And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Student Survival

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Even though I'm not heading back to school this year, school is still very much on my mind.  All of the retired elementary teachers from my school district get together for breakfast on the first day of school, and this year I got to join without the pressure!  That being's my turn to share a project over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and so naturally I have a school project for you.  September is the time for back to school cards and projects and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some fabulous stamp sets and digi images just perfect for those projects.  Now that many students are back into the school routine, they may be needing a little student survival.

Creative Nugget:  Here is everybody's favorite teddy, Rhubarb, with a student survival kit packed with items every student needs to make it through another year!  The "Back to School Rhubarb" digi was colored with copic markers, cut out, and popped onto the cello bag topper layered with Echo Park DP.  The tag was made by cutting a Spellbinders label die in red, white, and blue and then pieced together.  The lettering on the tag was made with a JustRite stamper and the cute little apple is a digi image called "Apple of My Eye."

On the back of the topper is an explanation of why each item is in the survival kit.  (Click on the picture for a better view.)  The little "Back 2 School Pencil Holder" digi is also available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  Survival kits are a cute gift idea that can be taylor made to let a special person know that you are thinking about them.  Check out Sawyers Specialties for other suggestions for survival kits or come up with your own ideas.  Then have fun putting your own kit together! Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful Wednesday!
