Back to School

It's the second Saturday of August, so half the SFYTT Sisters have some sketch inspiration to share with you today, in case you're looking for a little jump-start to your own SFYTT challenge creation. To play along, link up your creation HERE.

Here's the August sketch again, sponsored by Verve Stamps:

And here are the designers posting today:

I went with a more creative interpretation today. Sounds so much better than non-compliant :D Actually, I think you'll see the sketch pretty clearly, even if I did bring the cloud borders forward one layer. This card began way differently in my head -- a almost all-white, very textured creation, but when I went in search of some colorful paper for the balloon paper piecing, I ran across this new school-themed My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad (School Daze Six By Six 2), and the whole "back to school" theme came together from there. The balloon is from Up, Up and Away by Verve. The "back to school" cloud and the vertical strip of crayons were both in the School Daze collection. The border clouds were done with the Clouds die by The Cat's Pajamas.

With my oldest starting middle school in a few weeks, my youngest starting kindergarten, and my middle in a multi-age, multiple teacher structure, the hard part will be deciding which teacher or child to give this to!

Happy weekend!
