Back to School

For all you Mom's out there....it's almost time for the kids to go back to school!  I was out this weekend running errands and everywhere I went people were buys school supplies.  Ah...what fun..

If you already haven't guessed, the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations theme this week is Back to School!  I found this cute image from  Elizabth O Dulemba.  I thought it was adorable and decided to use it for this challenge.  As you know, to participate in the Going Grey challenge you must use Basic Grey paper.  Since I couldn't find any back to school theme I decided on this paper from the new Oliver pack.  I love this pack of paper.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Little Red Wagon - Circles, Circles Circles - I have the circles behind my image and the buttons I used are circles.

S2G - Back to School - Yes it is that time of year when Summer is coming to an end and the kids go back to School.

Dutch Dare - Anything Goes - I love the easy ones!!!
Fairy Fun Friday - Frame a circle - I thought this was such a neat theme.  I just wish I had larger spellbinder circles but I did my best.
Stamping for the Weekend - Back to School - I guess all the Mom's out there that are picking themes have school on the mind!

Crafty Catz - Buttons and Bows - Since I didn't have any embellishments that were school related I decided to go with buttons.  I hope my tie on the side is considered a bow.  The colors in this card say Boy so I didn't want to put a real bow.
Sketch Saturday - Sketch - I liked this sketch but once again wish I had the larger Spellbinders dies

By the Cute & Girly - Animals - I love this little mouse.  I thought he looked so cute with all the books.

Penny's - Anything Goes - Thanks!  I agree with everything everyone has going on it is nice to see an easy challenge

Thank you for taking the time to visit and look at my card.  I appreciate it.  I also love all comments.  They put a smile on my face.
