A School Sneak Peek

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a low key weekend and enjoyed it even though is was cold not ready for the really cold weather. Seriously, I cannot handle low temps anymore...I feel like I am freezing already and we are only in the upper 50's to low 60's! Even in the house I am feeling cold, so I go to check the thermostat because I am convinced that our ancient furnace has finally kicked it...and low and behold it is at the temp it is suppose to be! I swear it is because of I see how my Mom has gotten to be where she will just about wear a sweater in 70 degree weather!

Anyway, you aren't here to hear about my aging woes (or maybe you are and are just laughing at me!) you are here to see what is coming this month from Paper Makeup Stamps! It is once again another great release (how does Katie do it?!) and this school girl fairy is just one of the cute stuff being released. Hint, hint...there is a school boy fairy too! I chose to use the Verve Stamps World Card Making Day Sketch Challenge #3 for my layout. I had bought the cool orangy-red pattern paper awhile back and had yet to break into it, so I broke it out here.

Since it was a school fairy, I stamped her on some notebook paper from the Basics White Basic Grey paper pad and just colored her in with markers...I know totally old-school and not very professional, but I thought it the girl was drawn and colored on a notebook page by a kid that was suppose to be listening in class. I had to layer some colors on her hair to get it to match nicely with the paper (Ruby Red with a little Pumpkin Pie on top). Finished it off with some dyed ribbon and the "Way 2 Go" tag from the Little Moments set by Paper Makeup Stamps.

So would you like a chance to win this stamp or one of the others being shown today? Head on over to the PMS Blog, check out what the other designers came up with, and then leave a comment there! The winners will be announced at the PMS Release Party in the PMS Forum on October 7 starting at 9 pm EST...oh and check out this POST to win even more stamps!!
