ABC, 123 It's Back to School for You (Not Me!)

School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hickory stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate
"I love you, so"
When we were a couple of kids

Happy Hump Day everyone! It's time for another fabulous challenge at Digistamps4Joy. This fortnight our challenge is all about back to school. Yup, the kids...and or partners, are going back to school and we want you to make something to welcome them back...or convey your sympathies *laughing*.

Now I don't have anyone going back to I decided to make something that either me or my dd could use. I used Emma for my creation and oh my goodness she is just a dream to work with. Because my dd and I are avid readers (more often than not you can find her nose in a book *laughing*, I decided to make a book mark.
I just love this image...isn't she just adorable in her little dress and hat. She looks all ready for her first day of school. I paper pieced her and made the base with scraps from my stash. The green dp is from SU. I coloured her flowers and band on her hat and the top of her dress with SU markers. The rest of her is coloured with Crayola pencil crayons and oms.  

The Vintage book mark design are by Nicecrane Designs. The small pink flatbacked pearls are by Recollections and the green one's on the flowers are from my local dollar store. The flowers were made by me using my punches.

Thank you for coming and looking at my creation. We hope to see you enter your own creation in our challenge. You can find all of the rules and a list of prizes on Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog.

Thanks ~ Charlene
