Monday Challenge - It's Back to School!

Hi all!

Joy and I have the blog this week and we are gearing up for back to school. Whether school just started or is about to start, we have all sorts of inspiration planned, even for those sans children.

Let's start with this week's challenge.

In honor of back to school, let's break out those school supplies.

The challenge this week is to create a layout, card, or altered project that includes:

the color red (you know, inspired by that apple for the teacher).
staples
journaling spot (in honor of note taking)
stars (for a job well done!)

You have until Saturday at midnight for this challenge.

On Sunday we'll draw a name for a $5 gift certificate to the Studio Calico store. Sound good?

Link your projects to this thread for consideration! Get to work! :)

Cool challenge Dav! Never considered using the red on the layout I used, but it worked! Here's my layout-although it isn't a back to school picture, it does celebrate the last days of summer before school began! http://tinyurl.com/lv5ocu
