CAS-ual Fridays #68

Hello, dear friends! September is just around the corner, it's "back to school" time  (boohoo)! This week's CAS-ual Friday is to create back to school-themed CAS projects.
you rock
I combined stamps set from Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn and SRM Stickers for this design. I think it's perfect for encouraging someone for going back to school ( it could be an adult or a child).  Please link up your CAS project by noon, Thursday Sept. 6 (Eastern Time) to CAS-ual Fridays.
We also have a super talented DT member joining the team. Do check out the post here!

And yes, I am back from my two-week long vacation (found my waistline had grown so much from consuming the never-ending cruise food!!). I am still catching up with e-mails, blogging and tons of laundry. AND last but not least, ....my baby 18-year old David is off to college after the Labor Day weekend!! Oh my, where did the time go? Even though he is living in the residence that is not far from our house, it will be a change for us all. We jokingly said that he will have to learn to be independent and stay in campus as long as he could and that we may even change our door locks for that purpose (LOL)!!

So this card is for David: "You Rock!"
