Aloha Friday #79 - School's In!

Good morning! Aloha Friday is in full swing over at Kitty Bee Designs! Our current challenge is #79: School's In, and this is week #2. Sorry for the late post, I know it's Tuesday but we were gone on a long Labor Day weekend getaway so I'm finally getting caught up. So it's your turn now, get our your stamps and play along! Our challenge this week is sponsored by both Sami Stamps and A Random Fan! Double your pleasure...and prizes!


My card features I Love Books from Sami Stamps. I have two little boys who started school on the 1st, so this was a perfect image for me for this challenge...I just love the way these images are drawn! This fella with his nose in a book could be either of my boys at any time, so I had lot of inspiration to draw from!




I chose this dotty circle die today for two reasons - one, it's new from Gina Marie Designs, and I was so excited, and two...because the challenge this month over at Sami Stamps (#41) is to add dots - so PERFECT, I found DOTS to add without overpowering the elements, patterns in the paper I wanted to use, or this sweet, sweet boy!!

Such a wonderful card! The image is really cute and the red DP makes a great background. I love your choice of embellies too - that tag with "chalk" text on it and the A+ decor are both just perfect! Thank you for joining us at Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge, good luck. Hope to see you soon again!
