Back to School & a New IAR Challenge!

It's the "most wonderful time of the year" for parents..... time to get ready to send the kiddos back to school and to work on those fun back-to-school themed crafty projects.

To celebrate this fun time of year, I Am Roses is hosting a new challenge for August. So be sure to enter your back-to-school themed projects for a chance to win a prize! The challenge this month is to use yellow toned flowers in your project. To see the specific details of the challenge and how to enter, visit the I Am Roses Challenge Blog, by clicking here:

The design team members for I Am Roses, including myself, designed some projects to share with you for inspiration. I do not have kids but to make the challenge interesting, fun and personal for me, I joined a swap over at Your Paper Pantry hosted by Alease to create some vintage back-to-school postcards. I love creating postcards, so I am super excited to participate in Alease's swap.

For my postcards, I used the Graphic 45 ABC Primer collection and the gorgeous new vintage yellow toned daisies from IAR. I also have a burgundy red rose (1 inch), several super tiny yellow rose buds (they're so cute!) and mini hydrangea petals sprayed with red rocks and sunflower colored mists.

I hope the ladies who receive my cards enjoy them. I cannot wait to see the postcards I get in the swap. Swaps are so much fun!!! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to visit the I Am Roses challenge blog for the contest details and to check out photos of the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G creations of all the design team members from I Am Roses.
