Back to School

 
This weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Back to School" & when my daughters were in school that meant SHOPPING !!! We would spend $100's of $$$ & after a week they "didn't have a thing to wear". Heaven forbid they wear anything they already had or that had a small hole in it... NOW people are paying over $100 for ONE pair of jeans that HAVE holes all over them on purpose !!! How ironic is that !!!
This little digi image is called Shopping Girl & prints out like a dream & even comes with a background paper . If you use an image from the Paper Shelter for this weeks challenge you have a chance to win a generous $30 gift certificate. If you use another image & are picked you could win 3 digis of your choice.
 
The sentiment reminds me of my daughters & I, if something fit we DID buy one of every color cuz we could never make up our minds. Unfortunately WE still have that habit only mine is now stamps, ink & cardstock ...
These little shopping bags are so cute but looked a little empty so I made a slit in them, poked some scraps of colored tissue paper into them & added a little bling of Stickles.. 
Have a great day & thank you for stopping by & please check out the many, many amazing images here at the Paper Shelter.
Remember there is a design team call here also & if you'd like to have a chance playing with some of these images just enter the DT call & you could be one of the 7 new ladies we're looking for ... So grab your crafting supplies & let's see the fabulous creations you can whip up.
Hugs, Janie

  7. Fabulous card Janie!! I love the little black bicycle and fun tuffs of tissue in the bags, totally girly! I had to laugh about the paying big bucks for the jeans with holes. Back in my girls teen years that was a forbidden too:)
