BELLI Challenge #32 - BACK TO SCHOOL

What is the Belli Challenge you ask?
I copied the following from Chris' blog - she is the creator of the BELLI Challenges.

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is BACK TO SCHOOL!! You can embellish anything with any of your BACK TO SCHOOL things.

Here is what you need to do...Make a completed project embellishing your work with ANY BACK TO SCHOOL THEME. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC32. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC32 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link! I will do a random drawing for all participants and have a special pack of assorted Designer Papers for the winner! (Be sure to post on Chris' blog to be included in the drawing - you can find her blog here.)

Be sure to check out what everyone else has made and make a comment too for them please! We all LOVE comments. It is fun to see what everyone is thinking about what we are creating! :)

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to upload and share your Art with us! We love to see it! Have a fabulous day!

The above sampling are puzzle pieces. My 4yr old's first day of preschool is today. So, in preparation for helping her learn her alphabet better - I made the puzzle pieces. They are grouped into 3 for a couple reasons - the Cuttlebug template comes this way :), it will be easier to teach the letters without having to focus on too many at once, and I felt adding more images would get too confusing.

I made this box to put the puzzle pieces in. I got the template from Nichole Heady's blog . It was super quick and easy to do. I stamped the lid with a couple letters and images to represent those letters.

That's all I have for now. Hope you enjoyed my take on the BELLI Challenge. Be sure to check

Welcome to the design team. I love your idea with the puzzle and the box to store them in. I have some of the blank puzzles I could do that too.
