{Back-to-School} Dictionary Page Banner

I’m still in denial that it’s back-to-school time.  Summer always seems to fly by quickly, but this summer seemed twice as fast as usual.  Deny as I will, my middle son leaves for college tomorrow morning and my oldest son leaves for the same college Sunday evening.  It will be so strange to have the two of them gone.  My daughter will also be starting college soon, but she’ll still live it home.  It’s so hard to believe that I’m down to just my youngest son homeschooling.
Even though I’m totally not ready to give up summer, here’s a quick and easy banner I created using an old book cover and dictionary pages to “celebrate” back to school time.
 I made an adhesive vinyl stencil with my Silhouette, using the Penmanship Print font found HERE,
and just painted over it.  You could use any word, but I like “spelling” because of the font.

I used natural twill tape o connect the pages and cover together.
Are you all ready for the kids to go back to school, or mourning summer’s end?
