Any fabulous plans for your weekend? The hubs and I are finally going to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday! I'm hoping for a day trip maybe :) We so seldom to get to see each other it will just be nice to be together, you know?
Any who, Simon Says is hosting a back to school challenge this week. I so wanted to play along but I so don't have many stamps that qualify :( I've been out of school for years now and I don't yet have any babies so this is one of those times that I was ill prepared. However, I will not be bested! I will be creative :)
Take that back to school! In searching for anything that would be suitable I remembered I had It's A Man's World from Sweet Stamp Shop. and It's A Man's World has a pencil stamp in it, yay!
I started by using MFT hexagon die and cutting from various pattern papers that read school to me. I used the grey from Amy tan's sketchbook and the red stripe/yellow polka dot from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes. I fit them all together and trimmed to form a panel.
I stamped the pencils and colored them with copics before adding stickles to them I printed the lined paper and the sentiment from my computer. I used an EK Success punch to create the notebook edge. That lovely twine is from Doodlebug.
All in all I feel like I kicked back to school's booty. Oh the little victories. Ha!
Thanks for popping in! Wishing you a lovely weekend :)
