Stampin' for the Weekend - Back to School

Woo hoo, it's nearly that time again! The kids are back to school in 3 weeks and it's not a moment too soon. Rain for most of the summer (again) has left them stuck indoors and very hard to amuse. Ok, so I'll miss the morning lie ins, the pj days, the easy going routine but I won't miss the fighting, crying, whining and screaming!!! Love my kids really :) 

Anyhoooo.. enough of my rambling. The challenge on Stampin' for the Weekend for this fortnight is Back to School.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, our very generous monthly sponsor and the prize up for grabs is a $25 voucher to spend in their online store!! With all the new CHA stuff coming out this is definitely a prize to have :D 

My background paper is from Kaisercraft and is called Simon Says (how apt, lol) and I've paired it with some Bo Bunny "Sophie" and brown cardstock. 

The cute image is from The Greeting Farm and she's been coloured using copic markers. I used nesties Labels 2 to cut out my image and shaded the background with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet distress ink.

Both ribbons, button threaded with scrappers floss, Wild Orchid flowers and pink crystal gems are from my stash. 

Copics Used:
Skin: E11, E21, E51, E00, E000
Cheeks: E02
Skirt & Hairclip: E15, E18
Shirt: R81, R83, R85
Hair: E50, E53, E45
Books: B12, B14, B16 (blue) & W1, W3, W5 (grey)
