BBTB2 - Back to School

This is my second post of the day, for the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl
Back to School,click here.
The wonderful Brenda over at BBTB2  has given us a
Back to School cricut challenge.
Here is my card...
I used Wild Card 2 for the note book card, cut at 4.5".
The sentiment and scallop stitched circle is from My Creative Time.
My son starts senior school next week and his tie is maroon
and crafty stash didn't have that colour ribbon so I made it
pink and brown instead!
I have to say we are so very proud of Ossian,he won the highest award he
could get at the end of last term - The Clanfield Star award.
Only given to one pupil at the end of their junior school years.
All his mates and teachers signed his t-shirt!
Also..sorry ,one last thing...
He started playing golf at Easter  and he won the
 Golf Club Junior Championship on Saturday.
He's 11 years old.
I think I ought to start scrapbooking!!
Thank you for indulging me a proud Mum moment!
Now,back to the challenge.There's lots of  inspiration from the amazing
Design Team over at BBTB2.
As you know I am on the DT for FCCB  and BBTB2. They both are cricut challenge blogs and this week they have the same challenge,so do enter both.
There is blog candy on my FCCB post as it is a blog hop. So do check it out.
If the winner of my blog candy has submitted a project at both FCCB and BBTB2 then I will add an
extra surprise to their candy! Leave me a comment on this post so I know.
Just a reminder..BBTB2 is now a weekly challenge.
Looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations.
