Wee Memories #65 ~ Back to School!

School days...school days...good old golden rule days! Guess what song will be going through your head for a few days;  haha!!! Back to school is the theme for the Wee Memories challenge this week. 


I thought I would make a whimsical little scene for this challenge. Every year for my daughter-in-law's birthday I make her a big stack of little cards she can give to her first grade students as thank yous. I bought this school bus (Rubber Soul) last year for that very purpose. I started with an ivory cardstock then used chalk for my sky, grass and sun. I stamped the sweet houses (KK Originals) colored & cut them out. These trees from Memory Box are one of my favorite stamps. The fence,teeny weeny grass and stones are all from Art Impressions and the heart is Judith. A scrap of paper for my road, brads for the bus tires and a couple of gems for the caution lights! That's about it. Happy singing...~ Lisa
