An Apple for the Teacher
Happy New (School) Year! I love the start-up of school. I enjoy putting up the paper and setting up the room. I love getting out all the new school supplies and meeting the students. I love finding out about their summer and seeing how they've grown. Somehow the glow tends to wear off in about 2 weeks to a month but there is always so much hope and promise in the first few weeks.
I'm playing with my new Bella stamp. I normally wouldn't have sponged the background of the image but I managed to drop a brown Copic marker just as I was finishing colouring and I didn't want to start over or throw away my effort. I cropped much of the mistake off with my Nestie, softened what was left with my blender pen and then sponged over top. I'm hoping no one will notice if I don't tell. Shhh! Don't rat me out! I didn't have a "Welcome" or "Welcome back" sentiment and went hunting. I thought it was an absolute score when I found this "Happy New Year" sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers. It was with the Pussywillows set. Will probably send this to our librarian. She is amazing! I love to acknowledge all the people that help me so much during the school year.
