This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I turned the sketch on its side, though. :) I have had the ABC Alphabet Upper and Lower since I could first order them, and this is the FIRST time I have used them! Can you believe that? When I was thinking about Beate's sketch and deciding which stamp set to go with, I was also thinking about something else that has been on my mind a lot lately. . .Savannah starting preschool. So, I combined the two thoughts and decided to use my ABC Alphabets for the first time! This is how the sketch ended up sideways. . .it wouldn't fit the other way! :)
Savannah, as most of you know, is my oldest so this is the first time I'm experiencing sending a child off to school. I know it's only 2 days a week, but I'm still nervous! She's never really been away from me. I'm not so nervous about how she'll do in school because she's SO excited and I'm sure she'll adjust instantly. I'm nervous about her severe peanut allergy. Those of you who have never had to deal with food allergies probably have no idea the worry that a parent goes through. I have no idea what another child might try to "share" with her when I'm not there to tell her it might contain peanuts. We've always carried an Epi-Pen for her, but have never had to use it and I pray we never will! Anyway, school starts September 6 for her and I thought this card would make a nice piece of the scrapbook pages I intend to make for her first day of school.
So head on over to Beate's blog and give the sketch a try! It's another great one!
