Challenge #139. See you in September.

Deena here -  life in our house gets super hectic at this time of starting and dance starting (the kids dance 6 days a week), my holidays are over and we have added a new puppy in the mix...September is kind of a dreaded month in our house...but it also leads to regular routine and that is a good thing!  I took this challenge in two different directions (but all with the same pieces of paper)...the first is a multiple project with inspirational school and achievement type sentiments...the second is a classic hand drawn apple...can't get more "Septembery" than an apple harvest!

 Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.
Electra   here
I've chosen to use a photo I took of the kiddies from my stint 
at a preschool/kindergarten a few years back.
It makes me think of school whenever I look at it.
Holding hands and circling a big strong tree.
I think the quote from Robert Frost says it all.
Credits can be found on my blog.

Gini here
Both my sons cycle to school and one of them cycles past a wood with ponds in it and this is what he sees when he looks around, A little bit of Shiny style.
Click on it to make it bigger.

I've used Octopode rubber stamps aren't they great little characters?
It's a 12 x 16 inch canvas.
Close up photo's on my blog if you want to see more.

Rosemary here and I made a back to school card of encouragement with a cutout courtesy of the inchworm.

My other project consists of two ATCs with books as a running theme, because it's back to the books when school is in session. While our younger student is memorizing poems and learning science, our older student is focused on the social aspect of higher learning - school spirit and romance.

Jana here and this time a request was made of me from my oldest daughter for a new pencil pouch for her. So I obliged. Cuz I am a good mom like that. (Mostly because it involved my sewing machine and I know how to make pencil pouches. But don't tell her that.)

I have a few more details and another picture up on my blog if you are interested in seeing more.


You have until the end of Saturday 22 September to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating a back to school project. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused. 
We look forward to visiting you!
