Dueling Darlings August Challenge

The Darlings are at it again.  The Duel this month was hostessed by Terry, for the Dazzlers and LJ for the Divas.  The Dazzlers received a great kit from Terry!  Our theme for this month and the kit contents were:

"Fall Kick-off"

LJ suggested to put together kits with a fall kick-off theme.....not specifically football, but anything that would start the fall season. I chose to put together a school themed kit for you all to work with, I hope you all enjoy it!

In your blog post, please share with us a favorite memory of the fall season!

Your kits include:

Image: Stampabilities: House Mouse "Smarty Pants" stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Recollections: "Back to School" paper pack
Bakers Twine: Target dollar spot
Candi Dots: Craftwork's
Ribbon: Michaels

Here's my creation:

And I even did a little on the inside!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and check out all the Dueling Darlings creations!

Deb, your card is adorable!!! I love the way you used so many of the wonderful papers and embellishments that Terry sent... and even did a little something inside your card. I also think it's fun that you and I did similar things with the candi dots. ;)

Oh my Debbie! I just love your layout - it makes such a great use of the fun papers. The way that you used the twine and Candi Dots, & spotlighting the apple like that is perfect.

Great job this round!
