BACK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGES AT CSS!

WOW...this week is flying by! Monday was a holiday here for us, so we didn't have school! We wanted to hit the beach, but the rain sent us to the movies and we saw the hilarious "Rush Hour 3"!!! LOVE the Rush Hours!!! Other than school and karate, I've been cleaning out cabinets and trashing the trash and everything else is in a huge box for Care Help - a local goodwill type place in our town!

Now the scrappy stuff! CSS IS HAVING A BACK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGE MONTH! The DT at CSS has teamed up and we are now "teachers" giving our "students" assignments to complete! You should really check it out because it is a wealth of inspiration and so many ladies have already jumped on board and are completely those assignments! Here's a link that takes you to the master list of all the challenges: http://www.creativescrapshack.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6417 Please register if you are not yet a member (say hello and I sent ya!), then sign in on the "sign in" thread and let us know you are playing....then....GET SCRAPPING!!!! I'd love to see some of my new friends I've made through this blog of mine to join in the fun! It's a great community with NO DRAMA and totally fun! OH!!! My assignment is the Home Economics class and it's all about hand sewing....NO RUBONS AND NO MACHINES!!! Here is my LO I made for my example:



This LO is near and dear to my heart as it is of my grandpa's swing that he made out of a bus seat that he'd removed when he bought a school bus and converted it to a camper when I was wayyyyy younger! I spent many days swinging with him or alone on here and now that both my grandparents are gone, I had to snap that picture before the house was sold. Now I can look at this LO for the rest of my life and just smile thinking of them! TFL!

The other exciting news: my first DT kit for CSS arrived yesterday and I am so excited! The entire kit was designed by Senior DT members Tam and Terrie, and let me tell you they did a great job!
