Back to School with Belles N Whistles


When I was growing up, I loved the excitement of going back to school- Who would be my teacher? Shopping for that perfect first day of school outfit, and seeing all of my friends. I also have great memories of taking my little sister to school. She is four years younger than me, so although I would like to say I had to take care of her, she has always been very independent and
quite capable of taking care of herself. Even still, I knew that this Sisters stamp, would be perfect for our Back to School Challenge at Belles n Whistles.

I used some of the gorgeous hand-dyed silk ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I love how easy it is to distress the edges of this ribbon. The papers are from Graphic 45.
