Back 2 School

This is a sad reality in my world, my son starts back to school on August 9th. On one hand, I am sad to see his summer vacation end.....on the other, well, I am tired of hearing, "I'm bored!" But, at least this year, he starts school after his birthday!

I used more of my beloved Making Memories paper, I had to cut into my last sheet of the numbered and striped varieties. I sure wish I could find more, but I don't even know the name of it.

I pulled out a go to set, Apples to Apples, for this one. The sentiment was stamped twice, once in brown, then again in red. I trimmed out the number in red and adhered it to the brown one. The apple was colored with copics, then I added some Glossy Accents. I trimmed it out and then adhered it with Jody boosters. Lastly, I added a small baby blue button with some red/ white twine.

Your son must get out of school a lot earlier than mine. We go back September 7th here, so I'm not even close to ready for one of these back to school cards, haha. Love the little button you added to your apple. :)
