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:

  1. Her Craft Kre8tions ~
  2. Lynne ~ 
  3. Lisa W.~
  4. Rachelle~
  5. Kimberly ~ 
  6. Janet ~ 
  7. Colleen ~
  8. Susan ~
  9. Lisa ~

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://

Crafty Card Gallery Sketch Blog Hop for August

Greetings all! It is that time again. Crafty Card Gallery is having a Sketch Blog Hop. Welcome to the Sketch Blog Hop. Everyone has had so much fun doing these it's turned into a regular event!
The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! You should have arrived from Jamie's Blog and if you just happened along the hop, you can go back to the start at

Enjoy the hop!
Here is what the original sketch looked like:

And here is my take on it:

I designed this on my Gypsy and it made it so easy! I hope you will hop over to Crafty Card Gallery's blog to see what the others have made :) Please hop on over to the last stop: Tonia. Until next time....
