Hi Ho Hi Ho, It's back 2 School they go....

It's almost that time again, Back to School Time. My boys are already mourning the end of summer, especially my ingoing Freshman. When school starts he will have to be out of the house for a 6:15 early morning religion class....Oh yeah, drat...that means I have to get up at 5AM too....

Meljen's Designs is sponsoring a fun 'Back 2 School' Challenge and has a fun new release with some great School Daze images. I used both Checkered Apple Frame and Desktop Mouse for this card that I will send to my lil sister who teaches younger elementary age children in Escondido California. 

I cut out and layered Desktop mouse and used 3-D tape to pop him up printed a second image to pop- up the top piece of paper, same with the stars and the apple. The paper-clip is real. Glossy accents on the stars, apple (of course), stamp, mouse tail and as a bit on the pencil top. White Gel-Pen for the chalk on the chalk board. Tip: For nice crisp edges when I 'fussy cut' an image I run a matching sharpie marker around the newly trimmed edges, works with Digi Paper too after cutting the size you need- no more white edges to distract from your project.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the last few weeks of summer....In truth I enjoy having the guys home for summer, they keep the days eventful to say the least. Guess I am in mourning too for the end of summer, ....Bummer... Hope these images bring a smile.


  1. Robbie, this is so adorable. I love how you've combined the two images. 5 am ? Girl, that's insane!

  2. Cute! I love the chalkboard.

  3. How clever I love that little mouse, good tip for the marker pen for the edges, I'll try and remember that :)
