Wizard of Oz Decorating 101, Giveaways, and a Freebie-- Oh My!!!

Guess what I did today...Stayed in my PJ's ALL. DAY! Why you may ask... Well...

1. It's Summer!!
2. I Can!
3. I have OCD-- BIG TIME!! Ask Brian... He'll complain  tell you!!!
4. (This is tied into #3)-- I was working on my decorating packet for my Wizard of Oz room and couldn't stop!!! 

Now, I don't know about you but I am the kind of person that once I start something that is really important to me I have to finish it through to the end. Come hell or high water, I am finishing it! Well, I did finish it. Most of it. Part 1 of it. The Bulk of it. I have a few ideas I want to finish but after working on it all day, I think I am done, plus I need a mental break now! 

Check it out!!

I am going to upload it to TPT tonight! But before I do... I'd like to offer it to you as a giveaway! I've seen some new pinners to my "Wizard of Oz" classroom decor board and if this is something that you are interested in, then this is the perfect starter decorating pack for you!!

There are 3 ways to enter! Click on the Rafflecopter below to enter!The Giveaway Ends Tuesday, July 16th!

This giveaway is also a way for me to celebrate my over 100 Fun, Fabulous Followers! I decided to do something simple and easy! So, I am giving away a $15 TPT gift certificate along with my classroom decor packet! I think simple is better!
