Back to School

My grand niece starts first grade. Such a milestone in a child's life. I remember my first grade experience. My brother was in 6th grade when I started elementary school. Our school did not have a cafeteria so we ate lunch in the classroom. The first graders had lunch in the 6th graders room for some reason. I cried and cried till I got to eat my lunch at my brothers desk. 

I picked up this stamp from MyFavoriteThings during a recent trip to Scraptasia. I paper pieced the little girl's skirt and sweater  as well as the chalk board. the white pigment ink on the black card stock really looks like a chalk board.

I hope you all are enjoying the most beautiful weekend we have had in months. Spend time outside!

Come back tomorrow for a special announcement!
