Back to School...

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. ~John Dewey Happy Monday! Ok, I know that is not really possible, but I am trying to talk myself into it! :) I had an amazing weekend, my Sister was in town, I went to a Wedding Reception for some dear friends and I gave away Hugs at Art in the Park here in Boise. I didn't want it to end, but here I am, back at work....*sigh*

This week's Blogger's Challenge is a Fall Theme. I had plans to do something a little different, but didn't have a lot of time to craft this weekend, so I finished up a Back to School project I started a few weeks ago instead. School = Fall. right?? :)

I used Sassafras Apple Jack papers and my School Tots set from Woodware USA for this little School Work Journal. I love all the little accessory stamps that come in the Tots set, the apple is Adorable!!!

I figured this little book will help my son and me keep on track as the year progresses.

School Tots (Woodware USA,) Vintage Labels (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Apple Jack (Sassafras)
Ink: Copic markers, Memento Black
Misc: Ribbon, Stickles
