BACK TO SCHOOL BLOG HOP DAY #3



Welcome to the BACK TO SCHOOL BLOG HOP, DAY #3 


This Blog Hop is FOUR DAYS long with a new project for EACH DAY! Please be sure to check back each day because I know the ladies have worked really hard to create something awesome to share with you! There will be a bunch great projects and FUN with the possibility of winning prizes along the way!! All of the blog hop ladies are new crafty friends and I just know this is going to be an AWESOME HOP! 
A HUGE THANK YOU to Rebekah for organizing this!  
If you have come from Amanda - you are in the right place! If you happened to stop by today and would like to start at the beginning of the blog hop, please start  at our fantastic hostess' Rebekah's blog so that you can join in on ALL OF THE FUN and CREATIVITY! 


Now I KNOW I LOVE TO WIN PRIZES and if you have followed my blog, you already know I have done really well in the past 6 weeks (WINNING FIVE TIMES!) so of course I LOVE GIVING AWAY BLOG CANDY TOO!!  One lucky blog candy winner will receive some really cool stuff! Now to win on my blog, you will need to be a follower of my blog, 
comment on ALL FOUR DAYS OF THE  BLOG HOP and answer the questions for the day- so far there has been two questions and it looks like I may be stuck with this AMAZING BLOG CANDY!!! So today's question is what is your FAVORITE school supply to use when you are creating? I have three that I CAN'T CREATE WITHOUT! Punches.. all kinds, staples, all sizes and colors and clips.. I just love all kinds of paper clips, clasps and stuff that adds a little dimension and pizzaz to the page!


For an EXTRA chance to win, place my button on your blog and


comment that you did so! It's just that simple :)



The blog candy winner for my blog will be announced on Monday, August 15th by noon PT. EVERYONE is eligible to win-I have been VERY fortunate to win blog candy from two different countries and they were generous enough to allow me to win even though I am in the US- I CERTAINLY want to pay it forward :)  Here is a pic of the blog candy one lucky winner will receive which includes a Cuttlebug embossing folder, two Tim Holtz embossing die folders and two sheets of mini alpha stickers. To save on shipping, I will be taking the Tim Holtz embossing folders out of their packaging.

Now onto APRIL'S AMAZING BLOG so see what great project she has in store for you!

Now for my project.. I am going to start by apologizing because this project, albeit small.. it is quite mighty and I had to take A BUNCH OF PICTURES to show you the inside pages so... I AM VERY SORRY! LOL  I used a ton of different items including, Tim Holtz stamps, stampin up, Technique Tuesday, some I am not sure who made them. I used paper from Becky Higgins, Bazzill, Karen Foster , my stash & DCWV. Various fibers from Michael's, Joanns, my stash, jillibean soup, and string from my stash.  I used a real label maker and the labels from my stash.. I LOVE THAT THING! I used numerous embossing folders by sizzix, quick Kuts and Tim Holtz. I am sure there is more stuff and  I apologize if I am forgetting anything or anyone. It is not for any reason other than I didn't have the packaging to be able to give credit where credit is due.  I apologize that the pics are sideways in some cases but I downloaded them 5 times and no matter what I did, that is how they came out so I am tired and it's time for me to go to bed (it's almost 4 am) so this will have to do until tomorrow if I figure out how to fix it! LOL


Now for the pictures... I am just going to post them.. I did as much as I could without making it too personalized for fear that the person that wants it may not want it themed directly for a certain grade.. besides,  I think the pages are pretty self explanatory :)















 



 




























Have a wonderful day and thanks for taking the time to visit me!
And as always, make today and every day
A CREATIVE JOURNEY :) 
With Love & Creativity,
Melissa

What a cute idea I love this. I would have to say that I love using "TAPE" I love the Tim Holtz tapes as well as foil tape to add a special touch to my projects.
