One Smart Cookie

Well, it's back to school for the students and Teachers, which means back to the regular janitorial routine for me.  Even though it means the summer is nearly over I do welcome the beginning of the school year. It means the extra hard work is done for another year and hopefully things at work will settle down a bit. (I'm a real routine kinda girl).
The beginning of school also means that my husband or I go to our eldest daughter's house every morning to get our 3 grandkids up, ready and driven to school. (Our daughter is a teacher but she teaches at a different school, in a different town, so she has to leave early).
Today also starts the new challenge over at Meljen's Designs and quite fittingly it is "Back To School". For my DT project I decided to make a treat for the kids to give to their teachers (kids just loving doing that & I love making use of the projects I create!).
So we baked a couple of batches of cookies, "Chocolate Chip" and "Chocolate Crinkle". Then we put a dozen in each of our 4 clear treat bags and topped them off with this Bag Topper I made using 2 of Meljen's digital images. The front features "Smart Cookie" and the back is one from her word art. ( I couldn't find it in the shop but I'm sure Melissa would find it for you).
Finished Project
It says: "With You As My Teacher I Should Be "1" (One) Smart Cookie !"
I actually made up 4 of these bags, they were quick and easy. You could even adapt them to give one to the Principal, School Secretary, Bus Driver or maybe even that hard working School Janitor!
Anyway, I do hope you will join in the fun at Meljen's Designs ( and share your "Back To School" project with us.
