Hey guys! I've been playing around with some backgrounds and thought I'd share them with you! You can snag them for free from my TpT store. When I use them, I'm usually working in Word. I insert the picture and then change the "position" so I can stretch/move it. Once in place, I insert a "shape" on top of the background and then add text/clip art. And you're done!
