CAS Challenge Fall DT Search (2010)

Pencils for the Teacher (Recipe at the end)

Back to High School

Students need to register... not really, but ya know what I mean... post your excitement in this thread and go have fun stamping!
You can find the official thread with more information at SplitcoastStampers!

You will pick up the most awaited news that could make or brake your year! (You know that everything is so hormonal and dramatic.) You are getting your class schedules! And oh no! It's you! You are one of the lucky students to be in Mrs. Fraction's math class! OK. Don't panic. You just need a plan.

Challenge #1 - Teacher's Pet

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, August 24 @ noon EDT

2 Part Challenge

1. Use one or more punches on your card.
(Be careful to keep it CAS... that's the challenge part. Punches can be addicting.)
2. Teacher's Pet theme... and I leave it wide open for interpretation.

I don't remember making samples for these searches, but I guess I got excited because I'm a teacher.

There will be three challenges as we narrow down the "class". At the end we will have a
Pep Rally!
(Date to be determined soon. It will be either Wednesday, Sept. 1 or Thursday, Sept. 2)

Coffee for the Teacher (Recipe below)

Pencils for the Teacher
I chose an image of pencils because my middle school students are constantly losing their pencils! My most treasured gifts from parents are pencils and Kleenex! LOL!

*All CS and punches from Stampin' Up!
(poppy parade, concord crush, round tab punch layered)
*Stamp - company unknown
*Offray ribbon
*Copic markers

Coffee for the Teacher
Although I'm not a coffee drinker, many of my colleagues are addicted to it. I do like the smell though!

*Colored cardstock - Stampin' Up early espresso
*Copic markers
*whisper white taffeta ribbon - Stampin' Up!
