♥ Back to School ♥

I can't believe school starts in 2 weeks already! I'm sad! :( I love when both of my kids are with me all day! I'm selfish! But it is a good thing for Antonio. I think he gets bored after awhile. It's good for him to have a routine and discipline (homework). I still can't believe he is starting 2nd grade! Yikes! Next year when my little one goes to Pre-School, I will really be sad! I'll be alone in a huge house all by myself for a few hours! What will I do?? Make a few cards!!?? Maybe, just a few! ;)

Well, this week we have the perfect challenge for this time of year at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! "Back to School"!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Maya Road! One of my fave companies!! I used a cute Kraft Library card with/ Envelope. I inked it slightly with some white ink and added a white paper clip to it. The "no. 1 Teacher" is from the Just My Type Clear Stamp Set. The envelopes are cute because you could also tuck a gift card in there for teacher too!

I finished it off with a cute Mini Ruler also by Maya Road, the chipboard apple is also from an old Maya Road chipboard set, the papers are by Farmhouse Paper Company, FYI Paper Pad.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Well, I'm not as itchy as I was before from this Poison Ivy, but it's still there! the doctor said 2-3 weeks!! ughh! NOT fun!!

Enjoy your day!!

This is really adorable and great for back to school. The kids around here have been back in school for 3 weeks now and the university starts on Monday so school is already in full swing around here. Thanks for the inspiration!
