Let's Go Back To School

It's Terrifically Thrilling Thursday at Shelly's Images, which means challenge time!

As our followers know, we are starting to change the way challenges and featured images work at Shelly's Images. Our featured images and challenge posts will now be incorporated into one post, on a single day, rather than spread out over two days in the week. Some of the challenge themes and featured images were already set, before the decision was made to combine them. So, for a brief period of time, the featured images may not match the challenge theme. Please bear with us while we ease into this adjustment. Everything is starting to come together and we're thrilled with the new format!

Now that I have that out of the way, let me tell you about the new challenge at Shelly's Images! August is almost half over and the schools are gearing up to start back, so what a perfectly fitting challenge team we have for you this week!

Back To School!

Come over to Shelly's Images and show us your back to school projects! You may be our Top hat winner or even land yourself one of our Gold, Silver or Bronze medals, for playing along!

I'm the lucky one to have created the eye candy for you today, for our weekly challenge. My card uses back to this new school paper. I added sparkle to the flourish on the paper with my clearstar gelly roll pen. The black and white polkda dotted brads are from my stash. The images (apple and pencil) and sentiment are from the Kidz Korner at Shelly's Images. The Kidz Korner section are all freebies and the images were drawn by Shelly's daughter, Taylor. If you haven't ever checked out Kidz Korner, be sure you do! Taylor has drawn some cute cute images and they're all free!
