Back to School with Simply Betty

Hello, Happy  Monday!!  

Today I am sharing my cards for this week's  new challenge over on my challenge blog
Love to Create Challenges

The team and I are so excited to share some inspiration
with images from Simply Betty Stamps !!

Yes Simply Betty Stamps is in the house !!! 

She is our 
Fabulous sponsor this week for our 

Back to School theme

Betty generously allowed each DT to chose an image to create with and I picked this 
adorable Chalkboard Ali  from the Jude and the Rockers Playtime collection 

Going with a Primary color scheme and some fun Elementary Spelling Bee design papers by Simple Stories 
I also inked up this month's new Avocado Arts Clear Stamps "You Rule" using the sweet notebook paper, crayon and one of the sentiments in the set! 
One of my designers stated she looked like Rainbow Brite, which I admit yes she does but not the feel I was going with LOL!!!

For my star holding Chalkboard Ali, I simply used Word shapes to create 
a size and shape star I wanted and then printed onto card stock and hand cut.

Of course after receiving Chalkboard Ali and loving Simply Betty's stamps I 
had to pick up this fab image as well!!

Perfect digi for one of the boys to give to their teacher!!!

To keep with a masculine touch I paired Christian Locker Mess with TPC Studio School Days Science designer paper. I created a tag which I add some stamps marks to along with a computer gernerate sentiment of Superstar -Yes that's what you are.
Christian Locker Mess also comes with the cool sentiment "I am here What More Do You Want?"
Stars were made by using Word inserts and enlarging to the size and shape I wanted

Hope I have inspired you to come join us at Love to Create Challenge, for a chance to win a fabulous prizes of a $10 Gift Certificate from our wonderful sponsor Simply Betty Stamps!
