Simon Says 'Back To School'

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing MY MIND'S EYE PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Teal is my favorite colour and I love the papers in this pack! I think I am going to have to get another one of these! 

I love this  Blueprints 17 Die set from My Favorite Things, just perfect for all things 'Back to School'! I used Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder, as suggested by Tim Holtz as being the best powder for creating a chalkboard effect, I have to agree with him ;-) he is GOOD didn't he!! ;-)

This is the inside

I wanted to make a more girly version too and I was going to do 'B' for Ball but then I already had this super cute pupster out on my desk and went with 'D'. When I showed it to my hubby, he just laughed and said who are you going to give that to. he thought it was a Donkey!! LOL I suppose he does have a point haha :-)

This is the inside
