Blogger's Challenge #165: Back to School

As you know, I am a first and second grade teacher and I am deep into getting ready for this school year!  When I saw this stamp set in the Summer Mini, I knew it was yet another "must-have!"  Pairing it with the Two Tags Bigz die, made the perfect combination for a bookmark!  I added my name with the Rough Type alphabet.

I needed a place to tuck my bookmark so I made a little pocket card.

The Spiral punch is a perfect accessory for a back to school card, creating the "torn-out paper" look.  Brads and Clips accessories also add a "school" feel.

Please check out what the other players have done with this challenge and thanks for looking!

I love children but I don't think I have the patience God gave a gnat so my hat is off to you! To be a teacher is one of the best professions in the world and I still remember my most favorite teachers fondly. They absolutely did change how I looked at myself and the possibilities. Great card -- good luck!
