Back to school

Hey everyone!  I am a day early with my ScrappyDew design team project this week.  Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I will be on a park field watching hot air balloons get inflated and take off.  I have been doing this since the early 80's.  Don't get to the field each year, but always watch them from the house.  Now for this weeks project.

A few weeks back a new file was introduced.  It is called School 2014.  I have a friend that just loves to get mail.  This year he will be in 9th grade.  Gosh the 1st year of high school.  I had a feeling he would really like a surprise back to school card.

I used Recollections scraps for the boy and the actual card.  I also used Blackboard paper from Momenta for the inside.  I duplicated the school house and mirrored it.  Then welded both pieces together to create the card base.  On the inside I enlarged the notebook from the file to make it bigger so that I could have them be note cards.  So here is the final result...

The front.  I added the 'high' to school.

Here are the enlarged notebooks as cards.

I thought I would start my friend off with his first great report card!

I just love the way this special card turned out for my friend.  His mom told me, he loved it!  So my work is done (until Halloween that is).  

So I'm going to let you in on a strange little secret of mine.  If I get to do an activity that is really special to me, I plan ahead and get an outfit together so I will look SUPER!  I am a big believer in shopping thrift stores.  I find a great many items that have been donated by a retail store that are brand new.  Then I snap them up at pennies on the dollar.  So this is my outfit for tomorrow morning.  I am going to be stunning! (giggle giggle giggle)

Brand new Erika athletic outfit with capri's.  I paid $6.97

Last year, at the end of July til the Labor day weekend, I had a DOOZIE project going on. Here is the first post from last year.  This year is no different.  The first post of this MINI DOOZIE will be next weekend.  That is if I can keep from burning my fingers with the hot glue.  So for now, bright blessings, Jana.
