SCHOOL DAYS

NOW TRADED
This week's challenge on TGIF was to do a school theme. I've been looking for a chance to use this little fella from a Lisa's Altered Art collage sheet for a while - serious sort of chap isn't he? From the look of him he's wearing an awful lot of itchy woollen underwear!

Now you know I can't resist the vintage look so used more of the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket paper that I can't get enough of, and the ABC letters and the words came from Tim Holtz distressables. I made the blackboard myself with a scrap of black card and a white pen.

Actually he's a budding genius and is gazing scornfully at his Nanny, who is trying to teach him the basics. He's actually been reading Einstein with Papa in the evenings ... his name is already down for Eton obviously, and his ambition is to become a member of the Royal Society of Mathematicians. Oh I do ramble on .....

Very entertaining Rosie - this really made me smile (glad to see you got the maths correct, I'll mark them later and give you a gold star). The ATC is gorgeous though - so much to look at.
Love Linda xx

What a fantastic little fellow. Can you imagine how itchy that clothing was? Yikes....I'm scratching as I write. I love your commentary to accompany this very wonderful piece. As an aside, I see that you love Shawn Colvin too! You have EXCELLENT taste in music my friend. I've long been a fan of hers too!
