Back to School with Basic Grey!

Hiya peeps, well my boyo (welsh guess just ...) can you believe I just had to check on google for a translation, and that was a pile of poop! one person says it means mate or friend! Nooooot!!!!!!! another said actual welsh people don't say it, only English people taking the p**s say it Nooooot!!!! and another said it just means boy. Hmmmm close; I think it is one of those words that doesn't really have any literal translation like Cwtch! (no don't ask!!!) To me boyo does mean boy but it is kinda more.... like it's an affectionate way to say naughty or mischievous boy! (btw I am very Welsh and proud of it, but also proud to live in Scotland!) So where was I ..... Oh yes my boyo has been back in school for 2 weeks now!! But I know a lot of my English .. and Welsh friends are getting ready for the back to school chaos now! So that leads nicely (yeah right.. no one ever accused me of being  concise!! Lol!!) To this fortnights challenge over at Basic Grey Challenge!  which is:
Back to School!!
Not to sure about this one, Mojo has gone a bit iffy again and ended up rushing my design team projects this week! Hope you notice that Tilda is holding the pencils that she used on the word search?! Well the green and blue ones, she has already put away her red pencil!! (yes I am aware I am rambling now!!! Lol!!) the papers are basic grey hopscotch, the die cut frame is spellbinders, flowers are from WOC and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch!
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Simon Says Stamp - Back to school
lovely hanglar - punches or dies
papertake weekly - flower power
well that's all today, maybe if your very unlucky I will try to translate Cwtch for you another time!! Lol!! See you tomorrow for another fabby challenge from simply Magnolia challenge!
