Young at Heart

Monday brings a new Crafty Boots challenge. This time it is Young at Heart and I have chosen to make something that reminded me of starting school. 
I have a confession - I collect October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket papers and don't use them. I keep them very carefully and look at them often but don't dare to take a pair of scissors anywhere near them! So, I thought I would be brave and use a piece from October 
Afternoon's Report Card and attach a couple of Wild Cards and some alphabet stickers. I used two of Tim's dies - (Tag and Bookplates and Tiny Tabs and Tags) and a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink at the edges. The ribbon and eyelets are from Stampin' Up. I hope you like my reminiscence of primary school days and you are brave and use something from your stash that you have been holding on to! Have a fabulous week. Gabrielle x

Lovely project! I'm terrible at buying papers and then not cutting into them!! Love the stampin up ribbon ;-) the taffeta ribbon is one of my favs! So versatile! X

Gabrielle, I simple do not know where you get all your fabulous ideas from. I would love to be a spider in the corner of your craft room so I could sit and watch you working and learn from you.
