Simon Says Back to School :-) + hidden candy :-)

As you know I have been on holiday for ther last 3 weeks so I haven't been around to visit your blogs but i will pop by in the next few days :-)

This week on the Simon Says Chellenge we have a Back to School Challenge :-) The DT have made some lovely creations for you to see so pop on over to the challenge blog to see them and don't forget to leave a comment too :-) We really do appreciate them :-) Also some may have hidden candy ,,,, so don't miss it !! :-)

While I was in London I called in the Paperchase shop and bought the pencil box which I thought would be perfect for this challenge :-)
I used some definitions paper which I tore and inked with Vintage Photo and Black soot Distress ink. The text around the top is from a fab Melissa Frances transfer set.

The notebook was made using some mountboard from my friendly frame shop ( he gives his excess bits to me for free !! :-))I covered this using the same definition paper and distressed too. I stamped various Tim Holtz Stampers anonymnous images onto the paper,, birds etc,,, . The 'Imagination' text was stamped onto a separate piece of card and inked with distress inks and sprinkled with distress EP too :-) I then used Vintage Photo crackle paint 'dolloped' around the edges ;-) When dry I sponged with black soot ink too.

The flower is Prima which I inked too and I used a Tim Holtz foliage flower in the center, the butterfly is a grungeboard die cut that I embossed with the cuttlebug script folder and inked ,,, I used a Tim Holtz ornate frame with a Melissa Frances vintage rub on text 'Dream' :-)

The mesh is something i have had for ages and is by Magenta :-)

With the exception of the mesh and paper,, everything I have used on this project is from the Simon Says Stamp Site :-)

Sorry that this is a long post ,,, I must have bored you to tears by now :-)

I will be offerring a set of Tim Holtz Ideaology ORNATE PLATES Book Hardware Frame Label as my weekly blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Store :-) Please see a separate post at the top of my blog for details of how to win !
