Sugar Creek hollow.....

Afternoon peeps, hope you are well, I'm off now for a couple of weeks .....yay, my son has finished uni after taking his Masters degree as a 3d Artist, just hoping he can get a job now, but before that we are off to Italy for a holiday, its been a difficult few months and I'm just needing some time out.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow, the theme this week is Vintage School Days, how times have changed, I just love the beautiful handwriting that was taught then. I remember having to use a pen that you dipped in ink ......I also remember getting told off for getting a splodge of ink on my page.
I used an image from the Grapics fairy which I coloured in, the papers are from Prima Almanac. I made the frame by using the wooden stirrers courtesy of Costa Coffee, I covered them with paper and inked the edges.
