School Stitching Mashup!

 WooHoooo - it's time for the Friday Mashup!  I had fun creating the card for this week and made it especially for our new Assistant Principal.  The "Mash  Up!" challenge this week is:

1. Create a project with "Stitching or Faux Stitching".
2. Or Create a project for "Back To School or a Teacher Gift".
3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Back To School Project with Stitching"!

Since I don't have any apple stamps at the present time, and I already used the little school bus from the "Every Little Bit" set a couple of weeks ago - I decided to get out the wise old Owl punch and to borrow this clever apple from Angela McKay - the North Shore Stamper.  When I was doing the faux stitching I didn't add any paper piercing to it because the stitches on the letters were going to be too small.

Be sure to stop over at the Friday MashUp! challenge blog to check out all the wonderful designs from the design team!  And when you upload your creation be sure you tag it with FM23 on public galleries.

Another quick project that I created for myself was to use some of my leftover Decore Elements Flourishes on this Daytimer from Staples - which I will use at school since we didn't get Agendas this year.

Love, love, loving the warm September weather right addition to eating the apples right off the tree.  Hope you have some things to brighten your day!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
