Yay!!! I just LOVEEE Bellarific Fridays... partly because I totally crave to use my Stamping Bella stamps, AND it's SO neat to see what everyone else has done with them too!! So today's theme was Back to School!! Hmmmmm, well you all know I don't have any little ones but that don't matter none, I can still play like I do!! LOL!! My sistah Babe, Joanne thought it might be nice to use the Green Bean Baby line as part of our Back to School theme, so I decided to ink up Betty the Bookworm. That's me for sure!! She's just the cutest thing! I used this DP from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday collection because I thought this pink notebook paper was perfect for my school theme. I stamped Betty onto some SU Very Vanilla cardstock and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out with my circle Nesties and matted her with some burgundy cardstock from my paper stash that I cut out with my scalloped Nesties. I matted a striped sheet from the collection with the SU Very Vanilla and then again with the burgundy and stitched around the edges. I used my SU scalloped border punch along the top edge and adhered to the card base with a few dimensionals. I stitched around the edges of the bottom DP as well and tied on this pretty burgundy grosgrain ribbon. Also in the collection, was a sheet with just alphabets, so I cut out the A, B and C and matted them each with some burgundy cardstock, then adhered them to the striped DP on the bottom to complete my "Back to School" theme. Man, I'm glad it's her and not me!! ROFL!! Don't forget to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of her. Oh, and be sure to check out my fellow sistahs over at Bloggabella for more "Back to School" inspiration. Have a great Friday and a super weekend!
