Going Back to School......NOT!!!!


The Crazy4Challenges team was asked to create BACK TO SCHOOL cards/projects.....anything related to that topic.  Well, in years past, as a middle school teacher, this time of year was very hectic, full of excitement AND anxiety.......would this be a GREAT year or one of those that were uber-challenging.  HOWEVER, now, after 35 years with middle schoolers) it is a calm time, as I am RETIRED.........actually this school year will begin my 8th year of retirement.  Time has just flown by.......

This card was an easy-peasy one, as the only stamping was the sentiment....actually a b'day one from MFT.....but one I though was also perfect for back to school.  The rest of the card was made from designer paper with a school theme.  CAS for sure.

To those of you who are educators, I wish you a new school year with responsible, enthusiastic, and fun students, cooperative and caring parents, and an administration with ethics and expectations that support you in your classroom/endeavors.

I can't wait to see the back to school projects by the rest of this fabulous team.  Be sure to check out the Crazies Blog.

Darling card Joanne! I am so looking forward to retirement. As we get older time seems to move even faster, so I know it will be here before I know it!

Joanne, this is a great back-to-school card. I'm sure you enjoyed those years as an educator but it must be great to now have free time and let someone take over.
