School Rocks

So I always mean to do all these challenges and blog posts. Sometimes I even have cards made or drafts started and I just forget to finish them. Others, like today, I pretty much forgot everything until the very last minute. I wanted to get the kids, or at least the oldest, to do the Simon Says Stamp Back to School Vacation kids challenge. Which ends today. If Patricia hadn't posted the fantastic card her son made I wouldn't have remembered at all! Thanks Nick and Patricia!

Here is Archer's card. He decorated the front, back, and inside. I think I need to start letting him (and ONLY him) use my ink pads. The kid ones are extremely juicy.

And, yes, that is our update after one week of school. So far, school rocks. He has had great teacher feedback, has been getting ready without complaint, and is excited to go back. I'm very grateful and happy!
Thanks so much for looking!
Stamps - Paper Smooches Smarty Pants
