Back to School?

Hello again folks!

How's your weekend going? 

It's that time of year when school shoes have to be polished, uniforms ironed and pencil cases refilled - or at least in the Western hemisphere.  So there seems to be a few 'back to school' themed challenges out there in blogland - the one over at The Card Concept has an inspiration pic which I combined with the latest sketch from Mojo Monday:

I have to admit, I'm not feeling the love for this clean and layered card.  I think I may be suffering from the shock of having to make an impromptu speech in front of about 50 parents this morning on behalf of my son's soccer team.  For someone who loathes public speaking and had no warning whatsoever and therefore no preparation, it was not a pleasant experience!

Hope you get a bit of time for crafty stuff this weekend!

  1. Oohhhh...
    no help with talking in front of people here...sorry! :(
    But I bite at public speaking and don't envy you!
    Hope it went well!
    And I love this back to school cutie...
    anything chalkboard gets my attention! :)

  2. Claire, this is just amazing...I love all your sweet little details and your chalkboard sentiment is just perfect! Thank you so much for playing along with us at The Card Concept.

  3. Claire, what's not to love? Love the beautifully layered apple, the 'smudged' chalkboard and the inverted clip.
    Sorry about the impromptu speech. I feel your pain!

  4. Eeek! on public speaking! But i think this card turned out great! love the chalkboard technique!

  5. So cool! I love the chalkboard technique you've used on your card and the papers you've combine are just fabulous! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!
