Well Fall is definitely in the air!
I actually like these crisp days,  no humidity,  but i dread what is coming.

.....and fall means back to school,  my last child left for college three weeks ago and out of 4 kids he was the worst.  I miss him so much.

Back to School is the challenge at The Stamping Boutique,  head over to the blog to see the awesome creations by the design team.

I actually created a Fry Treat Box.  And I used the Back to School Apple Core,  this will also be an awesome embellishment for those apple photos we all take!

Fry Box is from Stamin Up.  Image colored with copics,  and I shredded red paper for my filler.  You can put treats inside or markers, crayons, pencils, etc.  Quite gift for back to school.
