CSD Back to School

If anyone would like to follow my blog you can either click on the 2 red squares next to the 'join' button and then click follow or, copy the link and paste it into your reading list.  For some reason my button has never worked :(

Happy Tuesday folks :)

I have a project to share from Crafty Sentiments Designs today.  The challenge is 'Back to School'.  Head over to the blog to enter your makes and get some inspiration from the very talented DT Ladies.

The prize for the lucky winner is............

When I saw that this was the new challenge the perfect stamp for me was 'Skip Skip' maybe because all three of my children were at primary school when I made it and my Daughters often skip to school holding hands.

With my daughters in mind, I've used the image to make a lunch bag.  Just the thing that everyone needs for a busy day at school.

A little close up.........

And a side view..........

I coloured the image using spectrum noirs, and added my own sentiment.  I cut it out using an xcut circle die and layered it with card and papers from my stash onto the bag.  I've used dies from Marrianne and Tattered Lace amongst the flowers and finished everything off with a few gems
