Freshly Sharpened Pencils

Call me weird, but I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils almost as much as I love the smell of a new of paper pack from CTMH.  Am I the only one out there that does?   Okay maybe I am, but nothing reminds me more of Back to School than a row a freshly sharpened pencils.  For this week's Back to School Challenge at Heart 2 Heart, I paper pieced a row of pencils, using Sunflower, Creme Brulee, Grey Wool and Blush Card Stock.  I added Outdoor Denim B&T Paper, Cranberry Cardstock and added accent apples to give it some color. 
The cover and sketch from Card Ideas for Paper Crafters  that I ran across at http://www.moxiefabworld.com/ inspired me to create my "pencil" card. 

Happy Back to School!!!

Love it! Wish I had the patience for a card like that!
P.S. I also love the smell of pencils, and paper, and books and all things stationary so you're not alone!

Perfectly paper pieced pencils! And I love your sentiment--every child needs to feel and experience that!
