Kickin' it OLD SKOOL style with TGF!...

That's right!  Have you heard?  TGF is goin' OLD SCHOOL!  In honor of Back to School time, we thought we'd do a traditional "Back to School" challenge until we decided, why not go OLD SKOOL?

So here's the deal.  Head on over to the TGF Blog for details, but we are kickin' it OLD SCHOOL!

In order to be considered truly OLD SCHOOL, it's easier to limit the stamps to what you cannot use vs. what you can:  You CANNOT use:

*Wild Sprouts
*Cheeky Cherry collection
*Oliver/Amelia Stamps
*Creepers or Creepy Cakes
*Any Anya AFTER the release of WILD WEST ANYA (Spring/Summer 09)
*Any Ian AFTER the releases of SKATER IAN (Spring 09)
*Miss Anyas/My Guy Ians
*Any Critter Crew images
*Grandparents/Darling Sisters

Just think OLD SCHOOL.  Older the better :)  Like this "Panda Friends" set for instance, that has since LONG retired.  I couldn't wait to bust this out and used this week's SCS Sketch to complete this fun card:

This contest will be opened for a few weeks.  The winner of this contest will be crowned OLD SCHOOL CHAMP and receive the ENTIRE October release along with an old, smelly pair of Converse All-Stars aka Chuck Taylors!! (ok, KIDDING on the latter prize!)

A runner up will ALSO win a 4x6 set of their choice!  This will be a random contest, but hey, why not a runner up too?  :)

The contest winner will be announced on Monday, September September 27th during a October Preview post.   That's a lot of time, so get busy and get OLD SCHOOL!   You have until Sunday, Sept 26th at 8pm CST to enter your card....and be sure to check out the TGF Blog for details!

Thanks and see you tomorrow!
