Back to School

     It's hard to believe that it's back to school time already.  Where did the summer go? We have Middle school orientation tomorrow. My daughter will be in the 7th grade. That is so hard to believe. She is growing up.

     Anyway, my card today is a back to school card using a Meljens Designs digital stamp called "Study Owl". The paper i found in my stash.  I think that i bought it at Michaels years ago. I used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle to mount the image on.  The glasses were given the glass effect with Crystal Lacquer. I colored the image with Copic markers along with the large paperclip.  I found the mini mechanical pencil in one of my Misc... drawers.
