FREE Backgrounds!

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!
