School's still out here in Yorkshire and the children won't return until early September but I know there are many places where the school year is about to start and the long summer holiday is going to be over. Thankfully I no longer have to worry about school uniform and packed lunches, although the downside is that Daughter will return to university at the beginning of September and the house will seem so empty and quiet again for a while.
Obviously, this time of year means lots of Back to School challenges and this card will be entered in:
Papercutz Challenge - 'Back to School'
Paper Playtime Challenge - 'School Days'
Stampin' For the Weekend - 'Back to School'
Our Creative Corner - 'Back to School'
Stampin' Royalty - 'School Days'
'Apple Girl'; and the little pile of books is from Elizabeth O Dulemba - 'Back to School Books'
Papers: October Afternoon
This little one is sooo cute! And I love her apple for teacher! That's what reminded me I had this cute little pile of books from Elizabeth O Dulemba, which I've used as an embellishment.
There's an added extra with this card though. There is a pocket flap on the inside, which holds a useful bookmark - take a look below.
I coloured this little sweetie with my Copics and added a glow of soft yellow with my Primacolors. The little 'extra credit' tags were cut from one of the sheets in my October Afternoon 'Report Card' paper pad, which is where the wonderful script paper came from too. The check is also October Afternoon, from their 'Farm Fresh' collection. I must replace all my October Afternoon paper pads - they're brilliant and I can't possibly live without them!
"Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play.
I'm in a brand new grade this year.
What a happy day!"
The inside of the flap has a pocket, which holds a useful bookmark:
