plantin Schoolbook (I just love how the layers on this font look even if it is so old school Cricut!). I used the basic font in blue plus the layers in red. I am happy my students will see this welcome back when they walk in today! Happy Back to School to all!
