Back to School

Today the children in this area went back to school following the summer break. To be able to stay at home and craft, instead of going into school to start a new year and teach a new class of children, is just the best feeling! I did enjoy being with the children, but at my time of life, this is much better!
I saw this image from Fred She Said on someone's blog this morning and loved it immediately, so I went straight to the website and bought it.
The apple is coloured with Copics and mounted on a piece of card embossed with the Cuttlebug numbers folder. The paper is from Cuddly Buddly and the corners are made from Cuttlebug Vintage Squares, cut diagonally and trimmed of the excess joining bits in the middle.
Tonight I start back at my choir, I expect the old voice might be a bit rusty!

  15. What a lovely image - I recently made a card for my niece starting nursery and put an apple or two on the card. Did you ever get brought an apple in from any of your pupils... i never saw anyone take an apple for the teacher while i was at school... wonder where the association came from?
