I'm the host this time and I chose Back to School as the theme because it's that time of year. I always loved back to school time as a kid as it meant new clothes, new school supplies (which I have a deep love for), and new beginnings. As I got older I still found a love for back to school time. It still means new clothes, new school/office supplies, and new beginnings for the incoming students. It is exciting to be a part of that. It is also exciting that every store you go to has an awesome selection of storage containers and devices to make any paper crafter proud. I'm telling you, this is our time of year.
Consider making a back to school card and joining us over at the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog. Don't fret if you don't have a school bus stamp. There are lots of other things that signify back to school time. There are desks and chairs, chalkboards, white boards, books, papers, pencils and a whole range of school supplies, rulers, apples, happy kids, happy parents, and don't forget all the lessons you've learned in school like Readin', Writin, and 'Rithmatic. All those are fair game.
The cards I made include a little girl all dressed up in her back to school best including new hair ribbons. She's so excited to go back to school and show all the kids that she rules! The second card is fairly traditional with a school bus and school house. I haven't decided if it is the kids on the bus saying "Woo Hoo!" or the parents they are leaving behind. My last card is to give encouragement to your favorite student.
