Allsorts challenge week 379 - New beginnings

Hello there, and welcome to a new challenge here at Allsorts.
Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Boutique


Tracy has chosen the theme of New Beginnings, so quite a wide scope there for all of you.

I am quite delighted that this theme has been chosen at this time as my eldest Grandson, Ethan, starts on Monday afternoon, just for the new pupils, then a full day Tuesday at his new School - Big School as it was always called at one time.

So here is my card for Ethan.

The image may be a tad younger than he is and the sentiment( computer generated) may be a little difficult to read ..
but it says...
You are beginning a new chapter in your life,
Enjoy your new school, Ethan.
Hope I don't forget to give it him on Sunday.

The stack of books and the boy image are from Bugaboo.
The papers I have had for quite some time and have lost the front page.

Looking forward to seeing the entries for this lovely challenge.
