Here's to all the teachers in our midst..I know a lot of you are current or former teachers, home school teachers, aides, and or all around kid helpers :) I've done substitute teaching and currently volunteer as a reading mentor in an elementary school. I know how difficult and rewarding it can be. I might just send this card to my volunteer buddy..my partner in crime (LOL) just before we start back to our "book club" in a month or so.

What a beautiful school collage, Polly! It took me awhile to look at everything, but that's your style and it fits you well! The houndstooth dp reminds me of wool material for a skirt, the girl brings me back to my childhood days, the plaid tag with star-so school like, and of course the sentiment, pencil, letters-you got it all girl~

Polly, this is TERRIFIC! Love the little girl who looks so anxious to start her school year. Your accompanying details of report card, alphabet images and brads, pencil image and even a little milk bottle cap(milk $$ pinned to one's undershirt?)!....are all fabulous on this vintage-inspired card. Into my favs!
