Back to School

Here is an image I shook the dust off , I last used her on a project on 24th August last year, so she was well and truly dusty. 

She is so absolutly perfect for those Back to school projects
I have attached her to a little apple shaped carton, ideal for all those little bits on your desk.
The apple was cut on my portrait.
The image is from The Paper Shelter 
and is called
Learning is Fun 
You can find her here

I have coloured her in Graphic Markers
