After all the Halloween goodness at The Greeting Farm, I am so in the mood for Fall! Did you get your digis?
"TGF is goin' OLD SCHOOL!  In honor of Back to School time, we thought we'd do a traditional "Back to School" challenge until Jess and Marie decided, why not go OLD SCHOOL?

I dug through my stash looking for this cutie, it is one of my absolute favorites and is an early one (maybe the first?) from the Hope and Grace line.   I think the flowers are from the same set. She looked like she belonged in a farmers field next to some fall flowers. 

If you want to play along here is the deal....

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

If you have specific questions, you can email Jessica at   Just think OLD SCHOOL.  Older the better :)

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 our first 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.
Have a super weekend!
