Taylored Expression's Sketch Challenge #123

Hello everyone...hope you are having a great weekend!!! We got up early and went to the Salado, Texas Art Fair...are we crazy to go out in this 100 degree weather to shop ...YES!!! I bought some earrings and a $1.00 belt for my DGD Autumn but I came home empty handed....what's up with that???? The troops are all going to gather at my parents this evening to see my sister and eat a little.....Mom loves to have all her great grandchildren come over so they can have a double solitaire marathon. My little old 90 year old Mom beats the socks off all the kids...LOL!!!
I got some new October Afternoon papers and stickers the other day and thought I would make some back to school cards for some of the grands.....Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #123 was used (I flipped the sketch on the boy card) and ric rac, a scalloped border, and button and ribbon on the girl card finish them off....sooo easy and fun!!!!

Recipe:
Paper: October Afternoon Recess dp, Baja Breeze, Black
Accessories: Button, Ribbon, Ric Rac, EK Success Scalloped Border Punchs

Thanks for visiting today...I'm headed to my couch to take a little nap before all the fun tonight!!
