Hi my dear friends! Thursdays are always special to me because they announce a new exciting challenge for us over at Digital Pencil Too! This time we are going back to school!!! No idea how this works for you out there in the wide wild world lol but here in Romania the school year used to begin on the 15th of September, that's if the Education minister doesn't have a change mood overnight and have this changed too, as it usually happens with all the decisions in this field. It's not a laughing matter, I'm just a bit bitter about how educational matters are dealt with in my country lately and had none to complain to...:)
Ok, so back to more simple matters, such as this school set I had in mind to make for this week's challenge. Have you seen Mo's recent images? I swear I spent about 2 hours deciding on what images to ask for this months' cards I have to make as member of the DT. I just have to have them all and Mo has been so prolific these past weeks!!! Gosh, and there are so many from the old ones I simply HAVE to color too!!!
In the meantime, I will just sit back and admire them from your beautiful creations:)
Ok, so here are my pencil holder and little notebook. I kept them simple, just to focus on the image. I chose this adorable little fellow because I also have a boy so I thought he might use this a bit later. The girl counterpart is just as sweet, you can check all the four stamps in the set here.

Hope you will enjoy playing along at Mo's this week! Kids go back to school these days so why not make something special for them. Mine has just been sent to the kindergarten for three days now. I barely sleep and I'm all dressed up, shoes on, eyes on the phone and ready to leave the house within minutes. So far he has been good, hope he will adapt although I miss him so much:(
Thank you all for being here today!
Wish you all a great week!
