Happy Friday! These days are just flying by! I can’t believe this is the last weekend of August. The Paper Pretties challenge this week is Back to School. Now, you’re going to look at this card and ask how the heck does this card go with back to school. Well, let me let you in on my thinking…
As I’ve mentioned, my daughter starts Kindergarten this year. My son will attend a half-day preschool program 5 days a week. When some people hear this, they say “what on earth will you do with yourself?” Some seem to think I’ll be lounging poolside, eating bon bons, reading a book and relaxing — living the life of luxury. So this is my card for the delusional people who think this will be my life when the kids start school! LOL!
Now, the details on my card — I inked up Soakin’ Up the Sun Sophia, masking a bit to include the palm tree and beach bag. She’s colored up with Copics in a fun pink & red combo. I embossed Pretty in Pink with Bloom Dots and matted that on Gina K Rocket Red. The ribbon is some fun Michaels ribbon, which I love how it mimics the beach bag. The sentiment is from the set as well and is blinged up a bit with pink rhinestones. I can dream that “this is the life” for me, can’t I?!
This is the Life!
