School Humor

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening...

Has school started in your area already?  Our kids are going for their "meet the teacher/transition day" this coming Tuesday.  One will go for and hour, and the other for the afternoon.  These days always kinda make me chuckle.  The teachers meet with about 1/3 of the class for three days.  Then, after these three days, the entire class starts school together.  Now, I may be dating myself, but when I went to school we all started on the same day. None of this getting to know the teacher/student first!  You may have been called by the wrong name for the first week or so, and the seating plan changed from time to time that first week depending on various personalities...but it all worked out in the end!  LOL

You may wonder what school has to do with the new challenge over at Unstampabelles this month...let me explain!

Our challenge this month is to...

"Use Humor with the twist to Frame It"

Well, I thought "Back to School" would be the perfect theme to design around.  
I started browsing the Silhouette store and came up with some cute images, sayings, etc.  
I decided to make the design quick and easy,  I would use the print and cut setting on the Cameo to create.  

Here's how it turned out...

As I said, the entire card has been printed and cut out with my Silhouette...with the exception of the days of the week washi tape in the upper right hand corner.  Some of the files I needed to color digitally and then turn them into a print and cut version in the Silhouette studio...but it's really quite quick and easy! I've popped up the school house with 3D pop up dots to make it the frame for the humorous sentiment.  I've also popped up the little boy as well to give the illusion of him standing in front of the school.   To give the card some sparkle I've added some red Stickles to the heart in the list of reasons to love school!  

When all was finished, I had a good chuckle as I could totally see my son saying these things ont he list!  He loves school...but I do have to say that recess is one of his favorite "subjects"!  LOL
I may have to save this card and give it to his teacher sometime during the year!

Before I forget to mention, we do have a sponsor this month over at Unstampabelles.
It's our very own Susan and The Wood Fellow...aka, her hubby!
Be sure to check out the challenge blog to see the wonderful prize they are offering.  

Now before I go, let me take care of a few reminders...
You will have until September 26 at midnight to link up with us with your creation.  
Also, your creation cannot have stamping of any kind on rubber stamping, no
digital stamping, etc.  We are a "stamp free" challenge blog where we encourage you to think outside of the box and use different elements on your creations.  It's really not as hard as it sounds.  For a list of ideas, be sure to check out the "Ideas for Creations" tab on the blog.
That's all for today folks!
Can't wait to see what kind of creations you come up with!

1. I want that washi tape!
2. I want a cameo
3. I want your talent!
yep, all those things to like have been said in my hearing by small and not so small beings - and as a retired teacher, I was probably guilty of a few of them as well! Great card Tracey.
