If you came from Lucy ~ then you are at the right spot! If you just happened to drop by and would like to join the fun of this hop then start at the beginning at  Connie -
Now that we have all the legistics taken care of let's have some fun!!!!  For my project for this hop... I was stumped for some time. Not sure of what I would be creating  and I seemed to be going back and forth in my mind of Cricut or should I try my Silhouette  (I have had my machine now for 4 month and not have used it). So I started looking through the Silhouette store and then I saw what I needed...

 This is the box Jon will get on his first day back to school starting 2nd Grade. The box was easy to cut and for the most part pretty easy to put together. The directions are actually on the page where you see the project to buy at the store.  Here are some more pictures of the progress on how to finish the box.

I hope you had fun and got inspired to maybe start your own "Back to School" project.

Here's our lineup in case you get lost:
