This weeks challenge from Claire at The Paper Players is:
Back to school already? How did that happen?
I used to love this time of year with all the new clothes, shoes, backpacks...it was always so much fun getting ready for school! Now my kids are older and I'm a retired educator...no more back to school for me. But every year I do put together some school supplies for our church preschool and also for my hubby...his office has a school drive. That's always fun! I usually am right in the mix of all the parents and kids at Walmart throwing things into my cart!
So I don't have many dies or stamps for this theme..but I did find some awesome paper and an old dollar stamp from Michael's to use for my card. I used an apple from Cheery Lynn...forgot I had it...but it worked perfectly for this challenge.
I've been noticing lots of plates for card photo's on Pinterest and card blogs lately so I've been trying some out. I've been stuck on using my wood slice cutting board and a doily..so it's fun to change it up. My daughter gave me a set of multi colored plates for the lake and I really like them! She will prolly laugh when she hears we aren't actually eating on them! LOL! I love the distressed edges.
Here's the blue plate:
