School's Out For The Summer

Well, maybe not yet, but it won't be long now til the echoes of "I'm bored" will be heard in streets all over the UK.  Yes, the summer holidays are looming.  It might seem a long time for the kids, but before you know it, we will be in September and the new school year starts - and for many, that will mean a change of school, including my pal's little lad who will be setting off for high school (honestly, he doesn't look big enough).

LOTV Ideas To Inspire Blog have launched their own monthly challenge and in anticipation of the new boys stamp release this weekend, the challenge theme is Boy Oh Boy.

So I made this for my pal's little lad, and for the challenge:

I am discovering that despite the new Samsung phone being all singing-all dancing, I can still get better photos with my old Nokia!  This card is square, not with wibbly edges - that's the barrelling effect of the lens on the camera!

Stamped image is LOTV Back To School
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Brickwork papers are Joy Crafts Paper Bloc
Pencil stamp from a Hero Arts set, Phone and Watch stamps from a Stamps Away set
Graffiti is all Squirrel in Distress Markers

Hugs, Squirrel xx
