Back To School

So today, I was on a total scraplifting mood for a back to school card. All my children are in college and one has already graduated college...yikes, Im gettting old! While I was browsing on pinterest a few days back I seen this AMAZING card made by Carrie Gaskin...I loved it so much I just had to lift it! I think it totally screams "Back to School" and even though I don't have a person to give it to I wanted to play with some fun colors... :) You can see Carrie's original card here. Thanks Carrie! 


I did change the numbers to letters and added more buttons. The letters are made with my cricut using "schoolbook plantin". I also made the schoolbook paper with white cardstock and a black marker with tiny punch holes. 


The pencil made from a popsicle stick was also a scraplift idea from Tracy F. at sb.com. 
Pure GENIUS! 
I colored the pencil with smooches and a black copic marker. 


Hope you are inspired as much as I was today...have a great day! 
Hugs!
