Back to school.

((Friendly Reminders-
 Stamping Vacation Blog Hop on Sept 25th & 26th-TONS o' prizes!!!
My Blog Candy until Sept 26th ))

My first inspiration for this creation is the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog that is asking for the Bon Voyage Tildas to be used in conjunction with either a homemade backpack or suitcase.
Directions for both of these can be found at the challenge blog.
Go check it out if you wanna try something new!
This is 'Tilda with a bundle' & I am envisioning her going off to college.
Thus I accompanied the card with a suitcase, since she is already carrying a bundle over her shoulder.....there's no way she's getting a backpack on too! haha

Today is actually the first day back to school for my daughter, so............hmmm.........kinda the same thing.

My next inspiration for my card is the cracked glass technique going on over at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. The DT cards made jaw dropping gorgeous inspiration, so I just HAD to dive right in!

My final inspiration for my card are the pin & pearl challenges going on right now at Die Cut Dreams and Wild Orchid (links below). I had my image all colored up when  I 'phoned a friend' & asked her to pull together some sort of 'fancy-shmancy-pin-thingy ma-jigs' for me! She came thru & these are the result! Thanks Lori !
Pearls are from Dollarama! Flowers are Wild Orchid!

Sentiment is from Sentimental Sundays (link below) where every Sunday they have a new challenge theme AND  free sentiments available for download ! Mwah....................TY!

I am quite proud of my little suitcase. I added a little luggage tag should it get separated from Tilda along the way. As well, I added some wheels to my suitcase........I mean, who has the strength to carry 18 pairs of shoes 20 outfits & 2 school books to college!!! LOL
