WW #150 Back to School

This week's challenge at Wicked Wednesday is always a bit sad because it marks the end of summer, it is the BACK TO SCHOOL theme. 

Yesterday was the 1st day of school in our district and my son's 1st day of being a ninth grader and surprisingly, he was a tad bit more calmer about his first day of high school than I am. As cool and grown-up as he thinks he is....I still take a picture of him sitting on the steps next to his backpack on the 1st day, just like every other mother! #best9thgraderever!

And in just a few short weeks we take our daughter back to college, hopefully we'll be finishing up with her shopping by the end of next week. #bestdaughterever!

Our sponsor this week is Time for Tea and the image is called Apple for Teacher.

Distress inks and school related rub-ons were applied for the background. The image was fussy cut, outlined with a charcoal pencil and smudged, then it was outlined again with a white Signo pen.

You can join this fun challenge too, just make sure your ATC is uploaded over at the Wicked Wednesday challenge blog by 7:00 pm EST next Tuesday evening. My teamies have created some very inspiring ATCs which you can see HERE.

Happy Thursday, enjoy what comes your way!
