Simon Says Challenge

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey blog candy ! To enter all you have to do is click here !

It was great to see so many of you joining us in our Christmas challenge last week and just think, you have at least one thing made already for this year !!

This week's challenge is more in keeping with the time of year - it's Back to School.

The DP's are scrummy October Afternoon "Cherry Hill"

The images are of course Tilda and the school desk. These have been coloured with Prisma's. Both the apple and Tilda's shoes have been covered with glossy accents.

Tilda is available to purchase in the Simon Says Stamp store just here Heidi has in stock a huge range of Magnolia stamps and some of the more unusual ones too.

The "blackboard" I made myself and wrote out the alphabet and numbers with a white Inkssentials pen.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The label was computer generated and the epoxy brad is a BasicGrey "Wassail" brad.

Heidi is very generously offering a $25 P&P free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp store.

Please pop over and have a look at the DT's creations, they are very inspiring.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this week's challenge !
