Happy Times

I have very happy memories of my time at school ... Don't be rude ... I can remember that far back. The excitement of being chosen as the milk monitor, my projects proudly displayed on the classroom wall and even inside games during a rainy lunch time. All happy times. Perhaps not so much for the teachers who I now appreciate so much more - they didn't get a break from us on those rainy days. 
See! my memory is perfect. A quick post today 'cause I am off to take the kids to school ..."Has anyone seen my keys and where's my bag!"
I have used a La La Land image called Backpack Marci and papers from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad 'Shaken Not Stirred Collection' and the following Copic markers:

  2. Really fun card with super good coloring... I like the layout and colors too!

  3. I liked school too.....well the social part of school anyways. I was never chosen as a milk monitor though as we didn't have those at our school. I did almost get picked as AV monitor one year, so that's kinda the same. :-)

    Wonderful card! I love the red and black together.

  17. This is flipping adorable! Love the little letter accents and that center circle, I thought you stitched the edge of it and even if you didn't it looks great! I know what you mean about getting older, I have to read and reread stuff anymore to make it sink it, sigh. Oh well, could be worse!
