We enroll for school today.....then the count down begins for August 14th, the first day of school. We have done all of our shopping and just have a binder for Jordan and a pair of volleyball shoes for Josey yet to buy. The bank of mom is just about tapped out!
Josey will start volleyball practice a week or so after school starts, so it will be a new transition for us......having her away from home more, going to her weekly ballgames and trying to crunch in homework, etc. I always miss my girls when school starts...the house is so quiet and the summer time activities are all gone. So I thought it would be fun to make some little notecards to tuck into the girls' book binders every now and then with a special note from Mom....and maybe some money for a pop after school for the bus ride home.
These little notecards measure about 3" x 5". I used 3 of Karen Lockhart's new stamps....the monkey, the bananas and the little *you little monkey* sentiment. I'm always saying that to the girls. Patterned paper is from K and Company, notecards and punches from Stampin' Up!.
For the girls' names on the envelopes I used a new font from JustRite Stampers. It's called Brayton and I love the look of it. I used Copic markers to color in the monkey and the bananas. I hope to make some more little notecards similar to these so I can have a stash to tuck in the girls' binders.
Have you started school shopping yet? We had a fun time...we sat down the next day and unwrapped all the supplies and marked every supply...down to the last colored pencil....with the girls' names. They're all ready to go!
