School's Out For Summer!

Unfortunately :sigh:, no it's not. In fact, school just started yesterday (Thursday), so it was back to school for the 13 year old, back to work for me and off to college for my 18 year old. (She's very excited about college and is definitely getting the most fun out of this deal!) The summer went by entirely too fast, as it always does, making me wish for that first day of summer vacation all over again!

So, when I saw that this week's Totally Papercrafts challenge was "Inspired by a Song", I knew I had to use this wonderfully cute bear, Louie with Apple, from DigiStamp Boutique to make a school-inspired card in homage to Alice Cooper and his song.

Wouldn't this make an adorable teacher card? The black strip of patterned paper is from some Creative Memories graduation paper, leftover from graduation layouts of my nieces. It reminded me or writing on a chalkboard. I love being able to pull out a scrap of paper and have it be just the right thing for my card. :)

I'm also entering Louie into this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge - Back to School and Pile It On's Cuddly Critters challenge.
