Little Girl's Apron/1st day of school

Today my *not so little * girls go back to school. As they were primping and getting ready, I thought about all of our first days of school. And how little they were on their first day of kindergarten, barely able to make that big step onto the school bus. My, how they've come a long way over all those years. I'm so proud of my reds and I'm hoping for a great school year!! And I even miss all the noise they made all summer, it's SO quiet here today. I thought I would share a card, just perfect for a little girl. I used Karen Lockhart's Apron stamp and a Papertrey sentiment, along with paper from Imaginesce and ribbon from Making Memories. If you click on the link to the apron stamp HERE, you will notice that I cut off the bottom pockets of the larger apron image. That shortens the apron and makes a perfect sized apron for a little girl. I'll have to take a photo of the little apron my mom made for me when I was a little girl....she found it the other day and I was SOOO happy! It's tiny though, I'm not sure it EVER fit around my chubby little body.
I hope you have a GREAT day! I know many of you will be sending your *little* ones off to school soon. Enjoy each and every day with your loved ones.
Be sure to stop by Nichole's blog today for some new product finds that are in store now at the Papertrey website...view the new First Fruits 8 x 8 paper collection... and see some more sneak peeks from the awesome PT Design Team. Tonight's the big night, the new August releases will be available at midnight. Woohoo, there's a party goin' on 2-Nite at the Papertrey Forum! Don't miss it!

Can't believe your beautiful "reds" are already back to school - such fun. My one & only red is off to his 1st year of college. The time goes so fast! Love your apron card & your PTI preview. I have some tiny aprons my Grandmother made for my sisters & me so many years ago. Love them.

Wow! School time already! We can't start until after Labor Day in Wisconsin. Your girls are precious and you're such a good Mom to make them a card!! Isn't it fun to surprise them! :)

What a cute card! And your reds are adorable. Especially with the kitty. I hope they had a fabulous first day back.

What a great picture of the girls to cherish. Their gorgeous hair is the same as my 25 year old already married daughter. I still miss the first day of school and all the excitement that goes with it. What an adorable card. I do love that apron stamp.

Your card is very sweet! the paper piecing on the apron, the scallops and ribbon are all so perfect!

Wow Mish...your little girls are so sweet. I like the apron card. I am from Ontari and my kids don't go back to school until Sept. They were off the last week of June. How does it work where you are? Is your school off in June too?

I'm hoping for some grandkids with the hair color of your girls. None of my 3 have red hair but their deceased dad sure did. I absolutely love your newest apron card. I too love all things vintage and enjoy looking at all of your projects.
