My project for today features Flower Soft's Charlie's Ark rubber stamp, In the Air!  I stamped this cute little guy directly onto a piece of Webster's Pages designer paper (everything except the boy and his diploma are part of the 6 x 6 print), colored him with Copic markers, and accented the page with "typewriter key" letters and chipboard numbers to go along with the schoolhouse theme.  The striped paper strips and square corners framing the design give the page the look of an old-fashioned calico quilt block, especially with some machine stitching along the page's edges.  

This would make a nice framable kindergarten graduation keepsake with a pocket underneath to stash certificates, report cards and other sentimentals, or it could be used as part of a two-page spread with pictures commemorating the school year.  

Visit the rest of our team for more inspiration using stamps from Flower Soft!  If you're hopping, you should be on your way to Cibele's!  And if you're lost...here's the entire list!
