Hi everybody! It's the second Thursday of the month, and that means it's time for a Blog Hop!! Every month I get together with some of my most talented Facebook friends (Shout out to One Stamp at a Time...OSAT in the house!!!) and we interlace our blogs with projects made using a common theme. Welcome to those of your who found me via the uber-talented Justin Krieger. This month, being that it is August and the summer is winding to an end...it's time to "celebrate" Back To School. Notice that "celebrate" was in "quotes." This year, around the Weber house, Back To School is tough. This year, our Baby starts Kindergarten. :-(
I used the First Day of School as the inspiration for my project and decided to make something for my daughter to have with her as she heads out into the real world. Here's what I came up with:
What we have here is a mini backpack (complete with straps) made from one of my favorite tools of all time: The Gift Bag Punch Board from Stampin' Up! It's extremely simple and versatile once you get the hang of it. For this project, the top "flap" opens up and inside I have stashed a little note card and some emergency chocolate kisses. Not sure who will need them more...her or me....
Well, I have to get going to get ready for the Big Day. But luckily for you, there is a ton of inspiration just waiting to be had in this hop! I am privileged to be able to pass thee hop off to my buddy Holly Stene! Can't wait to see the cute stuff she's made for us :-) Just click the "Next" button below to be transported to her world. Thanks for stopping by, and wish me luck!
