Today we have a Chemistry lesson scheduled ;) This was my other challenge from the Back 2 School Crop at SSC. The "assignment was to use the Period Table of Elements pictured below, pick one element and use the letters of its symbol to create a formula for your layout, card or project.
He = Helium
The letter H = "Happy Birthday" sentiment
The letter e = Elegant style
Zr = Zirconium
The letter Z = Zoo theme
The letter r = Rhinoceros
Your letters can stand for colors, themes, sentiments, products, manufacturers, techniques, actions, things...truthfully just about anything! See how we went from hard to super easy?

My sample, "Merci":
For our class sample I tried to choose something hard so that you can see it only looks hard, but it truly isn't. I have done a compound, NaCl, Sodium Chloride, also know as Table Salt.
My formula is:
N = Nature...the tree branch and overall card theme
a = Animal....bird stamp
C = Cording...I used some twine cording to make a nest
l = Leaves...I used patterned paper with leaves on it
