Write On! -- BLD Inspiration

Hi there!!
Hope you have enjoyed your weekend!!
I found out on Saturday from a school email that my 2nd grader was going to 
be taking her first ever standardized tests on Tuesday and I wanted to make her something to lift her spirits.
I was looking and looking through all of my BLD images for just the right school girl.
I finally found her when I went through my "Bug & Roo" folder of digis!!
Whenever I think of standardized testing, I think of #2 pencils!! LOL
So... this image and paper was just what I was looking for!!

If you haven't taken a peek at Bug & Roo stamps, you really need to!!
They are unique and fresh and my favorite part is that they were drawn by Lori's daughter when she was a young girl!! At home, my budding artists have a special place in my heart and so do these super presh stamps!!
Can you believe that she drew 45 different adorable digis??!  Talk about talent!!

Here are a few of my faves:

                                             Charleston  $3.00                  I Heart Art $3.00

Stella $3.00

Please don't forget to go and peek at all of the wonderful designs that the ladies of BLD have for you today!!
They are featuring some fun summer favorites and also the new Halloween images!!
You won't want to miss the cuteness!!
