Educational Tuesday :)

As most of you know, my youngest son is on the low functioning end of the Austism Spectrum and my oldest has Aspergers. One of the main reasons (beyond my LOVE of scrapbooking) that I finally decided to invest in a Cricut a few years back was because I wanted to make flashcards and educational stuff for my boys. Well, for Christmas my dad bought me a laminating machine so today I FINALLY got to work on some flashcards! =) I kept it simple as my oldest is learning how to read so I wanted to focus on letters so I cut the pink background at 3 1/2x 2 1/2 with the letters being cut out at 2" using Mickey Font. I then ran them through my laminating machine (3M brand) and used my WRMK Crop a Dile to punch holes to put my ring through. THATS IT! I'm so excited because tomorrow i'm gonna start working on picture cards for my youngest (Brad) and put some magnets on the back and place them on the fridge! I'll post those up next Tuesday. :)

**And in case your wondering why they are PINK when my son obviously doesn't care for that color is because these will also be for his little sister once he "graduates" from them. Also, the laminating isn't perfect, but for a $30 machine, i'm not complaining :)**
