The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Good Morning All!

It's time for another FUNtabulous challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Before I share today's challenge and card, I wanted to remind you that you still have a couple of days left to put your name in to become our STEP SISTER  ... you can see all the details HERE.  

Now onto today's challenge . . . which is:


Yep, it's that time of year again and I know some schools are ALREADY in session!  Yikes ... when I was a kid we NEVER started the school year until after Labor Day Weekend.  
But ... times have changed!

Looks like this little guy is fascinated with this book ... hmmm, wonder what it's about??
Maybe he's wanting to be an engineer and is sharpening his math skills ...
Or maybe a rocket scientist ... that would be cool ...
Nah ... I bet it has something to do with SUPER HEROS!!!  LOL!

My crafting order from Joan's Gardens arrived recently and this awesome Cheery Lynn Designs Step Card die was in that order.  I just HAD to use it for today's creation!  So easy and I just love the WOW factor this card has!

Papers:  White cs, Red cs, Yellow cs, Graphic45 'An ABC Primer', Recollections 'school bus'
Stamps:  Jellypark digi image (boy on books), Graphic45 'An ABC Primer' stamp set (ruler & apple)
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Cheery Lynn Designs B348 Step Card Die, Fiskars swivel craft knife, xPressIt foam mounting tape

I hope you'll come join in our fun challenge and if you need more inspiration, my 'Sistahs' have some awesome creations to share with you.  Just CLICK HERE to check it out!
