Back to School...
Yup! Summer vacation is over here in, OH. It really went by so fast.
My daughter Layla is officially a 1st grader and I just can't believe it! She is growing up and becoming quite the little lady!
I want to share with you the card I made for her teacher for the first day of school. I was able to meet her teacher briefly and I think Layla is really going to like her!
Here's the card I made her:
I had so much fun creating this card. I used an old alphabet set and stamped it onto the lined dp. I then used a notebook hole punch to create the "notebook page" look. The apple was my favorite piece to make! I used my MS punch and punched out the apple with my red glitter paper. Then I punched the apple out in Early Espresso cardstock and Limeade cardtock and used those to create the leaf and stem. I love the three buttons at the top! Again, I had a lot of fun creating this one!
Here's my daughter Layla Paige right before getting on the bus.
She was beyond excited! I, on the other hand, was a wreck. But I will let you know, she saw no tears from me! I saved it all for when I got inside and closed the door! then I had to put myself back together for my youngest, Brooklyn Sophia, who cried quite a bit during the day. She would all of a sudden look up at me and say, "Mama, I want my Layla!" And then cry when I told her, "I'm sorry, Brookie! Layla's at school!"
I hope you like my "Back to School," card!
Till next time!
