10/22 New Challenge at Bugaboo Stamps

In college, our team was the Wildcats. I know this thanks to GOOGLE! Sadly - since I know and care little about sports I couldn't say what our team name was! Thing is - our college didn't have a NCAA ranked team, we didn't even *have* a football team! My alma mater started as a small business school, but is better know as a world famous culinary school - Johnson & Wales University. But since I live in North Carolina, I figure I could also say that Duke University shares our colors - Blue and White!

This weeks Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge is another fun one!! This week our projects are 'Homecoming' themed! So, like my project below, this week we challenge you to create something using your old school colors! For more challenge info, head over to the BUG BLOG! We can't wait to see what you create!
