Die Cuttin Divas Challenge

Good morning!  We have another challenge at Die Cuttin Divas this week!  We want to see projects using your current or favorite school's colors!  This was tough for me, one because our current school is an elementary school and I don't think they have 'colors' yet!  and second because I never had a favorite school.  I went to private engineering school, not a big university.  SO I chose Michigan State since I have a friend who LOVES and went to state so I made her a birthday card!
I think she turned out so cute!  I decided just to make her shirt green instead of putting a big white S on it!  Don't over think this challenge too much!  We just want you to play along!  So link up HERE!

Die Cuttin Divas Sketch Challenge

Not only is today Tuesday but it's our FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!  All 3 kids in school full time!  Hopefully I can get tons of crafting done now!!!  Summers are so hard for me!  So anyway, today marks another Die Cuttin Divas challenge.  This week we have a sketch challenge with a twist!  The twist is a back to school theme, and of course you MUST use a die cut somewhere on your project. 
Here is the sketch:
 and my first day of school layout:
This is from September of last year.  My littlest's first day of preschool.  This at least makes me feel not so far behind!  It's a pretty simple layout but cute and to the point!
