 I had a lot of fun with this layout. The kids have been going to preschool this year and are absolutely loving it. I'm not sure how long I had that chalk board paper, but I bought it a long time ago, knowing I would use it for a school layout. Do you ever buy supplies way in advance?

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #13

Are you ready for another card sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap? The latest one is full of fun possibilities.
For my card I dug through my scrap paper and came up with some fun papers from
Authentique, My Minds Eye & Bella Boulevard. I also used some stamps and a dies from PaperTrey Ink.

Brads are often neglected in my craft room. I have a ton, every color, size... But somehow they end up forgotten. I did get them out for this card though. The top piece is embellished with some green brads for extra texture.
