Happy Days Are Here Again!!

Now what parent doesn't sing that tune when the start of school comes around each year?   I know I did until my daughter became a freshman in high school this year; then she really became expensive. 

I finally felt well enough to do a MFT challenge AND get it done on time. This week's challenge had to do with back to school, blue, and using a Jolinne stamp.  Easy peasy.  I pulled out My Heart Sings Jolinne and stamped her on perfect panels then colored with prismacolor markers.  I'm so happy I didn't mess up the coloring since I'm out of practice. 

After layering on some MFT digital music paper and DCWV linen background paper, I was ready for the final touches: primas, 3 types of $1 ribbon, and silver baby braddies.

Stamps:  MFT My Heart Sings Jolinne
Cardstock: White, Stampin Up! Ballet Blue, DCWV Linen Matt Stack, MFT Ditigal Music Paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin Up! Bashful Blue
Accessories: MFT Baby Braddies, Primas, Glue Dots, Ribbon, Prismacolor Markers, Stipple Brush
