Welcome to The Stamping Boutique's Back to School Blog Hop - If you've popped over from Ashley's Blog , you're on the right track. If you need to start at the beginning, please visit Aletha's Blog, AJ's Designs .

These cards were created using the new digital images from Tracey Malnofski, artist extraordinaire of The Stamping Boutique from her Back to School line.

This one on the right was colored with Copics. The pencil was cut out & popped up on dimensionals. I added some Glossy Accents to the apple then finished off with a polka dot ribbon. The DP is from ScrapGirls.com which I added some arithmetic free-hand.


This card was also colored with Copics. I added the handwritten sentiment, some clear glitter gel for the sparkles and matted on some red/orange/kraft layers. Only 3 weeks left before school starts up again here in the midwest - where DID the summer go ???
