Sentimental Sundays #70 - Back to School

Good morning Sunday! :) By the time this post goes live my mother and her partner will be on the way to the airport for their yearly holiday. I'll admit, Lou home alone for two weeks poses its dangers - but I'll be fineee! :) Means I actually get to have a lie in on my days off, I cannot WAIT!

Enough of the small talk. I wanna introduce you to the new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays this week. I know I've been slacking lately, but I think I'm finally settling into my work schedule and have eventually managed to get my time organised. Please forgive me.

So this week us sentimental fools want to see projects for


I decided to go all out and make a 'journal page' if you could even call it that. As soon as I seen the title for the challenge I had the PERFECT image in mind.. and then when my monthly kit from Sarahs Cards LTD popped through my door last week I also had the PERFECT sentiments to go with it.

So here it is..

I have coloured the image using ProMarkers and used papers from my monthly kit. I will list all supplies at the end. This cutie is called High School Student, she is a Simply Sassy and you can get her HERE at Funky Kits.

I apologise now for my horrendous hand writing, you don't need to tell me how bad it is, I get told on an almost daily basis from close friends and family.

Please head on over to the challenge blog now to see what can be won and looksie at what the other awesome ladies have got in store for ya this week.
