S2G Challenge #69 Twist Notebook Paper

Hello Everyone,
Happy Friday the 13th. hope this finds all doing well.  As promissed I've used S2G images for this week's challenge.  Boy have I used them. This is Collin & he goes back to school on the 17th.  He loves school & is a bit of a bookworm.  So sometimes it's kind of hard to find a digi or stamp that really fits him.  Ethan & Stella as you have seen have toooooo many that fit them.  Any way my Mom's Birthday is in a few weeks & I  had cards made for her from Ethan & Stella but  having the hardest time with one from Collin.  All the "Bookworm" digis or stamps have the child wearing glasses so that was not a fit for Collin.  So while the orig. card I was working on for this challenge was to be for Collin on his first day at a new school.
I had the inside done with a note wishing him good luck. Then while using his school picture from last year for lining up placement for photo corners for the picture that I am sure that my Mom will get of him either getting on or off the buss.  The light came on that this would make the perfect Birthday card from him to my Mom.  So I had to do a little rework on the inside.

Also I have to give a BIG Thank You to Miss. Georgia of the S2G DT. The sample card she did for this week's challenge gave me the ideal for this card.  So now that I have yet again managed to produce a small novel I will get to the details. Thank You for visiting. Have a good Friday the 13th. & enjoy your weekend!
