Doodle Dragon Studios and the Box Tops Lady

Yahoo! School's back in session! Remember when I said I would be using Doodle Dragon Studios as the Box Tops Lady? Here's the proof! Dustin Pike released this cute bear licking his ice cream right before school let out. I knew I had to use it for my summer Box Tops contest! I found this huge, adorable 53" bear at Costco. One random lucky student who turns in a completed Box Tops collection sheet will win him! Then one student from each grade will win a $10 gift certificate to a delicious ice cream treatery. Here is the poster that is placed around the school (11x17 paper). And bear image is on the Box Tops collection sheet. Dustin does it again!!!! Perfect DDS image for the contest!

I'm soooo excited for September 2nd when the huge bear is awarded!

P.S. Not only is this bear tall, but he's extremely huggable! He wears a size 3X shirt.

MIA, but far from MIA

Okay, I've been MIA here on my blog, but I've been far from MIA preparing for the new school year. This year I am the PTA Leadership VP and the Ongoing Fundraising Coordinator (which means I will be aka the Box Tops Lady (my favorite!) and over Campbell's Labels for Education, My Coke Rewards, Give 'em Five program, ink/toner/cell phone recycling, store cards, Tyson Project A+ and Chick-Fil-A Nights. I personally love Ongoing Fundraising! There's something about beating previous year's earnings that I enjoy.

I took last year off from the Ongoing Fundraising Coordinator PTA position because I had a full time job at Provo Craft, a big church calling, three kids who are heavily involved and a husband who travels. This year things have lightened job (this is a good thing), now I am the Eagle Scout Advancement Specialist in our ward (we have 60 young men in our Troop/Team/Crew), my son went off to college (missing him and my Friday Nights watching him under the football lights), my daughters are involved and my husband still travels the world. I can breathe better this year!

Whew...that was more than you wanted to read! As the PTA Leadership VP, I was in charge of decorations for our Back to School Night. I must confess I was a little sad when the PTA President said she wanted to have a Dr. Seuss theme this year. I usually make all sorts of fun things from Dustin's Doodle Dragon Studios images. But not this year, no fear though...I'll use DDS as the Box Tops Lady. Anyway, here's Thing 1 & Thing 2 that I enlarged and paper pieced together. They are almost 4" tall! I also made a huge Cat in the Hat and Fox in Socks, but I didn't get a picture of them. Originally Thing 2 was on the opposite wall with the Volunteer Table that night, but I moved him to the glass once it was over. Get it? Thing 1 - join PTA. Thing 2 - volunteer your time!
