Back to School Back Story....PP308





So while I was working on this card my partner in crime - Miss Emma - was busily working away on her side of my desk.  I just cut/stamp two of everything now and slide things over in her direction and she assembles as she sees fit.  I thought for sure she would be excited to color the little bear but nope that is not what caught her eye.

I slid this piece of paper over to her as I  dropped the outer frame of it into the trash.....



She looked into the wastebasket and gasped "No No Amma..........don't throw away the stage!"

She fished the scrap out of the basket and this is what she created......



She drew a picture of her mom and dad dancing and then pasted the "stage with hanging lights" over the top of it.  Yes the back of that lined paper is covered with bright polka dots! I love how she saw something so unexpected - I had never looked at it that way before! 



I love  my friend Claire's Back to School Color Challenge this week at the Paper Players!

Emma's gonna have a creative eye just like her Amma! I love the alphabet die Linda, perfect for your background. I honestly thought you bear was a pre-made die, the coloring is fantastic! You and your partner in crime work well together!

An awesome back to school creation, Linda. I like how you cut the background letters die from the same color as the card base. It's a great look. Of course that little bear with his apple is super cute! So is Emma's card. She will be stamping and die-cutting soon!

Linda this is too cute! Love the little bear, and your die cut alphabet background is amazing. Little Emma has a little artist in her, too!

Love the cute bear and the diecut background Linda; the tone on tone blue really works. Emma's card is truly inspired - amazing what little eyes see isn't it?

Fabulous Linda. I love that embossing folder and the little yellow(gold) stars are perfect. I remember just how chuffed I was the first day I got a gold star from my favorite teacher, Mrs Tucker.
