An apple a day, keeps the homework away!

The most common question on the first day of school is "Do we have homework today?" In my own class, the answer to this one is always "Does today end in 'y'?" The kids often argue as to whether or not I am talking about the word "today" or if I am talking about the actual day of the week, be it "Monday" or "Tuesday" or...well, you get the idea. I LOVE IT!
Like all children, London here is hoping that there won't be any homework on the first day of school! She's packed her new school supplies in a stylish backpack, decked herself out head to toe in her new favorite outfit, and she come prepared to bribe the homework away with an apple!

For today's Preview, Day 2 card, I used the following Mojo Monday Challenege Sketch!

"School London" is just one of the six NEW My Kids' Emo World-School Edition digital stamps to be released this Sunday! I recommend avoiding any and all school work by heading over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to check out the shenanigans that the other Emo Kids are up to! ;)

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the official release of the line, and a BLOG HOP full of fun, inspiration, and of course...PRIZES!
Hugs and HOOTS,
