Pick up Your Pencil...

The kids have done a bit of pencil pushing already in their first few days of school.  I'm happy to report that they have been enjoying themselves and their new teachers.  
Now that they are back into routine, it's time for me to jump back into routine as well...which means I have stepped back into my design team position with Pile it On once again!
And our theme for this weeks challenge couldn't be more fitting for the kiddos going back to hitting the books.

This week we are challenging you to...

"Use a Pencil"

The possibilities are endless...color with pencils, incorporate a pencil die cut into your creation, feel free to even sketch with a pencil.  

We are welcoming back one of our wonderful sponsors...

 

...who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 digis.

I decided to go a different direction than a card for this challenge.  I fell in love with a pencil shaped box I found in the Silhouette online store and knew I wanted to work with it. I got the Cameo humming and began assembling the box.  I decided I would use the sponsor image to create a tag to attach to the gift box.  I used pencil crayons to color it...trying to stay true to our challenge theme.

Are you ready to see how it turned out?


and here's another view from a different angle...

 
...and a view of how the eraser slips off the box for you to add your special gift...


...and lastly a close up view of the tag and sponsor digi I used...


I know my daughter's teacher mentioned to them that she loves diet Coke, and I'm hoping one will slip into here perfectly.  I think it would be adorable presented in this pencil box.  I'm actually thinking I may make some of these to put on my craft table when I'm at my show in November.  I think these would make awesome teacher gifts...throw in a few erasers, pens, pencils, small sticky notes and some chocolate and you're done!

The rest is up to you my friend.  I hope after seeing this those crafty gears are churning and you're ready to do some creating.  Be sure to check out the Pile It On blog for more inspirational ideas from my fellow design team members!  You have one week to play along!

Until next time...
