Back To School / Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Back to School / Fall Blog Hop". First I would like to thank Sylvia for putting this wonderful Blog Hop together. If you arrived here from Sandy S blog you are on the right track. If you are a regular follower of my blog and just popped in to say hi, please go to the start by clicking HERE so you can see the entire hop from the beginning.



For the hop today I decided to make a two page layout for my youngest grandsons first day of school. I will keep the writing short since I have so many pictures to share. If you have any questions just email me or leave it in the comments and I will get back to you.


Kindergarten tag and First Day of School tag were both cut from Locker Talk Cricut Cartridge.


The ABC tag was cut from Recess Cricut Cartridge.


The School House was cut from Recess Cricut Cartridge.


The Pencil Guy and Big Red (the apple) are SVG File that I purchased from
My Scrap Chick.



The Crayons are really journal tags that were purchased from Michael's. They can be opened up and you can leave little hidden message inside them. They also came with envelopes so you could write little message and send them to school in your kids lunch kits, but I like using them on my layout for tags.



Here we have another hidden tag which I made and then used my computer to print my grandson name, date and school on. I used pop up dots for dimension and two different colours of gel pen to do the faux stitching. I added some apple brads , some cute metal embellishments I found in my stash and some ribbon for the final touches.


Before I forget! I do have blog candy today for one lucky follower, please leave a comment and a way to get in touch with you just in case you are the lucky winner . I will draw the winner for the blog candy on Tuesday.

Blog Candy includes: 20 sheets of 6X6 paper



Paper Bliss accents

Grade School Glitter pop-up embellishments

10 Things I Love About School Pocket

Mini Lunch Box Messages

Metal Rimmed Stickers

Pewter Embellishments

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you have enjoyed everything you saw so far, now it is time to send you off to the amazing Anita.

I will also be entering this layout in the following challenges:




Fantabulous Cricut: Back to School: Use ABC's or 123's on your project




Whimsical Wednesday: Scrapping School Memories with a twist! Use a clipboard element in your layout, which I added clipboard behind my Kindergarten sign to give it extra dimension.
