Is it really that time already???

I can't believe it but the Summer holidays is nearly at an end...I can't believe how quickly that time passes by! With just over a week to go, we are now getting ready for my son to start a secondary school - a big leap and quite sad in a way as I know that things are about to change BIG TIME and my 'little' boy will soon be lost forever.  :o(

Still - for every occasion there is a card to be made, and this is no exception, and I would like to think that my son will be a bit like this card when he goes back to school (although in reality, I know we will be arguing about him doing his homework, probably from day one......he's a typical boy in that respect and tells me tat he doesn't 'agree' with homework!!)
This is a really sweet little image from DSB and I have paired it up with my Live n Learn Nitwits papers set, which I  sized to perfection on Serif.

Since I had plenty of paper, I also made a variation on the theme, using the same image but a slightly different layout.

And as always, there are some lovely challenges out there that I would like to enter, and here they are......

Thanks for visiting today.
