It's time to get schooled!

And this little girl is the one to do it!

I cut her using Cricut Design Space's free images this week.  I used lots of scraps and inked the edges with Quick Quotes Midnight Confession.  I believe the dotted paper is SEI.

 I made a second card with a Cricut cut from Create a Friend.  I was looking for just the perfect paper to mat the image and I could not find anything in my stash.  I did find an old set of Creative Memories stickers (I used one here) with writing paper but it wasn't quite right for my project.  So I made my own!  I used the reverse side of the EP blue paper with Prisma pencils and a straight edge to lightly mark lines in blue and red to mimic writing paper.  I just love how it turned out. 

Here is a detail picture of the background I created.
