Simply Create Challenge 51 - Back To School

Welcome to the Simply Create challenge! We took an extra week as time off for good behaviour so we are a week later than anticipated! And our theme this fortnight is

Back To School

So however you interpret this, you can enter! For more details please pop over to the challenge blog.

My main image is one drawn especially for me by Claire from Jellypark - how lucky am I?! He's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added a computer generated sentiment to the board he is holding as its going to be sent to a friends little boy who will be starting school next week!

The background is from Tiddly Inks which comes as part of a bundle. The main image has been added with foam pads and all the other bits n bobs are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Pixie Dust Studio: School is Cool!
