Hello everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I’ve written. I’ve had to deal with a family emergency for the last month but everything is working out now.
If you hope over to the Digital Delights blog then you will see we have a bunch of new inspiration pieces for you. I have this great card for you.
With everyone getting back to school I thought that this would be a fun card to make to celebrate. My little guy is starting preschool next week and I am so excited.
I used the Chillin’ Out Bookyworm and the Best Ever Teacher sentiment.
I used the Back to School paper from Fancy Pants. All the little embellishments are from my stash. Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the other great projects the DT has for you this week.
Hello! I know it has been a dry spell on my blog. My mom had emergency brain surgery at the end of July and I went to BC to help with things for the first couple of weeks while she started her recovery. She is one lucky lady, lucky to be alive and she is starting the long road to recovery. She has very little damage from the aneurysm or the surgery so that is really great!
I have been trying to play catch up this week as I have a bunch of projects that I will be showing you over the next couple of weeks, although I leave to go on my holidays August 19-29th. Camping! Cannot wait! Thank goodness for autoposting!
On to this weeks Use it Tuesday challenge…..ALL ABOUT SCHOOL! The start of school is fast approaching which of course signals that summer will soon be over. My little guy Riley starts preschool this year so I am excited and apprehensive at the same time. Its a big thing right???
I have a fun little card for you today.
Everything on this card is from my stash this week, nothing is new. The paper pack is from Fancy Pants and is called Off to School. I found a big shoebox full of ephemera which is where that flash card came from so I am not sure who makes it. The stars were cut out using an Epiphany Crafts punch that I won in a prize pack last year I think! I believe I’ve only ever used it once before and it’s been awhile! It is a great tool and I think I need to use it more often! I also won a circle one too which I have not used yet. The ribbon, twine and notebook punch are all from my stash. I’ve not used them in awhile either. I don’t think I’ve ever used that ribbon! I don’t even know where it came from..LOL
I hope you enjoyed my card and make sure you stop by the Use it Tuesday blog to see the other great projects the DT has for you this week and to enter the challenge!

Okay..I don’t know how I feel about this layout yet. I don’t LOVE it but who knows. I guess you have to post the good and the bad right..otherwise how can you tell if you’ve grown and progressed. Anyway..the challenge this week was the Power of 3. 3 photos, 3 different embellishments, 3 diff patterened paper, 3 ribbons. The ribbon challenge was to weave ribbon into your layout.
I found it hard to even find 3 pics that I liked. I don’t even know where I dug these ones up, I only know that they are old! I don’t have a lot of pics of me. I really should change that at some point.
PP: Fancy Pants, Chatterbox
