Back to School Riley


School is back in full swing here. I try and go eat lunch with my nieces every couple of weeks or so, something that we all enjoy. I am planning to go this Friday and thought I would tuck this card in Samantha's bento bag. It's just a little card to wish her the best this school year. She absolutely loves Riley so when I make her any type of card I almost always use a Riley image. It's funny that those are the images we both learned to use Copics on! She has a small collection of Ciaos, and started that collection with the colors she uses to color Riley images. All the papers are DCWV.

Last year I was looking for different ideas of lunches to pack for myself since I am not a big fan of a daily sandwich and discovered bento boxes. I showed them to Samantha and since she is not a fan of sandwiches either she loved the concept. I bought her a proper bento box so when I eat with her at school I always bring her one. It is kind of fun to surprise her with them. Mine are not as elaborate as a lot that we see online but she is happy with them.

Have a great day!

This is the cutest, Gina! I love the primary colours you used for this card. I've been seeing a lot of those bento box lunch ideas and they look amazing! One more year and I'll be preparing them for my son. ;)
