My First Creative Design Team Post for Lacy Sunshine

Hiya Crafty Friends, how are you all today? Well I have some good news, this is my first creation and post for Lacy Sunshine as part of their Creative Design Team - Wow I still can't believe it!

So here goes - The theme I have chosen is 'Back to School' and quite fitting as the summer holidays are now over in Scotland and all our kids are back at School. For this I am using the gorgeous and very apt Lupita, who is dreaming of what she got up to on her sunny summer holidays and her return back to school!
Instead of doing a card, I decided to create something different but in keeping with the theme, so came up with the idea of a notebook and pencil.
