The Corrosive Challenge #207 - Let's Hear It For The Boys


Labor Day weekend has arrived and left me wondering just where the heck Summer up and went to!  I can't believe tomorrow is September already!  Or that my baby boy starts Kindergarten on Tuesday!  I mean, how is that possible?  I think we are ready... Or as ready as we'll ever be.  He is excited, and I am a wreck.  Sounds about right.  lol  I'm pretty sure there will be tears (and that they will be mine).  He has asked for a strawberry pancake and bacon breakfast to kick off his big day, and I shall happily oblige.  His daddy is even joining us (bacon is hard to resist, after all).

A new Corrosive Challenge has also arrived and the theme is "Let's Hear It For The Boys".  We are sponsored by the ever adorable Meljen's Designs!  I love these darling images and find myself using them as one of my favorite go to choices more and more often.  Play along with any project created for a guy (young, old, or in between) for your chance to win 4 non colored images of choice! 


Masculine projects are not really my forte, but I knew I wanted to make Kayne a card for his first day of school.  I selected Little Chalk Board to color up with my Copics.  I then used a white gel pen to write a "chalk" message.  The Kindergarten chipboard sticker is from Recollections as are the black glitter letters I used for his name.  Papers are DCWV - Grade School stack.  I added a punched border, gingham ribbon, and a banner die (Flag Banner from La-La-Land Crafts).




Head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what other creations the team has for boys to men!  

Markers used: Copics (100, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59, G03, G05, G09, Y32, Y35, Y38, R35, R37, R39, R89).
