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.
