You Rule!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. As promised, I have a preview of the new à la modes! Today's set is You Rule. Since I'm a teacher, I literally squealed when I saw it! :)


The paper is from the October Afternoon Schoolhouse 8x8 pack, and the layout is Jen's March Sketch for You to Try. Coloring was done with Copics. I used the Die-namics Notebook Edge die, and I embellished with some tape measure twill, button, and Honeydew Twine.


I finished the inside with more of the school-themed paper and a sentiment from the set. I'm sure this will be going to one of my girls' teachers, so I left some room for a personal note! :)

Stop by Kim's Blog to see the lineup of designers who have previews of this sweet new set! It will be available tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 10:00 pm. I'll have a sample with the other à la modes set tomorrow! I hope to see you then!

Thanks for the visit -- have a great day!
Christina
