Scrapping with Lisa's Designs Weather Bear DT Challenge

 http://    Welcome to Scrapping with Lisa's Designs Design Team displaying Lisa's Weather Bear files,, which is available in her store. Today, the complete Design Team will showcase both Rain Gear bear and Winter Clothes Bear in various ways to show the versatility of this file.

For my project, I got a little ambitious.  We are to show the versatility of the wonder files Lisa has in her shop, so, I decided to craft a “Weather Board” for the Pre-K class at my daughter’s school.  Teachers are so short on time, patience and cash these days, with so many being asked to buy their own classroom props, stay late, come in early….so, I made a learning tool for the class using our very own Weather Bear.  Our team’s assignment was Winter Bear.  I went about the construction a little differently, in that I made the bear standalone and assembled the clothes to be interchangeable.  I also enlarged the file, so that assembled, he is a little over 1 foot tall.  Once the bear was assembled, I laminated him.  I also laminated his clothes.  This IS Pre-K afterall! Lol.  I printed some word association cards for simple words associated with the winter and laminated those as well.  I permantly mounted the bear on a piece of 12 x 24 background, attached a green border and used seasonal chipboards to accent the corners.  Both the clothes and the word association cards are easily removable.  I was so pleased with how weather bear turned out, that although I have until August to finish this project, I decided to do the Rain Bear Clothes also, along with word association cards and rain themed chipboard.  I am hoping this little guy gets a lot of use in the Pre-K class!
We wouldn't want you to get lost along with way of the seasons. Here is the complete line-up with both teams combined.
