back to school

Morning girls
Friday already so time for a new challenge from us Totally Papercrafts girlies and it's hosted this 
week by the lovely Caroline, her theme is ...


sponsored by

and these goodies from Simon Says too

We're also saying cheerio to one of our lovely team:(  
Carol has decided to step down, I'm not alone in saying she has been a great asset to 
Totally Papercrafts and all us girls are sure going to miss her.

So, onto my little project for this week.  I actually made this a week or two ago as the little girl next door was starting school.  We go back a couple of weeks earlier here in Scotland.
The box was recycled, it once held some big fabric flowers but with a few strips of paper from Safrass Lass and some nice new colouring pencils it was transformed into a cute little box.  The bookmark was made from the same papers and strengthened with some red card stock.

So, that's my effort for this week girls.  Hopefully you'll find the time to play along.
Thanks for stopping by and have a smashing weekend.
