For my project I wanted to make something fun and interactive for my daughter to keep up on her 'school' skills in the summer. She LOVES this so I think it will help out a lot. Last year we didn't use any charts but we did find out that if we did her reading and stuff first thing in the morning then we would remember to get it done. Otherwise the day would get busy with fun summer activities and this summer learning would get pushed aside. This chart should help too since each day each item will start up in the 'TO DO' box and then she can move them down to the 'COMPLETED' box as she finishes up each item. This chart is approximately 6" x 11"

I made the background using Microsoft Excel. I'm an accountant so I am a bit of a spreadsheet nerd. Then I printed my spreadsheet on some super cute paper from DCWV's Mod-Retro Stack. I stamped a darling little heart from Emma's stamp set My One and Only in the corner. I cut the pieces for my project from various cartridges at about 2" each.
This cute little book is from the Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite cartridge. I stamped it with a My Creative Time stamp from the set called 'My Teacher Rocks,' and I also used the adorable Peachy Keen stamp set called 'Happy Lashes'.
This cute little pencil came from the Locker Talk Cricut cartridge. I stamped his cute face with a Simple Simon face stamp by PKS.
I made the little chalkboard myself. I used the super cute Woodgrain background stamp by Market Street Stamps. For the cute face I white embossed a darling Simple Sally face and for the numbers I welded them together using my Gypsy and the Pooh Font cartridge.
And for this cute little kitty, I used Create-a-Critter for the cat and Pooh Font for the letters. The adorable face is a Critter face stamp from Peachy Keen stamps.
I laminated everything so they will SURVIVE the summer. I have my own personal laminator that I use for lots of little things for my children. I seriously LOVE it. Then I attached everything with Velcro.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project today. Hugs- Glora
