College Days Challenge

A few weeks ago my dad took us all to a CAL Berkeley football game. It was a big deal because it was the first time the kids have had a chance to go to a college campus and get the idea about what that means. My dad went to Berkeley and played football there, so he was very excited to take the boys around to various buildings and departments and explain what goes on in each.
Then we made out way to the campus center where the band was warming up for the game. That was AWESOME! The kids were mesmerized (note to self...get them in music lessons ASAP). Then we walked up to the stadium where they had some pre-game stuff going on. We ate hot dogs and then shuffled in for the game. All in all it was a perfect day!
It got me to thinking that we should do a College Challenge. Since this is sort of Homecoming time...I think this is the perfect time to recollect your own college days, a family history at a certain college, your children's "dream school" list. There are various ways to work this challenge, so have fun with it!!
This is going to run from today through Oct. 23rd. Please be sure to add your link here so we can find it and add it to the slide show! :)
Here are the DT examples:






Also...the new November kit is now up for pre-order!! I am calling this one Mill Street. I will begin shipping these today, so grab yours ASAP before they go! :)

Brookfield Zoo....

This is the last week to enter your page for the awesome Adobe LightRoom prize! (Adobe Lightroom 2.0. With an MSRP of $299!!!) You just need to use 5 unique NoelMignon kit items, other than patterned paper. Paper does not count. So you can use letters, stickers, vintage items, ribbons, brads...etc. And you must have at least 5 items per entry. You can enter as many projects as you like! All work must be made for this challenge.
You have until October 9th to get your LO done! Just leave a comment so we can find you!

I pulled out all of Noel's past kits to scrap these photos of our day at Brookfield Zoo. I took some inspiration from my daughter's floppy hat. The paper is from the Getaway Kit, as well as the clear arrow, yellow anchor, and pink fuzzy brad. I used a clear circle for our family pic and stitched it down with some embroidery floss. This is from the Rise & Shine kit. The yellow brads and heart rub on are from the Rise & Shine kit too! I pulled out some pink ribbon from the Picnic Basket kit. I love being able to use various bits & pieces on my LO's!

Hope you can play along for this AWESOME prize!!!
