Happy First Day of School

Happy Monday!

I found a little crafty time with a break from the books to get another card ready for the beginning of school. My little man will have a few cards to give to his teachers.  Hard to believe they will be back in one week. I know many have already started back. I feel like I didn't get much of a summer break and most importantly, I missed being able to do a lot with the short stack this summer.
 I used stamps and dies from My Creative Time. I took a length of Cranberry Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the prepped banner piece and tied in a double bow.  All papers were odds and ends from previous makes, but I can assure you I will have these papers for years to come...I bought this school stack a couple of years ago, and I feel like I have not made a dent in my pile. As my son is getting older, I doubt I will be making many school projects past this year. {Enter very sad face}
Inspiration was found with this weeks Retro Sketches layout.
I am also sharing at Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes.
I hope you have a fabulous week!

Layers of back to school cuteness Tammy!! Your son has some lucky teachers!! The summer does go quickly. I don't think they should start up until after Labor Day and be done right after Memorial Day. That's the way it was when we were kids!!
