One Lucky Person Gets Some Head of the Class

I could not help but fall in love with this comment!  For a mother and son to have the same teacher is a once in a lifetime chance, especially when they both adore that teacher.  This warmed my heart and I am happy to send you some Little Yellow Bicycle Head of the Class to scrap a photo of you and Mrs. Wilkins and your son and Mrs. Wilkins!

Please send me your info and I will get the goodies in the mail! lizqualman@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!

Head of the Class Just for You!

As many of you know I am a teacher and would have to say that back to school collections have a special place in my heart.  I made the altered apple frame as a salute to all of the teachers who help our children reach their potential.  I bought the raw frame from my friends at Adornit!  They have the most interesting things to alter and this apple is actually about 8" in size.
So...how would you like to win some of Little Yellow Bicycle's Head of the Class collection???  Please leave a comment telling me a little bit about your favorite teacher and you will be entered into a drawing to win a fairly big pile of Little Yellow Bicycle's Head of the Class!  I will draw for a winner on Monday, September 19th.



ALSO Little Yellow Bicycle is looking for guest designers and you could be one!  Please stop by the blog LYB HERE for more information.

Thank you for stopping by and for chatting about your favorite teacher!

September Sketch from Simple Stories

Time for another sketch from Simple Stories! Still procrastinating about scrapping those delicate and adorable baby photos you have lying around?  I know...the time goes by so fast and who wants to spend their time scrapping when the time could be spent holding the baby before he/she gets too big.  Well, now that the wee ones are grown it is time to get those photos out and make a page with the most PERFECT collection from Simple Stories - Baby Steps.  Above is a sketch I created to go along with a page about my beautiful new niece, who still happens to be small enough to hold.
This is my little sister's first baby and she is so precious.  Rarely cries and when she does has one of those cute little cries that makes you say, "Bless her heart."  Not at all like my 3 year old son who has this piercing scream that will make you give him anything including the remote, a carbonated beverage, a bag of chips or whatever it takes to keep that child from screaming.  Guess they come in all shapes and sizes.  For now we will just concentrate on this little angel.
The Simple Stories cardstock stickers make the perfect embellishment.  I love to use foam tape to lift them off the page and a bit of chalk ink to give them some dimension.  This tree is just precious.
Love to create titles using the Cardstock Stickers and some of the Journal Spots from the Expressions 12 x 12 sheet.  This one is really cute.  Just added some cardstock to matte the sticker and a little ink for definition and then lifted it off the page with some foam tape.

Who isn't crazy about these sweet little blocks.  Had to use them to top off my page.

Baby Step Collection Materials:
12 x 12 Fundamental Cardstock Stickers #1602

More Head of the Class from LYB

It's time for another Head of the Class page from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I can't say enough great things about this collection.  It is so versatile and could be used with little tykes and big, big kids.  I really love the bright colors with the added grunge.  It gives primary colors a great new outlook.  I also adore the 10 Things Pocket, so my daughter and I had to load it up with the 10 Things She Loves About School.  Of course Art and P.E. are at the top of the list, but Writing is in the top 3.
This collection comes with a really fun cardstock sticker alphabet which can easily be mixed and matched with the Favorite Pieces cardstock stickers and chipboard.  I used them to create my title.  I also love the huge chipboard paper clips, so fun to add to the page and decorate with the Dimensional Dot stickers and Jewels.
Added a Clear Cut Shape clock, a journal card and a chipboard apple and jewel sticker to finish off this cluster.  The colors really jump off the page and make this hilarious photo of my daughter really pop.  I would recommend snatching up this collection before it is ALL GONE.  You are not going to want to miss out on this one!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
