School house ROCKS! :) with Unity :)

Don't forget to check out my UNITY blog candy HERE
Okay.. does anyone remember that show.. School House Rock?? :) Dating myself right now.. hehe.. Let me first apologize for the bazillion photos. I know I don't usually have that many.. but I thought this project warranted them..
This is a fun School house that I made for my son's 6th grade teacher (for back to school) :).. You know what the coolest part is.. SHE WAS MY 6th GRADE teacher TOO :) He is super excited to go back, and he loves school. I love that he is such a wonderful student... :)
Okay.. :) onto my project and the details.
I used velum for the windows to give it that "real" effect.
The trees here are from a Unity Stamp set.. called "A little playtime" ( I don't have this set, but my friend Susan does.. so she stamped a couple for me.. :) Thanks Susan! ) I so want it.. it's on my "wish list" right now..:) I colored the trees with Copic Markers, and the "door knob" is a little button.
Okay moving on.. The "ABC" on the front of my school house and...
The cool 2 stepped number pattern on the top of the little tower are both from the June 2011 kit at Unity.. Oh and the best part.. is this kit is on sale right now for $20.00 what a steal.. :)
My little school house opens up.. so I can put treats, etc. inside.. :) so I did just that..
Woohoo.. Look at some of the loot.. :)
I used the adorable Just Circles set from unity and made little tags to go on the treat for his teacher.. I found this adorable poem.. and I "fixed" it to work my son's teacher to say the things I wanted to say.. :) I placed each tag with an eyelet and twine on the object.. :) oh and I used copic markers to color the tags as well... I hope she likes it.. Oh I distressed the whole thing too.. :)

Here it is if anyone wants to use it..

Band-Aid:For when things get a little rough.

Life-Savers:Because you are a life saver to so many children.

Marbles:To replace those you might lose from time to time.

Mounds:For the mounds of fun you are going to share this year.

Paper Clip:For when you need help holding things together.

Nuts:To remind you to be a little Nutty sometimes.

Rubber Band:To remember to be flexible.

Starburst:To give you a burst of energy when you need it.

Eraser:To remind you everyone makes mistakes.

Gum:To help the class stick together.

If you are still with me.. THANK YOU!!!!! :) HUGS
