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!

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.
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.
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
12 x 12 Expressions Cardstock Stickers #1603

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.
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!
