School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hickory stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate"I love you, so"
When we were a couple of kids

The three Rs, a widely used abbreviation for the basic elements of a primary school curriculum: reading, ’riting (writing), and ’rithmetic (arithmetic) which is what the theme is for this month's Her Craft Kre8tions challenge!

Each Design Team member has received a piece of chalkboard paper approximately 6 x 6-inches. Now, where the challenge lies, is Design Team member is to create a "school" type theme whether it be a class lesson or something that their beau or them could have written on their slate. We're going to see how creative this piece of chalkboard paper can be made into with their "School Lesson" of "readin', 'ritin' and 'rithmatic.

We have a great line-up of super creative talent along with our Design Team Page:

I decided to make a scrapbook page to commemorate my youngest son's entrance into High School. I cannot imagine where the time has gone. I made the page using Cricut Craft Room and the My World cartridge that was free to play with. I also used my Winnie the Pooh cartridge for the chalkboard frame. I wish the pic was better. One chalkboard says, "Welcome to the Class of 2016" and the other "Welcome Freshman 2012". Here is my page:

There will be some super blog candy for one lucky winner that posts on each post along the way including the Design Team blog. Please make sure you stop by http://
