Where has the summer gone?

It's hard to believe my boys only have 3 weeks of their summer break left!  There has been lots of talk about back to school stuff in our supplies, back packs, new clothes and everything in between!  At least they still get excited about going back to school...I'm sure that won't last for long! 
In the spirit of back to school time, I've been working on a couple cards and projects for the boys' teachers this year.  Gotta start the year off with a fun teacher card and gift, right? 
With some layout inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary I had some fun this morning creating a bright and cheerful card.  Sorry if you are tired of seeing the Perfectly Preserved set, but there are just so many fun things you can create with it!  If you haven't got your bundled set yet, check out my On-line Store today!

  1. Thanks for playing along with our sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary. I also have 3 boys (mine are older). School here started on Aug. 1st so summer is over. And even in high school they are still glad when school starts - at least mine were.

  2. Ahh. I remember those back to school days! As much fun as summer vacation was, there was something special about going back to school and seeing old friends! Your card is an amazing way to commemorate that fun time! Thanks for joining us at Create With Connie and Mary!
