GOTHIC ARCHES-"Back to School"


Here's my arch for the new bi-weekly challenge of "Back to School" over at Gothic Arches. I used a Paper Whimsy image of a darling schoolgirl on my arch, and a computer printout of the cover of an old reader, as well as vintage words from a very old, tattered, children's book, some ribbon and lace, paper flowers, and antique buttons to finish. Click on this link to see all the wonderful arches created for this theme!

Wow, does this bring back memories! My mother had a McGuffey's reader in our bookcase as I grew up. This is an adorable tag. I love the blue colors and the image of the schoolgirl.
