Friends Going Back to School

Hey there friends!  Today the challenge at Speedy TV the challenge is a themed challenge and it is all about going back to school.  It is perfect around these parts as my daughter starts school tomorrow and I go back to work (at a school) on Wednesday!  By now, you are probably used to seeing my clean and simple creations.  I got a little tricky this week by layering my wide grosgrain ribbon through my patterned paper.  I used my craft knife to trim around my apple and then just wove it through there.  I secured it on the backside with some scor-tape!  The patterned paper provide me with the perfect place for my sentiment, which I masked and stamped a couple of times to get it on one line.  A bit of bling finishes it out!
 
Don't forget to play along and then you can be in the running for a Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called I'm in Stitches.  Take a look at it right here! 
 
You know that measuring tape in this set doubles so well as a ruler too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Labor Day!
