Happy Wednesday !!
Happy First Day of School to all the peeps in our neighborhood!

Yikes, can you believe I have a Freshman in High School
although it is my second rodeo, it still is hard to see him
growing up way too fast !! What happen to my little 
red-head, freckle face sweet little cowboy???

Well it's Time for a new challenge over on the 
THE STAMPING CHEF !!

All  our challenges are "ANYTHING GOES"  so what a great opportunity to join us for a chance to win some of those fabulous images on your wish list!!

This week I played with beautiful  new image, you can find in the TSC store 

Suzette 


I really wanted to showcase this gorgeous image, so went with a 
pretty clean and simple design, but then just couldn't help myself and had to 
spice it up a bit, using a beautiful leaf flourish and adding mini Prima flowers 
with pearl centers. 
Suzette was colored with Copics and I used a floral embossing folder 
on my background paper

Back to School with Bookaholic Kaite

Hey there,

Hard to believe summer is over and it's time for all the young ones to go back to school here
Seems like it was a very short summer break for them!!

Today I am sharing a project that would make a perfect little gift for that special teacher, student and even those gals who work in the cafeteria!!



Using the adorable Bookaholic Kaite from artbymiran, I actually created this project in less then a couple of hours, and had fun using up some little bits and pieces I found while moving my craft room up stairs.

I used some sweet paper by Calico Studio "Year Book", mini 2015 calendar template I found over on Splitcoaststampers by Cat. Flowers are Recollection, Martha Steward leaf punch 

I will enter my desk calendar in the following challenges

All Crafts Challenge - anything but a card 
Craft-Dee BowZ Monthly - anything goes with handmadebow
Crafting from the Heart - anything goes 
Come and Get it - Back to School 



Thanks for visiting!! {Crafty Hugs} Jackie

Where did this summer go? School starts in eleven days 
here and hopefully this weekend I can convince Hunter we 
really have to go school shopping!! Yeah like that is going to happen...
Grandma will go by myself and hope what I pick out, he likes so I don't have to
go and do exchanges!! Shouldn't be too hard as he really just needs the basic 
under garments and tee- shirts to start off the year.
