"Back to School Blog Hop" Day 2


      Hello everyone, and welcome back to day 2  of 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!

       Along 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 Kacee'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!!

   For my project today, I made a mini album out of toilet paper rolls. I flattened all of the rolls and ran my bone folder over the edges and then I inked all the edges with primary colors. I then measured from side to side and top to bottom cut my paper and glued them to the rolls. Then I cut a  tag and rounded the corners for the pictures or journaling.
                                         Here is a video I made to show you all the different pages.




Before you go...I have some candy a $10.00 gift certificate for Peachy Keen Stamps ( now who doesn't LOVE   PKS)!

All you have to do is:
1: Follow my blog and,

Now head on over to Miss Cindy Lou's "classroom" and see what awesome  project she has for you, hehe.
