Back to School...


It's that time of year when the summer holidays are coming to an end & it's time for the lil children to get ready to go "Back to School" & that is the theme for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge.  I used this fab image from DigiStamp Boutique called "Off to School Ava" & coloured her with ProMarkers, the papers were from my stash & I finished of with a chipboard A+ , a paperclip & computer generated sentiment. There is lots of inspiration from the fabulous DT & free sentiments too!

My challenges:
Totally Papercrafts - Back to School
PaperPlay - Back to School
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Back to School
Fairytale - Back to School
Frosted Designs - School Papers
Party Time Tuesdays - Back to School
DigiStamp Boutique - August Competition



Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend (it's an extra long one here in the UK) & manage to get at least some (if not lots of) crafting done :o)

Oh, I'm so glad I don't have to deal with school anymore........LOL With kids and grandkids being grown and no longer working in higher education I cringe at the thoughts of school starting and feel so sorry for the teachers. It's an adorable card Tracey and fits the theme perfectly. "Hugs" Carol
