School Somethings and big stamp sale!!!!

Today over at Stamp Something, we are getting ready for back to school! So the challenge this week is to create something that is school related!! How Fun!!! Pop over to check out the DT samples, WOW WOW WOW.

The lighting in the photo is a little off, but I was having trouble getting the detail to show in brighter light.
Anyway I used baja breeze cardstock as the based and stamped the flannel plaid backgound in baja breeze on it. I used my CB and tiny bubbles on the pacific point layer. To make he jagged edge on the whisper white I used decorative scissors; I wanted to use my scallop edge punch but it seemed a little girly. I then added celery grosgrain and blue square eyelets.
This little guy is colored in with watercolor wonder crayons and my aquapainters.
Finally I used my 2 square punches then the sentiment from AYC 1. I omitted the "new" part of the sentiment and added "school" using rough edges alphabet in celery. It is popped up on a dimensional.

I am getting my list together of retired stamp sets, 12x12 papers, other accessories, CB folders and old catalogs to sell. I really need to clear out some space in my stamp room. So keep checking back for that post or email me if there's something you're looking for and we can make a deal:) Please put "stamp for sale" in the title of the email so I know what it's about. Some sets that are on the list.....almost all SAB sets from years past, By land(NUM), tall tales alphabet and lots more!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
