Post 1 of 2= Fussy & Fancy DT card- Back to school

So many wonderful interpretations of Mindy's sketch for the past 2 weeks at the Fussy & Fancy Challenge Blog, I think you all hooked me on circle cards for sure.
Now for this weeks challenge, since school IS just around the corner, and some students have ALREADY started back--our theme is:


And our spnosor is the wonderful Stitchy from Stitchy Stamps who has given us some fun images to use!

I am using the image "Whatever"........primarily cuz this is what my daughter says all the time "Whateva MOM!! " lol..........god love her.
I colored her with my watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps & instead of a card, I opted to make a little book for my daughter to take to school.
I had a bunch of school paper from a paper pack I bought AGES ago, so thought it would make the perfect papers for a little notebook. I also added school theme stickers to my project. AGAIN, stickers I've had for a coon's age!!! Her initials are HS, thus the metal letters on the front of the book. A buncha eyelets & ribbon reminants made the perfect binding.

Back of the book.

It's already in her back pack & school does not start until Sept 8th (here in Pine Falls, Manitoba, Canada).

Come check out the other DT's fabulous creations at Fussy & Fancy for the next couple weeks. You won't be disappointed.
