The difference between school and life?

The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson. ~Tom Bodett

I played in one of my Altered Books and drew an owl ( inspired by yesterdays owl that was stamped). I wanted to make the page fitting Moo Mania & More ( Fall Foliage) and it is meant again for Conny's current Mix It Monthly theme which is leaves and trees.  And I thought about how to make the pages fitting BACK TO SCHOOL at AJJ ? Maybe a quote? I found a quote that I like and added it digital.
 Wishing a happy Saturday to all my visitors!

Thank you for visiting froebelsternchen today!

Your visits and comments are much appreciated!

Thank you!


  1. That owl is gorgeous. Although inspired by Valerie's stamp, this owl is ALL you. And of course, it is the wise owl, too!

    I saw that same quote on the internet and thought about using it. I;m glad I didn't because I like how you used it far better than anything I could have come up with. It's a great AJJ entry, dear Susi.

  2. Beautiful owl and quote, love the background colours, too. Have a LOVELY day, enjoy yourself. Hugs, Valerie

  3. Fantastic page, love the warm autumnal colours and that owl is drawn so well. Love it and the quote is one to remember for sure!!
