Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #20

Here is another Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge that I needed to complete!  This one is challenge #20 and it was hosted by Laurie and she challenged us to make anything with a school theme in honor of the kiddos/teachers going back to school.

I based this card off another "Got Sketch" sketch that I loved.  This one is an older one from July, #101 and you can view it here.

Isn't this a fun layout?  I'm not always the greatest at combining patterned papers but I really thought that these patterns were fun and worked together to create just the right school themed card.

I cut the apple out after I stamped it...yes Laurie, I CUT again!!  Can you believe it??  For those who don't know, I am not a fan of cutting at all.  I like very simple.  No work.  :)

I tied the button with baker's twine that matches Hawaiian Shores.  I have this for sale in my Etsy shop too!  You can check it out here.  You get 10 yards for $2.00!

We'd love to have you play along with us over on the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog!! Everyone is always welcome to join us!!
