Bellarific Friday is Back to School!

Well my kids are back in school, they started this past Monday. I can't believe I have a Senior and a Sophomore in High School! I am feeling my age coming on. 
I am starting to worry about empty nest syndrome already, several years away! But times flies so fast, and before I know it, both my kids will have graduated and moved out, and I feel like crying. I'm not ready, stop time! I need more time! 
And I'm getting way ahead of myself, I know, lol. All because of Bellarific Friday and our Back to School challenge. hmmph!
Here's a cute little project a teenage girl might like for Back to School. I got one of these little spiral notebooks from Michael's dollar bins and simply embellished them with some pretty papers and this adorable Perry has a Laptop image. 

I paper pieced the the big comfy chair with a nice plaid paper from a new Bo Bunny pad. Beautiful rich autumn colors perfect for school time. The rest of the image was colored with my Copics and some colored pencils.

I added a couple of funky file tabs I got from the Silhouette store to the notebook pages for dividers. The notebook paper border is a cut file from the Silhouette store too. 

I hope you'll join us in our challenge, head on over to the Stamping Bella blog for all the details on how you can enter your card for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

  1. I really know what you mean!! My oldest son has just turned 23 and started his own compagny as graphic designer.... it seems not that long ago I held him in my arms for the first time. ;-)
    Good thing he still lives at home just like his brothers (19 and 15) because I too don't want to think about the time they will go their own way.
    Your notebooks are adorable! The paperpieced chair looks great!! Did you add the shade on the chair with copics?
    hugs, Jolanda
