Twisted Thursday-Use Letter!

Hello! The Twisted Thursday challenge this week is to use letters on your project. This is another darling image from the Shirley's 2 Girls back to school release. I don't even have kids to get ready for school, no teacher gifts to make or anything, but I have had a ball with these new images. I do have a couple of friends that are teachers and I have learned from them that keeping pencils around can be pretty difficult. So that inspired my pencil box idea. I started with a plain wooden box from Michael's and painted it black. I punched out letters from thin chipboard to make my letters for the challenge using the Sizzix Twang alphabet. I printed off my image after sizing it to fit the box. Here is a close up of the image:
I colored my image using Copic markers and then used some yellow paper as a background. My cute little pencil also came from the do-it-yourself wood section at Michael's--I didn't paint it, it came that way! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's creations!

Also, if you are free tonight, Shirley's 2 Girls will be hosting Digi Day on SNR tonight from 5:00-6:00 (PST). We will be showcasing "tailgating recipes". Join us if you can.

Want another free S2G image to play with? Join our group on Paper Craft Planet and you will find a free image on the group page. We are also doing a challenge using the free image for a chance to win even more images!
