Teaser Time - Emma with her Backpack!

ACK!! Seriously - how cute is little Miss Emma?? Love her! My daughter starts Kindergarten in September so this set is near and dear to my heart. I decided to create a little ensemble with a mini backpack for today's teaser!
For my card, I used a layout from the Dare to Get Dirty challenges and paired it with some PTI and My Mind's Eye patterned papers. I used some yummy MFT cork to mimic a bulletin board and the Die-Namics Open Scallop border as well as some of that ruffly ribbon.
I left my brad sticking out of the sentiment so it would look like a push pin!

I tucked a little note in the front pocket of the backpack and send some kind of treat in the main compartment on my daughter's first day of school.

Ready for some TOP-SECRET news? Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win one of the Brand Spankin' New stamp sets being released on August 4th.
