Fusion Challenge - Sept 3 - Back to School

Well, here it is September already - and we're so glad to be back with the Fusion Challenge - did you miss us over the summer??!!  Here's our challenge for the next two weeks:
I couldn't get my head around the sketch this week -  so I went with the photo inspiration - the school and blackboard theme in particular!
I made my own little canvas using the Mini Canvas Die from Lil Inker Designs.  I die cut it out of woodgrain paper from Amuse.  I embossed the sentiment from Paint Your Canvas with white embossing powder on chalkboard contact paper.  I removed the backing and adhered it to the canvas.  I left the little flecks of powder around the sentiment to make it look like chalk dust.  (i.e. I didn't use my embossing buddy!)
I stamped a sentiment from Desk Top Design from PTI on a piece of lined paper card from Amuse that I punched with my Spiral punch from SU (boy, I haven't used that in years!)  The apple and heart are from the same Desk Top Design set.  I also used the coordinating dies for the apple and the pencil cup.
The pencil cup holds pencils and a pair of scissors - too cute, right??!!
I placed my blackboard canvas on this cute little wooden easel - also available from Lil' Inker Designs.

So welcome back to FUSION!!! We hope you will join us - you will find lots of inspiration from my talented Teamies over at the Fusion Blog!  Can't wait to see how YOU are inspired!!
