Back to School

Summer can't be over already?!?!  But alas, it is!  School has begun and  it's Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of Summer.  We seem to be settling back into the routine just fine, and I look forward to Fall, but I'm just not ready for my small man to be getting so big!  He is a 1st grader now and it seems like just yesterday that he only a promise I had yet to meet.

I like to create traditions for important days so last year I made him card and special breakfast for his first day of school.  I decided it would be an annual thing, something to look forward to that added a bit of fun and lots of love to a day that can be scary (or at least nervous butterfly inducing).  This year I used Back To School Luka from La-La-Land Crafts on his card.  He is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I also used a couple of LLLC dies - Open Hearts Border, Hearts Doily Border, and Heart Banner.  The notebook edge was made using a border punch.  I added a length of ruler ribbon, mini Scrabble tiles to spell out his name, two Tim Holtz metal embellishments (muse token and pin), a punched apple from Marth Stewart, and a couple of chipboard stickers from my stash.  Papers are DCWV - Grade School stack.  

Breakfast was fresh cut strawberries and bananas, bacon, and an English muffin.  He is loving school and his teacher this year so we're off to a fantastic start!

I hope everyone has something fun planned for their weekend!  Anyone plan to spend it crafting?  Yeah, that's what I though!  Enjoy!

Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, B32, B34, YG11, YG13, W4, W6, R20, R35, R37, R39, R89
