Back to School

Good Morning.  Can you believe it is the end of August already?  I actually shut my AC off for the first time in over a month and love it!!!  I personally can't wait for Fall. I love opening my windows and enjoying the nice weather.  

Along with the end of the summer comes sending the kids back to school.  This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations the theme is just that.  Back to School!   I used this Saturated Canary Stamp that I love and helps a great cause.  Krista is letting you take this and another adorable stamp for free and asking that, only if you can, donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  It is not mandatory but it is a great cause and you get some wonderful stamps.  To read all about it and get the free digi's visit Krista's Blog
