Shelly's Images Challenge

YEAH!!  It's time once again for a new challenge at SHELLY'S IMAGES!

Today's challenge is a COLOR CHALLENGE using this delicious color palette.

and we are featuring TWO NEW images which are available at the Shelly's Images Store.  


As you will see when you pop over to our challenge blog, some of the team created with just one image or the other and some created using both.  I chose to use both.  By using WORD software, I have positioned the backpack at Beary's side while he 'works on his homework'!  LOL  

AND ... in case you didn't realize it, I have created a 'Pencil Box' (do they still have those things??  or am I showing my age???) out of a recycled empty Cricut cartridge box which teammate Stephanie so graciously sent me (thanks again Steph!).  I have paired Shelly's Images with stamps from the Graphic45 'An ABC Primer' set.

Here is a close up which shows how I have popped up Beary.  You can also get a better view of my 'homemade' ruler.  I stamped the ruler image onto yellow paper, cut it out, then adhered it to two layers of chipboard which was actually the back of a tablet.  

And here's a peek at the inside.  You could add crayons, pencils, glue, etc. as I have here ... OR you could even add a 'snack'  as a surprise for that little pre-schooler.

Well, that's it for me today!
Please be sure to pop over and check out the inspirational pieces my team mates have created to share with you and then join in the fun!  Remember YOU could win a $6 Gift Voucher for Shelly's Images by playing along!
