Why does every week seem to go so quickly?  Although I have thought it was Thursday all day today, I still can’t believe it’s Weds.  My kids go back to school next week, and although I will miss them, it will be nice for them to be back with their friends and learning things again!  Also, I could use some time to myself!!

We have a new SHOWCASE THURSDAY for you this week at DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG and I am super excited to share my creation.  I have been trying to use items from my stash that I usually forget I have and I have used a couple on this week’s creation.  I chose School girl and School boy images, sentiment from School sentiments set and blackboard from school accessories set – all of which can be found at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP .

Everything is colored with Copics and I used Lifestyle Crafts dies on the image, backing, pink pieces and scalloped ovals that flowers are on.  Other cuts were made with Nesties.  Flowers are Petaloo, pins from Little Yellow Bicycle, pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts and clothes pin and ribbon from my stash.  CS is SU and Bazzill and DP is DCWV.  I have also based the color scheme on this one from Design Seeds.  Sure hope you like it.
