Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge #81 "Princess"

This week Emma over at http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ would like us to use The Tinkerbell Cartridge. Well since I do not have that one I used the 2 closest ones to a princess that I do have ; Once Upon A Princess  and Storybook. This was a challenge for me, since I only have a boy, but I love challenges! I made this for one of my son's friends in his class who has a Birthday approaching soon. I made her a little purse and a magical wand. Since her name begins with the letter "A" I put in on it. I will put a gift card in and stuffed it with tissue paper. I hope this is Princess enough but I am hoping with her magical wand she can get rid of her food allergies!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge #9 ~ "Back To School"

So excited that Throwback Thursday are back and I was able to participate! This week we had the "Back To School" theme. Emma used the "Paisley" cartridge, I do not own that one but I do have "Makin The Grade" cartridge. So I decided to do a 12x12 page and make it sorta look like a chalkboard! I used all scraps for this except for the brown and black paper to make the chalkboard. Always saving scraps, I have a drawer full of them and finally found some use! Lol. This was my son's first day of pre-school in 2008, again shows how far behind I am! I hope you enjoy!
