~School time is coming up fast!~

Morning everyone.
Can you believe here we only have 2.5 weeks until
school begins? I am just blown away by how
short summers are now.
When I was a child we had 12 weeks off, now
they barely and I mean BARELY have 8 weeks.

Getting the Apple Cider line from Imaginisce
reminded me that fall is fast approaching, so
I decided to make some back to school cards.
So far I have made 1 LOL
And it took me an hour.
Of course I was playing with my Cricut, and the i-rock tool
while doing it. It was very therapeutic.

I took a wide piece of tulle, I think it was 4" and I
gathered it. Then I glued it down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
Then I used Helmar Zapdots and put them over the tulle
and added the wood grain paper.
I like the end result with the tulle on both sides.
I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the words,
and the i-rock tool for all the gems.
That i-rock tool is addicting!!!

I am going to do 2 classes with the i-rock on August 21st.
The class is ONLY 10.00 and I will bring the tool to play with.
If you are anywhere near Kentucky, let me know
the Scrapbook Village is hosting! :)
They are hosting with a PINK dessert too LOL

Well, today is another summer fun day
I feel the library coming on....

~Have a great Wednesday~
~Thanks for popping by~

Love your card! Love the tulle. :) In Canada we have summer break from July 1 - September 8. Funny how we're so close, and yet so different. Hope your last two weeks of vacation are great!
