An apple for the teacher
Does the trick
If you havenít done
Your arithmetic.


Well, as a retired teacher, I can tell you that no apple makes up for neglected homework! However, I used images of apples frequently in my classroom-- bulletin boards, calendar die cuts, newsletter clipart.

Now, outside the classroom, apples are everywhere. Itís apple season. Fresh apples in the farmersí markets! Itís just not autumn without cider and applesauce, still warm and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Apple pie, warmed up, a la mode.

My challenge is for you to make a card or project using APPLES as your inspiration! They can be stamps of apple images, cards shaped like apples, apple dp, anything that is apple inspired!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday September 24th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, SEP12VSNI, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure itís seen.

The Witch Doctor

A witch doctor kept the members of this tribe in virtual subjugation by means of powerful magic. Whenever one of the tribesmen tried to overthrow him, he would be turned into an apple! One night a group of tribesmen sneaked into his hut, opened his book of magic, learned the apple spell, and turned the witch doctor into an apple!

But the book warned that if the apple ever dried out and changed significantly in weight, it would turn back into the witch doctor, more powerful than ever! So every day the tribesmen placed the apple on a scale to make sure that its weight remained the same.

Moral: A weigh a day keeps the doctor an apple.

Good friends and similarly addicted paper crafters come to my house on occasion for paper tricks. Last Sunday, 9 or ten (I lost count...) tricksters assembled for chips, dip, and tips with tools, toys and tricks. I left my back to school stuff out and offered them a chance to try out the apples challenge. Here's Viki's effort:

tessaduck 09-22-2012 11:14 AM

Hello, hello. Anybody out there?

If I don't hear from someone soon, I'll start posting pics of my apple collection.

Okay, here goes. Be warned, as a retired teacher, I've had my share of apple gifties. This one opens up to a fun little scene.

That is wonderful story, pun. Laughed right out loud.

It does seem quiet here today! I'm getting pretty burned out and am not sure how many more challenges I'll get done today or leave for tomorrow or Monday! I only made 2 last night and so far today I'm made 7. That's a lot of cards!

meerkat3 09-22-2012 11:28 AM

Fastest card in vsn. I slapped an old Apple computer sticker on a card base. It came with my Apple IIe in the early 80's. Time to cull my stash?

Pace yourself, and have fun with it. Ha! This from an admitted OCD vsn freak...

Elementary and middle school, Brenda. By the way, your sample (not the apple sticker, but it did make me laugh) is so well done. The coloring is great.

This one came with a candle in it. I replaced the candle with something practical. One can never have too many crayons!

Thanks! Copic certification pays off... Sort of.

I started with middle school. Fourth grade was my favorite, though, and I was fortunate enough to have that assignment for most of my career.

It sure is apple season! I remember visiting family in Michigan and going to a place where they make all things apples (including cider) and it was pretty cool (and smelled yummy!)

Thanks for the challenge and evoking that memory, Brenda!

For me, it's the ride up to Julian, CA, in Septembers, late 70's. There were SO many orchards, then, and each one had a cider press in operation. COLD, fresh cider!

Depends on what kind of wax it is... Animal product, uh, yeah, you wanna toss that. :rolleyes: synthetic - nope!

It's probably synthetic. I'm ready to burn the candle out, anyway. I love the container. I could use it to stow bling for paper crafting...

I think this'll be the last of the collection to show off, as Angie's challenge has been live for awhile. I'll go hang out in the new threads. Have fun, everyone!

My real estate agent gave this soup bowl when we closed on this property.
