Doodle Pantry - School Birdie

If you have kids, I'll bet you are counting down the days until school starts again like I am!  Some of you lucky gals have kids that start on August 13.  I have to wait a week later until my sweet girl starts the 4th grade.  Don't get me wrong - I love my child - but don't you find it difficult to "entertain" your child all summer long?!  I did my best by requiring her to read and work on math on the computer for 30 minutes each, but that left a lot of hours in the day which she spent playing a computer video game called Spore.  So, I'm looking forward to someone else doing a better job of challenging my child all day every day!!!  LOL

Why all the talk about school?  Because I've got an adorable school image from Doodle Pantry called School Birdie on my card today!  And, to ease the pain of those last few weeks with your child(ren) in the house all day, Laurie is offering a digi grab bag of school-related images that are marked 30% off until August 15 - what a great deal!

Hurry over to the blog to collect your free image and the chance to enter into two Doodle Pantry challenges this month.  This is the last month Laurie will be giving you a free image BEFORE you play the challenge - so don't miss out!  You can play along until August 24, but the free image will only be available until August 15.
