Default F4A234...The world is your oyster...(8/15/2014)

F4A234

It is once again the beginning of another school year for many of us/our children/our grandchildren, etc. So, what are you going to make of it? What are you going to learn and improve on? What will you change? The world is your oyster! You don't have to be going to school to start something new!

Today's challenge....
Get inspired by this phrase...

"The World is Your Oyster!"

Will we see worlds and maps in this gallery? Or pearls and bling? The choice is yours! (And, if you are starting a new chapter in life, let us know about it so we can cheer you on!)


Change the World Example

I just made a collage for my dad's 80th birthday featuring his world travels. Perfect fit for the challenge!

Interesting Challenge and as an added bonus I finally inked up the Ray of Sunshine stamp set. Thanks for the challenge.

I took your theme literally and went with it...no sea stamps to promote, no teacher friends to encourage(they have all long retired)...so maybe a card for a graduate who is going out into the "real" world for the first time.

Heart F4A234 Awesomeness

Dedicated to my wonderful family- we are all together for a few days!!! I sewed some "turtle" material to some black and white material for my background- and added a turquoise card for a background. Added some washi tape. My goal is to share the extra papers and stamps with my friends and their kids. Here's Awesomeness

Finally got my card uploaded. I decided to go outside the box on this challenge...and go with something totally unrelated to oysters or beaches or water...
