Back To School

Hey All! Ami here to share my latest card with you. My daughter is still too young for school, but that doesn't mean I don't suffer from back to school fever. As a child growing up, I looked forward to going back to class and every since graduating I still get that twinge to buy scribblers, crayons and lined paper.

This year, one of my near and dear friends is heading back to class - this time as a teacher. To help welcome her to her new role, I've created this card for her.

When I am creating cards (because I'm still a newbie), I often use templates. I picked up this template from Scrappycath Designs in a challenge at Scrapmatters. Cathy has created a great psd file that's fabulous for helping with placement and sizing of elements. The kit I've used is also a digital item; it's a kit called School Days by WM[squared] Designs. I pefer to use digital items as I know I will never run out of my favorite paper.
I just know my fave teacher will appreciate opening this card on the first day of school.
To all teachers out there- Thanks for everything you teach us.
Remember to stop by the Canadian Paper Trail to pick up some more back to school and end of summer ideas for all your scrappy needs.
