Back to Skool !!

I know I'm not the only one that has been struggling with
this week's 'Back to School' challenge, over at
Then I remembered that this set of stamps contained
a little backpack that was just perfect.
If you're struggling too, you could always take
Lorraine's advice and make a bookmark, or a covered notebook.
Check out the DT work for some great ideas.

What is it about me and buttons??
I see them on other people's cards
and they always look fab.
They just don't seem to look right when I use them.
I tried these all ways - with ribbon on top, underneath,
with brown thread, with string...
but in the end I got so frustrated I just stuck them on
without anything!

Recipe -
Stamp, from the Woodware Playtime set,
coloured with whispers pens.
Paper - My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus.
Letters cut with Sizzix die.
I made the 'Back to Skool' sentiment on my comp.
