It’s back to school. Yes, I was one of those children who looked forward to going back to school. Summer vacation was nice but just long enough. I was always ready for the change.

I picked up some stamp sets this week end. The deciding factor ending up being the quotes that came with the set. The set by Technique Tuesday reminded me of the primers I learned to read from in first grade.

I used papers by Melissa Frances from the KItschy Kitchen collection. The decorative edges were done with Martha Stewart punches.
