Hi everyone! It's time for another Paper Players sketch, and Claire is our hostess today! If any of you know Claire, she used to be a teacher, so this is quite apropos for her as well as this time of the year!! And I am willing to bet that her students LOVED her--she has the perfect personality to teach those little ones!
I was pretty excited about this challenge too, because it gave me a chance to break out my new set, Check You Out! It's perfect for the challenge! I paired it with some school-themed papers from a few years back:
I started with the sketch from Try Stampin On Tuesday:
My bottom mat was some computer paper I stamped with the Writing Notes stamp in Balmy Blue and diecut with a Stitched Shapes square; the other elements were simply stamped in primary colors and fussy-cut:
The sentiment was punched out with a circle punch and backed with a scalloped circle mat. On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Seaside Notions, which has a really nice variety, the heart from the Check You Out set, and a pencil from It Starts With Art, stamped in Crumb Cake and colored with SU markers:
Cassidy will be nine in a couple of weeks, and will start fourth grade at a new-to-her school closer to home, so I will not be getting her on and off the bus any longer. Although it's sad for me, because I won't see her as much, I know it will be good for her. So this will be for her on her first day school; she loves getting mail, and hopefully she'll enjoy opening it!
SO....what will you create for this challenge? I hope you'll check out all the DT samples on the PP blog, or you can check them out here:
Then share yours with us too! Thanks for popping in today!
Then putting it into a nylon stocking and squeezing it along the leg, watching what oozed out, (which represented the intestines and how your body gets its nutrients):
Her partner was a boy from karate, so they already knew each other....but it was interesting hearing all the comments, especially from the boys (as you can imagine!). Next week she will be attending an animal science camp at the University of Delaware, so that should be fun as well! Can't wait to hear what she has to say about that! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
