Designer Thursday~ Cathryn

Good Morning, this is Cathryn from In The Pink.  Today it's my turn to Host the Designer's Challenge!  I know a lot of the children have already gone back to school but my kids are not back for another 3 weeks!  I will MISS them so much!  Which got me thinking about something I would like to surprise them with when they are at school.
I decided my CHALLENGE would be:

Make a card or 3d project for Back to School. A little something encouraging to slip in a back pack, lunch bag or brief case (if you have no one going back to school!)
I made a little package to cover some hilarious sticky note flags and some pencils.

I used the Vintage Stitched Label die to make the note pack.  I scored where the tag would wrap around and I attached an eyelet to each side.  I wrapped the pencils in a little bit of patterned paper and attached them to the back with a small pop dot.  Then I ran some twine through the eyelets and tied a bow on top of the pencils. 

My Supplies:
All Around Everything Stamp Set,
All Around Everything Accessories Stamp Set,
Vintage Label dies  -  My Creative Time
Sticky Flag Pack  -  Marshalls
My Girl 6x6 Paper Pad  -  My Minds Eye
Pink and Yellow Hemp  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Yellow and Diamond Stickles
Picked Raspberry and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks
Copic Markers

I hope you enjoyed my project for today.  I would LOVE for you to play along with the challenge!  Now here's what Emma and the Design Team has done for you!
