Krafty Peeks - Back to School Mattie

Welcome back to Day 3 of Krafty Peeks for the July Kraftin' Kimmie release.  Today we are showing you 3 new Cheryl Alger images and this is Back to School Mattie.  But since my kids have only been out of school for a couple weeks now, we'll just refer to him as Mattie.  I love the expression on Mattie's face!  I coloured him with copics, and paired him with some Basic Grey Oxford papers.  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch for the layout and added some twine and cork for embellishment.  


Don't forget to check out the Challenge blog for links to all the Krafty Girls and Guests sharing peeks today.  Also, one lucky commenter will win all three of Cheryl's images, so be sure to leave comments along the way!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll see you back here tomorrow with another Peek (it's Moonlight Whispers tomorrow!).

Wow, Wow, Wow!! Love your card! Where to begin?? The notebook punch, the lovely top note shape on top pf the scallop circle, the plaid paper (I love plaid), and the twine over the scallop circle border punch. It's wonderful :)

Cute and inspiring both message and design-wise. Love your colouring and the card layout. I particularly like that plaid paper - plaid is my favourite colour!

Kerry love how the plaid worked out with the polka dot background paper. I would never have guessed you had a cork border there! Fab!
