Here's Your Sign.. First Day!

Yesterday was the Mini Hippos first day of school.. I can't believe it.. I know own a 
and a 
and of course a 
Seriously.. this is just crazy.. my littlest hippo CANNOT be in KINDERGARTEN!  
Well anyway, I kept seeing all these super cute ideas for First day of school signs and decided that this year I just HAD to have some for my kids!  So after raiding my overly abundant stash.. I came up with these!
Pin It
Now even without a stash you could easily make them with a wood or even cardboard background, paper stencil and the cutter of your choice or even just a printed font.  
For these, I painted the bases and stencils.
  Next I used my Cricut to cut out my words.
Then I Mod Podged the heck out of it,
glued the stencil over the top and embellished them!
And of course, last I grabbed the kids and took FULL advantage of this wonderful photo op.  
And of course Upside down!
Best first day of school pictures.. EVER... or atleast in 
Pink Hippo Land!

I also got behind the camera so you wouldn't see me cry.. anyone have some tissues?  
My babies are growing up WAAAAYYY to fast! 
I am sharing with these fun parties!
