TSG169 - Back To School

Okay, it's that time of year...I head back to school tomorrow. I have a week of training and then another week of meetings, and then I get the kiddos! So in the spirit of the season...There She Goes is having a back to school challenge.

This week our challenge is brought to us by Our Trendsetters! We are challenging you to make a card or project with a Back To School theme! 

For my card I used Believe In You...this set is close to my heart as it was my pitch to Jessica when I found her company. I love this set...I love it so much that I tend to hoard it because I don't want the image to get "whatever"! Now is that silly or what? I love the school house. It's a great image to welcome everyone back to school. I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #47. Aren't these colors just so festive? 


To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using the back to school theme, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (August 20th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG169 so we can check out your beautiful work!

I totally get not wanting to 'overuse' the image - it's like getting new school supplies. You want it to feel good when it's that time of year :) I love the fun layout - those flags! - and the great papers. I got my hands on that pad in time for teacher thank yous, and I love it!
