Just Us Girls #203 Photo Inspiration

This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is a Photo Challenge.  This was a hard one.  I don't have any school related stamps, so had to improvise a little.  I found this very busy scrapbook paper that I've had for a hundred years.  I dusted off my Cricut and made a red apple with a cartridge called Country Life.  I added a little tag after stamping "for you" and tied it with some doodle twine.  I used the Spellbinders Office Supplies die to make the yellow paper and scored it with my Scor-Buddy.  I stamped my greeting on a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die and sponged with Red Hot ink.  I used pop dots on the yellow paper, the apple and the greeting.
