Are You Ready?


It's time to head....







We live less than a block from an elementary school... so even though my children are grown, I have many opportunities to watch the back to school activity.


Children walking by with backpacks hanging from a shoulder; school buses turning into the school parking lot; I can even hear the bells ringing when it's time for the school day to start.


So, I think the new challenge at MelonHeadz Friends is PERFECT!

Isn't it fun living near a school - we also have that privilege and I enjoy watching the children come and go past our place.
Wonderful cards Jeanette.

You are so lucky to see all the cuties on the way to school! I have a bus stop outside my office window and they slay me with those backpacks the size of their entire torso!

both cards are too cute. I really like the interior of the first card. Looks very professional, my friend!
