Middle School is Scary! Going- Grey with The Wild Flower Patch Shop

Happy Tuesday!!! Today is the first day of school for me! I am thrilled to be working in a second grade classroom this year with some wonderful kiddos. It is also time for another fantastic challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations! This week our challenge is an easy one I think, the theme is "For a Child". We have a wonderful sponsor this week The Wild Flower Patch.They have some of the most adorable images I've seen including Wild Flower Kids Digis and they were gracious enough to give the DT some to use to inspire you this week! Be sure to check out their store! One lucky person will win 5 digis of their choice from The Wild Flower Patch.

I made this card for one of the boys that moved up to middle school this year. He was so nervous about leaving our school and moving up that I told him I was going to write to him right after school started in Sept. and let him know he did great the first few days of school! He'll just be happy to know I was thinking of him! He was a bit of a daredevil so I thought this boy with the skateboard was perfect for him. I tried to give his shirt a tye die look using just the orange. What do you think?

The ladies really did a fantastic job on their creations this week so be sure to let them know how much they inspired you!
Welcome our 2 new Design team members
