MFT's Creative Challenge "For the Kids"

This month's MFT design team challenge was to create a children's gift item. I had this idea to create an altered chalkboard for my kids' room to keep track of soccer games, location and time. So not only can Mommy be organized... so can the kiddos! ☺ I instantly fell in love with the Pure Innocence: I Get a Kick Out of You stamp set from last month's MFT release. The set is perfect for my little soccer players.... even though they are boys, LOL!!! (the stamp set includes a little PI girl, pic below.) I featured her on my MFT Teaser Day 3 earlier this month HERE.





I have a list of MFT products used on this project included below. Click HERE to watch a vid detailing some of the items used.

Be sure to click on over to Kim's Blog to see what creative goodness the other MFT ladies have to share with you today. By the way, click HERE to check out the MFT DT -- I {♥ HEART ♥} these ladies!!! 

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! Have a great rest of the week... I know for me, it's going to be a doozer of a week! ☹

hugsies!!
