Back to School Photo Prop

Today I wanted to share with you the photo prop I created for my kids' back to school pictures.  I used the Chalkboard from SVG Attic's Back 2 School kit.  It is actually a card, and a very pretty one at that.  But I knew it would be perfect for what I had in mind!
Instead of using the included sentiment for the chalkboard, I used a free printable from Jones Creek Creations and just sized it to fit the inside of the chalkboard.  I embossed the outside of the chalkboard with a woodgrain embossing folder and distressed it with brown chalk ink.  To embellish, I used some Trendy Twine along the bottom and school themed buttons.
The best part is that I adhered the printable with repositionable adhesive, so I could use the same prop for my Pre-Schooler too!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
