It's Back to School...

Already?  At least for me it is!
As the Office Manager for an Elementary School, I started back on Wednesday, August 1st.
There is so much work to be done prior to the first day of school.
I'm already worn out just thinking about getting everything checked of my "To Do" list.

Thank Goodness I can get creative and reduce my stress!

Friday is our challenge day at Digi Haven - our theme this week, "Back to School".
See challenge details below picture.

"Back to School" digi challenge - Use any "Free" Back to School digital image.
The image can be a forever freebie, limited time freebie, or freebie of the month,
as long as it is free for the duration of this challenge.
Whichever freebie you use, please be sure to link back to the original artist or website on your blog.
This challenge ends on Thursday, August 9th.

So please check out the Design Team inspiration, find a "freebie" image to use and join us this week.

For my card I used Thomas from Michelle Perkett Studio.
I love her style and have fallen in love with many of her images.
Check out her Etsy online store HERE, I'm sure you'll find something you like.

I thought Thomas would be perfect to use for my "Back to School" card.
I really enjoyed coloring him and wanted his vest to match the paper I had in my stash.
I added staples, a small pencil and used some paperclips for my embellishments.

I had emailed Michelle to find out if the image would be available until the 9th.
Michelle doesn't leave a freebie up that long, however...
She has given me permission to use him for the duration of the challenge only.

Thomas will be removed from my blog at midnight (PST) on Thursday, August 9.
Please go to her link first, and grab the freebie there. 
If it is no longer available there, you can grab it from my blog.
Thank you Michelle for your generosity.
