Off To School With Crafty Secrets

It's that time of year when all the kiddos are heading back to school.
I know some of my grandchildren are already back in Indiana,
but here in our town in Michigan, it starts Sept 2nd...
I made this cute little card and I think I will send it to 3 of them to

wish them well on their school year.

For my Crafty Secrets project
I started with some bright SU card stock that reminds me of crayola crayons
Brilliant Blue and YoYo Yellow...bet you haven't heard those colors in a while...lol!

I embossed the yellow card stock with a Paper Studio notebook paper folder
then I grabbed my "Crafty Secrets CD's and went "hunting"....
I ended up with "TYPOGRAPHY" CD #3.....
Oh my goodness, it was loaded with images to use....
I chose the cute little blackboard and printed it wallet size....
I popped up the cutest little "off to school" image on that 
Did you know that these stickers (and more) are all on clearance for 99 cents?
They are high quality and so cute to work with!!

I made a banner for the top using dies from Papertrey Ink, adding apples to the banners

To finish I added my "signature" gingham bow and brad!!

Don't forget that Crafty Secrets has a "Summer Sale" going on...
wow...you get a boatload of goodies for a very small price.....
I know someone that just received theirs and was thrilled with it!!!

I will be back on Sept 1st with a new Crafty Secrets Halloween project for
our Sept linky party...you won't want to miss it, so mark your calendars!!
Here is a link that will take you to the Crafty Secrets Blog...have fun!!

Entering in the following challenges:
Craftin Desert Diva's .... Back To School
Melonheadz Friends .... Back To School
My Craft Spot .... Back To School

School starts here after Labor Day, and fall soon follows. I'm sad to see summer go, but at the same time I won't mind slowing down a bit. Anyway... I LOVE this vintage stuff! The banner is too cute with the apples, and love the chalkboard and the kids and the gingham bow with fabulous polka dot brad. All those primary colors are perfect for the back to school theme. Darling and fun!
