DYSU Challenge #87

Morning All,
Our theme for this week's challenge over at Do You Stack Up? is "BACK TO SCHOOL" so we are looking forward to seeing all your school related creations.

and we have three fabulous sponsors this week..........

Can You Digi It - $10 Gift Certificate

Melonheadz - $15 Gift Certificate

My Heart Pieces - Winner's Choice of 3 Digis

I got to play with this cute schoolboy image from Melonheadz this week and decided to make a Sticky Note Matchbook. The image has been cut out and mounted on the front of the matchbook with foam pads for some dimension. The schoolhouse and books are a couple of buttons that I have had lying around for ages - knew they would come in handy one day!!  

This is the inside of the matchbook showing the gorgeous orange sticky notes.  If you would like to try your hand at one of these, there is a brilliant tutorial over on the All That Scraps Blog HERE.  It was really simple to make and I was very pleased with the end result.

Medium - Promarkers
Paper - MME Kraft Funday Happy Days
Everything else - stash

I am sure a lot of you have children going back to school very soon and this is the perfect excuse to make them something to wish them luck. Do take a look at what the rest of the brilliant DYSU team have created and leave them some love.  Thank you so much for looking.
Happy Crafting
Denise xx

Hi Denise

Love this little sticky note holder .. .. especially the number backing paper,measure and your cute image.

I'm a bit worried about the Scrabble pieces though if they are real ones .. .. there are never enough vowels in the game as it is without these five missing LOL!!!

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx
