Back to School!

This has been a wild and crazy week for me!  It was my first day back with a new class of kindergartners, my daughter's first day as a senior in high school, gulp, and my son's, my baby's, first day as a kindergartner.  Talk about a whirlwind of emotions and a very exhausting week.  It was also the first day back for several other members of my family as they work in the school system as well.  Sometimes I get the energy to make a little something to give to them for their first day and this year I made a few of those cute little tissue boxes that you can put a travel box of tissues inside.

The images I used on each box are Olympics, from Saturated Canary and On top of the World by Tiddly Inks.  My sister is a Physical Education Teacher so I thought the sports image would be just perfect for her!

I have been working really hard on improving my coloring, especially my hair and skin since that is the class that I am currently taking with Alyce at Kit and Clowder, which I LOVE!  Her classes are so wonderful that I truly hope to continue to take all of her classes until I have finished them all.  These images are colored after part of her hair and skin class.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Prima Flowers
Spellbinder's Circle and Scalloped Circle dies
Cheer Lynn Designs Fancicul Flourish die
MS Frond Punch 

Although it was a hectic and exhausting week it was also a good one as both kids had a good first day of school.  Mine turned out pretty good as well so, all in all, I would call our week a success.  I hope all of you and your children experienced good first days as well!  Now, time to enjoy the weekend!
Have a great Saturday!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
