School's In


     Hard to believe it's almost September.  Our amazing Franz has chosen the theme of "Goodbye Summer" as hostess this week of the challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Back to school pretty much signals the end of summer so I decided to use "Harvard" for my card.  Isn't he a cutie and look at that A+ on his paper.  hee hee  While searching for a sketch to use I ran across the current one for Sketch Saturday.  I love their sketches and decided to use it for my card.


     The idea of a line of pencils popped into my head so I searched the web and found a freebie line drawing of a pencil.  I printed it out seven times and lined them across the card.  Unfortunately the majority of them is covered up, but I still think it's cute.  Here's a close up of Harvard.


Copics Used:
hair E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
clothes YG93, YG95, YG97, E08, Y26, C00, C2, C4, E21, E23, E25, E51, E53, E55, E57
books BG72, BG75, E09, E97, E99
paper W1, W3
pencils  E13, Y11, Y21, YR21, YR23, C00, C2, C4, E15


     Pop over to the DP2 blog and join us with a "Goodbye Summer" creation.  Please remember to use a Mo's image.  Don't forget we're looking for TWO Guest Designer who will get to play along with the DT for three months.  You can find the details on the DP2 blog.  You can also find a new title behind my name in the DT listing there.  Pat asked me to be the Co-coordinator for the blog and I accepted.  Basically I'll be her spare tire in times of need, but I'm glad to help.
