School days are here again

Hello, hello!

Did you know that sneak peeks for the August stamps start up on the All That Scraps blog today? Yep, we've got a whole new crew of fun characters ready to make themselves at home on your fall cards and creations. :)

My card today features a little guy that you haven't met yet... this is Bauregard and he is Beatrice's brother. How cute is he? Bauregard is anxious to start his first day of school and I bet he'll be top of his class. :)
The layout design was pretty standard and simple for me as I'm still in a bit of a time crunch but the papers made all the difference in the world. This older Off to School paper pad from Fancy Pants gave me a quick and easy background for Bauregard that I couldn't resist, especially considering that great pencil border that was on it. Talk about a perfect match!

Bauregard isn't the only back to school cutie in the spotlight today so I highly recommend heading over to the ATS blog to check them all out and get signed up for a chance at winning some new rubber! Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
