I can't believe that time is just around the corner but school will soon be back in swing in just a few weeks. I decided to make a little "welcome, back!" card using this digital image from Digital Stamp Oasis. I colored over the message that was on the board, and added a new message with a white gel pen. I think that using plaid gave me a flash to the past to a new school dress my mother made me for one of those first day of school events, and I also had a Scottish plaid lunchbox that my grandfather handpainted my name on (one of his many talents was a sign painter). And I mean he put the whole full name on it which had to go diagonally from one corner to the other: Elizabeth Ann Austin. Just traveling down memory lane. As a retired public school teacher, what joy it is to not have to deal with those first day situations that I'm sure every kindergarten teacher across the country has to face. My greatest fear was always getting a kid on the wrong bus to go home. What a nightmare!!!God bless all you teachers who are already hard at work getting those classrooms ready. No one really knows how much of your time and your own money are tied up in that classroom. Hope you are blessed with a wonderful year!
