Back to School with TGF's FFF


Hello!!  I'm hosting The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday this week!!  I think I'm getting the hang of this -- can I do this, um, forever??  Haha!  Since tons of kiddies have gone back or are going back to school, I went with a Back to School theme.

I chose Do Si Do Anya!  She looks all ready for her first day of school!  Though by the end of the school day, her hair might be all wasted.  My daughter used to go to school with cute hair in the morning and come home a mess!  I finally got to used my school embellishments like the mini ruler and chalk cardstock.  I was gonna write a little more but my kids only had the super fat chalk and that was hard to write with so all I could scribble legibly was A+.   

Oh, surprise!  It's an easel card to hold a post it pad.  Okay, that little pencil looks cute but it's totally only decorative.  Next time, I will use velcro.  It's pretty stuck on with tape.  My kids have so many pencils that are too small to use now so I got some of my cute My Melody washi tape and covered the old looking pencil.  Click on photo if you want to see it larger.  Then I used of the same washi tape and looped it through the paper clip on top.

Here's a little side view.

Alrighty folks, please play along this week!  We love to see lots of people playing!  All the challenge details are on the TGF blog.  Go visit and see more cute TGF school cards!

Thanks for reading!
