Back To School

....well, not for me.  After 33 years teaching in the high school setting, I just substitute now and then for a little extra fun/mad money. Funny how I don't miss the paperwork, yet now that I'm retired, I surround myself with paper....ok...but it's PRETTY PAPER...haha

The image is from Lacy Sunshine called Chrissy Crystal Whisk Fairy .  I got it free for participating last month.  Their challenge theme this month at Lacy Sunshine is "Back to School".

I used my new Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Die Set and my new Lil Inker Stitched Flag.  It took me a long time to win the fairy charms on Ebay at the price I wanted to pay.  They seemed to be very popular.

(Humm...she is not that pink...bad lighting..sorry)
