PWC271 - Back To School

The new challenge at Paper Pretties is PWC271 "Back To School".  Did you look this happy as Sophia on your first day back? I did,  I loved going to school.  In fact I was in my mid 20's, had finished college and was going back part time for some more classes when my best friend pointed out to me that if I could find a way to make it profitable she knew I would spend my entire life as a student.  She was right.  Even this week I was looking at some Adult Education Classes catalogue.  My husband also loves school so can anyone explain how our mixed genes produced a child that HATES school.  So as cute as this card is I could never give it to her.   

This card features "Off to School Sophia".  I fuzzy cut the image and popped it up on a scalloped oval die cut.  This die also punches holes inside the edge so I wove some baker's twine through it and hung a blackboard charm.  

Play along with us by making a
