Happy August - how about some FREE downloadable bookplates?

Wow, that was fast. How did July escape us so quickly? Well, hopefully it was a fun July and as we enjoy the Olympics and the end of our summer vacation, we're getting ready (as slowly as possible) for back-to-school. Our kids start on 8/16..which seems incredibly early but I've heard of some going back even sooner! So, to celebrate the kids...the ladies at www.welovetoillustrate.com have all created some wonderful downloadable stickers and bookplates. I always have fun with these challenges and this year got a chuckle out of my little apple bus....



wishing all of you a happy August - and here's to the kids! ~ Shirley

  1. Hi Shirley, everything happens, and everything comes, vacation leave and the school time comes, and when you open and close your eyes, your children are in college, and marrying, I speak from experience :))))))
    OK If I were a child who should put stikers in their books or notebooks, I would choose all!!! but especially that of the two mice. is the one I like!

  11. Oh my gosh! The teeny cat and dog reading partners! I love them. And the rhino and the teeny bird. Super, super insanely cute. Really Shirley, I've long ago run out of new ways to describe the super cuteness around here. Oh, and the teeny seahorses. Beautiful and charming and great!

  16. Hi Shirley -- thank you for your visit! Time does fly, doesn't it? I can't believe it's August either! Spring and summer are my favorite seasons and this year I got extra company: first my parents and then my younger nephew came up from Rio for a few weeks, just lovely...
    These bookplates are so charming. Like Elizabeth, my favorite is also the one of the little mice carrying the book and pencil. Soooo cute! Hope you've been well too, my friend! Enjoy the rest of the summer!
