Back To School Week 2

It's our second week in this month's Back to School themed Ways To Use It challenge.  I am today's hostess and have challenged crafters to use staples on their projects.  Do you know how hard those little buggers are to line up straight.  Obviously I gave up, after I removed about six staples!!!  And did you also know that a little white acrylic paint on a toothpick fills in staples hole pretty well????  With the start of school and just coming back from a camping trip, I needed a sketch to get me going!  Okay, I always start with sketches ;)  Today, I leaned on Karen Giron for this fabulous sketch! I like the look of the banner at the bottom of the circle and felt like I could use some staples there!

Well, it's a school night so I had best be wrapping things up!  Thanks for stopping by!
