Back to School at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning everyone! What a week I have had with the back to school excitement already.  On Monday I registered my oldest Tristan for High School.  All day I kept going how the heck did this happen...LOL.  For the last three days I have been on the phone and in at the school trying to fix his schedule so he won't go crazy from the work load and neither will we.  He had English, Science, Social and Math in the first semester and then Biology 20 in the second semester along with Foods, Mechanics, Fabrication, Calm and Phys. Ed.  Well I can finally say HOPEFULLY that we have it fixed with managing now not to take correspondence for a few courses and that he has two core courses in each semester. YAHOOOOOO!! The volleyball schedule he has is insane and we just started tryoutS! I still don't know what my other two are doing this year for extra curricular activities. It is going to be a great year.  Still have to do a little back to school shopping for my middle son then I am done.  Robin and Kaitlyn will have their first day at the new school on Tuesday.  Let the fun begin... :)  Still not sure where summer went but onwards and upwards they say....not sure who said that...LOL.

Today at 4 Crafty Chicks we have a new challenge.  It is our Crazy Egg challenge and we also have a fabulous prize for a lucky winner that is drawn by  Lori is putting up the wonderful prize this month.  Thanks Lori.

Challenge #105 this week is BACK TO SCHOOL!

My fabulous partners in crafting have created some truly awesome designs.  Be sure to check them out.  Also make sure to stop by Ann's blog as this is her last challenge for us this month.  Her inspiration knows no bounds and is truly amazing.

Here is my clean and simple card.  The stamp is Tart & Tangy by Stampin Up.  The paper is whisper white and real red.  Markers: garden green, chocolate chip and real red.  Two circle punches and scallop punch made by Stampin Up.  I didn't have much in my stash but I thought the apples would work good.

An update on my blanket by the time morning comes, I should be done crocheting it and then I just need to sew in way too many ends...LOL.  I am proud to finally finish a craft I started many years ago.  Now to finish a few others...LOL.  Thanks Lori for the dare it sure did help!!  Picture to follow after I get the ends sewn in.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  We love seeing what you all share with us each week.  Can't wait to stop by and say hi!!
