Back to School?????

In our town, the kids already have been back to school  for 1-1/2 weeks.  Some of the universities started classes this past week.  I'm not quite ready to give up on summer, but I do have fond memories of getting some new school clothes and shopping for school supplies.  So here's a little back to school tag that I made.


Primary color choices of red, blue and yellow are for the Gingersnap Creations GC116 color challenge posted this week, as part of our Joys of Childhood theme for the month of August.


I didn't post this design team work on the day of the challenge because the tag background is done with watercolor crayons and is my tutorial to be posted tomorrow, Saturday, August 27, on the Gingersnap Creations blog.  So if you'd like more information on how I created the tag background, please visit Gingersnap Creations tomorrow to learn all about it!


The sentiment is a digi design from the Stamping Boutique, our August sponsor at Gingersnap Creations.
Dorothy is fussy cut from the Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper collection found in the Flying Unicorn on-line store. 
The watercolor crayons are a basic pack of Sargent purchased locally at Hobby Lobby.  Plastic tokens and yarn from my stash.

Dorothy is thinking happy thoughts about going back to school with her brand new box of crayons!
