First Day of School

We are off to England on Friday for a vacation and to visit dear friends.  Now while this is a good thing, the bad thing is that when I am gone I am going to miss my granddaughter's very first ever day of school.  She is entering Junior Kindergarten and after the staggered entry they have set up, she will be going on a school bus so I made this card for her and will leave it with her Mommy to give to her.  Traveling on a huge school bus will be quite an adventure for a very petite 4 year-old and I can't wait to hear how she does.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Ooh La La Creations - Stripes
The Pink Elephant - Back to School
Bee Crafty - Anything Goes
All Sorts - New Beginnings
Fussy and Fancy - Back to School
Stamp Something - Something Cute
Meljens Designs - Stripes
