They'll be back before we know it!

I can't believe that we are already half way through the Summer Holidays. I remember, as a kid, the Summer Holidays seemed to last forever, and I always remember them as having sunny weather too......maybe that was just mt kiddy rose tinted glasses!!

Luckily, my son seems to be completely oblivious to the passing of time, and has managed to fit in quite a lot of fun stuff so far. I hope he is making the most of it as, all too soon, it will be back to the grind as he starts his final year at Primary School (OMG!!!)

So here's a card that I made, which I think depicts how he is now.....although I know this won't last much longer!

The lovely image is from Digi Stamp Boutique and I have coloured him in with promarkers, before decoupaging his head for a bit of lift. The lovely papers are from NitWits - The Live and Learn FQB...and I have to say I think they are the best 'schooly' papers that I have ever come across.

I also decorated the inside of this card, and here it is......

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Make it Monday
Papertake - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Frame It
Catch The Bug - Photo Challenge

Thanks for looking. I hope to be back with something a little different tomorrow as I have been playing with something a little more nostalgic this space.
