School ~ Zone

Wow, I am amazed at the progress I have made the last few days....feels so good to be a craft-a-holic again!!!  I hope it doesn't disappear like it did last time....LOL!  I missed looking at everyone's wonderful creations, and as soon as I sat down and started visiting blogs, that's when I could feel the creativity surging through my veins.  It is very therapeutic and awe inspiring to share a craft with so many others who enjoy the arts and vibrant colors.  HAPPY TO HAVE YOU ALL IN MY LIFE (even if it is only via blog posts and comments).

The LO I finished today has a school theme and I love its simplicity.  I really enjoyed the colors in these patterned papers because they were in tune with Fall being right around the corner.  I also enjoyed the fact that I couldn't find any "o"s in my chipboard letter stash, but was able to use two hearts and a button to fill it in.  I think it added just the right touch.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
