Back 2 Books "I'm a Big Kid Now" - Color Dare #358

This is my ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #358 "Inspiration Photo". Oh my, what a fun time this was, but very time consuming because I used a lot of Cricut cuts which were pretty small (many were only 1" and for some there were many pieces and colors for one item). Wish I had done individual photos of each piece to show the detail but below are photos from the Cricut Design Space and approximate size of them.

This was my project for our last day of our Buffalo Crop back East and even though some thought I was crazy a lot of input and conversation was shared by all. Gave to one of the girls at the crop because she has a Big "Little Grand" Kid going back to School this Fall.  

Also submitted to the following Challenges: Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine these challenges too.
