Blogger's Challenge #225: Back to School

It has to happen sometime...summer vacation has to end!  I just didn't want it to happen!  But, I'm looking forward to a terrific group of first and second graders so I guess I'll survive!

Our challenge was to "celebrate" the beginning of a new school year!  I needed a birthday card for an adorable little guy who will be my great-nephew as soon as my nephew marries his mom on 9-10-11!!!



I used a set from the Summer Mini called Recess...best part of the day!  (Usually my only prep time!)  I also snuck in a set from the "big" catty called Pennant Parade...isn't it terrific?  The punch matches the set perfectly!  Love all of the new punches/stamp sets that Stampin Up has designed!

Check out the other players below and join in!!!
