Challenge #14: Back to School!!

Hello Users!

Did I just hear a bunch of people squeal when they read our topic this week? ;) My kids are so happy to be back in school, homework and all. (OK, that was a white lie, they are happy only for the social aspect. And the 1st grader got in trouble for talking on the first day back. ROTFL!!)

So, this week please make a project that has something to do with SCHOOL!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday 2 Sept. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE014 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Jane had help from a little boy on this darling card! Can you believe her son stamped those images?! She used a ton of hoarded supplies to whip this up, including the stamp set she last used for birthday invitations years ago! We give it an A+!

Nancy is still in denial of the pending 'alarm clock' which will arrive in 3 short weeks! She did a great job on this darling card...look how she used that embossed background that was sitting in a drawer...and that hoarded paper! Great work!! We give it a 10!

Sonya literally dusted off the Locker Talk cartridge for this one! Nice! I think mine are dusty too! Anyway, she also used a rub on from 2007 and cut into paper that was in jeopardy of being hoarded because it is SO CUTE. We love it!

Dinah gets 100% for using 3 different brands of hoarded paper together! I think I need to pay for her to come to my house! I have this very problem!! What a cute little student, too. :)

made a darling tag that looks like a blackboard! And check out that little ink bottle...she had that set aside for ages and it was perfect for this challenge! How cute would this be for a bookmark? 5 gold stars for France!

used a ton of CM papers and embellishments! She paired things from a few years ago with a few new creations...that were hand cut! She used a die cut from CM, traced it and then used it again and again. Genius!

Yup, and I actually have a contribution this week. :) My sweet little girl (who was uninked), DCWV papers that are hoarded...and really old SU ribbon I got from eBay in say 2004??

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
