Back To School Blog Hop!!!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to are Back To School Blog Hop!!We are so Happy you could join us.You should have arrived here from Jovan   http://www.cardsbyjovan.com/  If your just stopping by to say Hi and would like to play along,you can start at the beginning by clicking on Jovan's link. Jovan is also having a  Back to School challenge on her blog.
This year Back to School is special because it is my daughters last year of elementry school, next year she moves on to High School. Aparently in Canada our school year starts a little later than in the U.S.,we start the first week of Sept.and goes to the end of June, so we still have a little holiday time left.My children are always excited to start school so they can see all the friends they have not seen all summer and meet some new friends.

For this hop we all made  Back To School projects,I made a LO page with pictures of last years back to school.
I used cardstock from Me & My Big Ideas "Specialty cardstock".For the text I used "Celebrate with Flourish" cartridge and for the other cuts I used "Hello Kitty" and "Create a Critter" cartridges and also PK face.




This project  my Daughter and I made it together,we used Simply Charmed cartridge.It has a lot of fun school supplies on it! I also used some Peachy Keen faces,she LOVES to play along with there challenges.The challenge this week is Create a shaped card using PKS faces.
I will miss when she goes back to school, I will lose my scrapbooking partner.

 
I had also made some magnets on my last post which I have included in the photo below just to show how large her card is.She always likes to make her projects large.

Please be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop,the talented ladies have some wonderful projects for you to see.

Wow Cindy. Another amazing LO. I love the font of the title. The little worm is adorable. And all those crayons all around the LO is the perfect frame. Your children are so adorable. My daughter does not go back to school until the first week in September, and she goes till the end of June too. Depending on what part of the US you live in depends on when school gets out. So places that are very hot get out earlier so the kids don't have to sit in the scorching heat. Anyway, your project is stunning as always Cindy. You sure do have amazing talent.
