Back To School

ONE WEEK LEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's been a fun summer here at the Farrell house. We've been buried under renovations for a good part of it, but now as they are winding down, the omnious cloud of 'back to school' is on the horizon. No seriously, I absolutely love my job and always have mixed feelings in September. I love going back and connecting again with my friends on staff, and seeing last year's class and hearing about their summers. BUT, going to work means less time to stamp. Oh yeah, and less time with my kids :) Anywyay I came across this back to school image from Sassy Studio Designs so I decided to colour her with blonde hair and blue eyes like me. But there is no way I would ever look so put together and dressed up for work with 7 year olds. And if you're wondering why the black board is white - well in my classroom I have a Whiteboard.

This card is for 5 challenges - yes - FIVE. I'll never get that organized again.
1. Color Throwdown - I LOVE this weeks combo.
2. Techno Stamper - Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge
3. Just Add Ink - add fabric - I used 2 ribbons
4. Little Red Wagon - Back to School
5. Sassy Studio Designs - Back to School
The FUN Stuff:
1. Paper - Whisper White, Sweet Pea DSP
2. Image - from Sassy Studio Designs
3. Ink - So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Rose Red Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Bashful Blue
4. Accessories - Blender Pens, So Saffron Brads, Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon
