I absolutely LOVE the first day of school! I have so much fun attempting to pronounce my students' names correctly (I didn't do so well the first day) and watching them interact with all the friends they haven't seen all summer. I think I laughed more on the first day of school than all summer combined... it's funny remembering how obnoxious I was as a student! So, in the theme of back to school, I chose to post a card with apples. I made this card forever-ago for the boyfriend's mom, Jan... she might love apples more than I do... might. I found patterned apple paper at JoAnn's and stacked it on top of two different shades of kraft cardstock. I then used a twine bow to top it off. Ta da! Happy crafting!
