Back to School Blog Hop

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop.

It's that time of year again when the kiddos are gathering up their backpacks, sharpening their pencils, polishing their apples and are headed back to school. What a better way to celebrate than with a BLOG HOP! the way you will find such wonderful projects such as gifts for teachers, classroom ideas, scrapbook layouts, cards, and more.
Please be sure to visit every blog and leave a comment to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE your choice of 5 Digi Stamps from Jen's Digi Stamps. You will love these cute stamps that are perfect for every occasion and creation.
If you came here from my bestie Patricia's blog then you are in the right place. If you didn't and you just stopped by that's okay go back to the beginning at Blessed On The Bright Side and Hop with us. You will find lots of talented designing friends on this hop and you don't want to miss a single one!!

Here is the Blog List:

First, I would like to welcome everyone to my blog and I look forward to showcasing what I have made for this fantastic blog hop. This is my very first Blog Hop so I'm really excited to participate in it. I would like to thank Shawnee for letting me be part of this great hop because I have a daughter who is entering in the third grade and what great way to get her ready for school is by greeting her teacher with a special gift.

Therefore, here is the Back to School Gift that my daughter will be giving her teacher. Ever  wonder what kind of Pencil Holder a Teacher would love to have. This Pencil Holder that I created is perfect because it screams "School" by the use of Crayola Crayons. It is a favorite company that many schools use in their classroom.
