Inspiration Team Challenge 08/06 & A Freebie Digi-Paper

Melanie, at Scrappily Ever After, has been a new theme for the month of August - Back to School -  and today is the day for a photo challenge! The team of gals she put together to help inspire others to create cards for Operation Write Home has some amazing submissions for you, so be sure to check out Melanie's blog! 
For today's challenge, I have made a digital card front. I plan on printing this to affix to a card that is 5" x 5" so I can send it in to Operation Write Home.
I used a digi-kit called Study Buddies, created by Lisa and Jeanne Marie from Precious Piecings and Jeanne Marie's Scraps. (You can purchase Jeanne Marie's other digi-kits at While I did not use my own digi-paper on this card, I have created one for you to go along with today's challenge photo! You can pick it up at the bottom of this post. :)
I do not have any elementary school age kids: my son is going to be a senior in high school this year. Wow.....where has the time gone! I am recently unemployed, and am looking forward to being able to attend all of the school functions this year! I usually make it to most of them, but now I will be able to visit, even during the week (for those new to my blog, my son goes to a private school, several hours away from home, so visits include overnight stays close to campus). What about you? Are your kids just starting school, or are they "seasoned scholars"?
I hope you like my digi-card, and don't forget to head over to Melanie's blog to see the other team members creations!

And now, for what you've all been waiting for......
