Back to School!

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Today's ATS Challenge is "Back to School." There are so many possibilities for this one -- cards, teacher treats, scrapbook pages...

I decided to make a backpack tag for Caroline. She goes back to school (preschool) today -- the last of my four kids to start school! This is a pretty simple design. I stamped the image and sentiment from Donald and Daphne Go to School on white cardstock. I paper pieced Daphne's shirt with BasicGrey Boxer paper and colored the rest with Copics. The backpack was stamped, colored, cut out, and mounted on rolled up glue dots. I used Simple Alphabet by Papertrey Ink to put Caroline's initials on the backpack. I matted the image panel on black cardstock and tied ribbons to the top. That's it!

Donald and Daphne Go to School is one of the retiring C.C. Designs sets. We've had lots of fun working with it, but believe me -- Christine has some great stuff coming!! Previews of the September releases start Friday!! :)

Would you like to participate in the challenge? Use keyword ATSDTC16 when uploading to the ATS Gallery or other public gallery. All the Wednesday Challenges are posted HERE -- play along at any time!

Thanks so much for the visit today -- I'm always happy when you stop by! Have a fantastic day! :)
