Crazy 4 Challenges 103-Back to School-Locker Talk!

Hi everyone and happy Saturday.

It's a new month so it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess to you which is Barbara Anders. Barb has some wonderful challenges in store for us in the coming weeks.

To get things started let's do a Back To School themed card. Anything about back to school works!

I decided to do something a little different this week. Although I LOVE to design cards, I want to expand my horizons a wee bit with more altered projects and Scrapbook Layouts. So, I created this magnetic backed altered tin for a School Locker. You could put all sorts of neat "Stuff" in it, such as money, hair clips or little bits and bobs. I picked up this tin a gazillion years ago and thought it was about time to dust it off and do something with it. I used nestie Die Cuts Scalloped Circles and Large Circles to cover the front of the tin.I ran the Kraft Paper Circle through a Sizzix notebook embossing folder.  Stamps are from the {Stamps} of Life-
all4stars and boxes4abc. I added a touch of floral ribbon and embellished that with a star button that I coloured with my Touch Twin Marker- (Y34-Yellow). This was a fun project to complete and although I'm sure that Jon won't be likely to hang it in his locker, I'm sure he can find a girlfriend that would, given that I created it in his School colours.

If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C103. Don't forget to go back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

You should see what the other crazies have been up to this week-gorgeous stuff!!!
