Miss Garcia

Hello everyone! Today is the release of a brand new digi image set by the fabulous LORi Boyd for Claudia & Company! This one is called Sugar Stick Teacher Set. This cutie teacher image comes with several accessories, three of which you see in my card.

My sweet friend Alicia Garcia is a teacher, so I couldn't resist personalizing this card for her. I used Photoshop Elements to color in the chalkboard, and then set the text color to white to write her name on the board. Of course, who uses chalkboards anymore? I think they have gone the way of the dodo bird in favor of white boards and smart boards. Too bad because I LOVED writing on chalkboards when I was a child. In fact, I wanted to be a teacher just so I could write on a chalkboard. The one and only time I ever got sent to the principal's office was because I kept writing on the chalkboard when the teacher told me to stop! LOL!!!

Anyway, this is just such a fun set... I know you'll love it, too!

The DP and cardstock stickers are from the Report Card collection by October Afternoon. I also played with Card Patterns Sketch 77.

Please be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the Claudia & Company Design Team have come up with using this cute set!

Mary Giles
Sheri Gilson
Tracy Clemente
and LORi Boyd herself!

Have a great day!

P.S. Don't forget... there's still time to play in the Claudia & Company challenge!
