Using the Chalkboard

This week's Ways To Use It challenge follows this month's theme:  Back To School.  Teresa is our hostess this month and her challenge is about the chalkboard technique.  I had planned on making a card, but just wasn't feeling it.  I wanted to make something for my sweet little girl after her tough day at Kindergarten.  You see, she is exhausted from the start of school and hasn't been getting enough sleep as she is super excited.  It all culminated in a major crying meltdown in the hallway after school.  She just sobbed and clung to me as I tried to escort her to her after school program.  She is attending school where I work.  I still had half of a school day to go.  We eventually got her tears dried and got her to her after school program. 
So I decided that I would make her a little something.  This is her backpack tag before I laminated it.  I was afraid the chalk wouldn't show as well after I laminated it.  I stamped her initials on the back and used some sparkling Spica pens on the hearts on the back. 

Details - Stamps: Punch Potpourri; Paper: Green Galore, Basic Black; Ink:  White Craft ink: Accessories: Stampin' pastels, white gel pen, jumbo eyelets, red grosgrain ribbon.
