BBTB2 Back to School Challenge- Pull out book

Today both FCCB and BBTB2  have Back to School as their challenge themes. 
My first post for the day will be the FCCB Back to School Cricut Crawl 
and the second will be the BBTB2 challenge.  
Remember you have one week to link your projects up for both of these challenges.  

Reminder- Blog Candy 
Starting August 18th through August 31th I am going to draw one lucky winner by who leaves a comment and is a follower of my blog for a $10  Gift Card to Michaels.  
I will also draw one lucky new follower for a goody bag.  I now have 603 followers which is amazing to me. 
So thank you all!

It's Back to School for most of the country this time of year.  So today at BBTB2 my wonderful friend and Design Team sister Brenda asked us to design a "Back to School Project.  
It will be so fun seeing what all the Design Team member have created.  
For my project I designed a mini book for my granddaughter Kenzie who started preschool this past week.  She is going to preschool two days a week and was one tired puppy after her first day of school.  

The book base came from Creative Imaginations.  
This is the cover.  
Paper is DCWV School stack from Michaels
Kenzie's name is cut from Nate's ABC

This is the book open with Preschool cut from Nate's ABC and backed with 1 inch circles. 
When you pull the book it opens like this and spells out Preschool
Some pages have pockets and tags 
Some have little mini books 
Photo mats 

I used Locker Talk, Recess, and Nate's ABc
Ribbon from Stash
Remember you have one week to join us for the Back to School Challenge.  We would love to see your creations and have you link up with BBTB2.
