Back to School - Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge

If you are here for the QKR Stampede Blog hop, please scroll down one post.


Today we have a brand new challenge for you at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge. First...have you heard the news yet????!!! Sweet 'n Sassy stamps is now one of the member companies on Splitcoast!!!!! How cool is that? The fun started out on Monday with the release party on the SNSS forum on SCS, there is also challenges, and more right in the SNSS forum. Be sure to check it out! Be sure to link up your SNSS projects on splitcoast too.

Now onto today's Digi challenge...Back to School! I guess in most parts of the USA, kids are starting back to school for the year. My kids don't start for a few more weeks...Sept. 7th to be exact. I will be honest...I am looking forward to it, but at the same time I am not. This is the point in the summer that sibling rivalry is at is finest, and personally I just can't take it anymore...lol. Well, today I decided to share a back to school LO I made featuring none other then RHUBARB!!!!

I just love this guy! This guy is a digi image (of course), but in case you missed it, he is now available in a clear stamp set too! Plus, his clear set is also part of the Kit of the Month for August...so check that out HERE too! Now...back to my LO...lol...I am so easily distracted. Here is the full 2 page LO I made. I started by coloring Rhubarb (back to school digi) with markers, and layered him onto a piece of the star paper. Then I layered him down in the bottom corner of the first page. All the papers for this LO are from Nikki Sivils School is Cool line. I used the banner strip along the top of page 1, and wrote "first day of class" on it. Then I used various diecuts and stickers from the paper line to embellish. As you can see there is not photos yet...but that is because school hasn't started yet...lol. I did do the journaling though...lol. Page one, the stars will hold a photo of my youngest who is off to Pre-K this year. The second page will hold photos of my other 2 girls who will be starting 1st grade and 4th grade.

Well that is all from me. Head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog, and see what other back to school creations the DT has come up with. Then play along! Be sure to link up your project so we can see.
