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!

    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, I made a super simple post it note holder.  I thought this paper was really cute, and no back to school project would be complete without an apple for the teacher. Although I think the worm has his own ideas. haha

This is the front of my post it note holder....
I made a slit for the little pen to slide into, but got so excited to get my pictures uploaded that I forgot to put it in there LOL (it goes right beside the apple in that little slit on the side). I got the sentiment from the TPC Studios "Greetings ". I thought it would be perfect for my little teacher gift. :)
The adorable little faces are from PKS.

This is the back..isn't that paper the cutest!! I got it at Hobby Lobby in the single sheet section.

....and this is the inside. The measurement for this is 7 3/4 x 3 1/4.
Scored at 3 1/8, 3 1/2 and 3 7/8.
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,
 2: Leave me a comment.
That's it. EASY PEASY!!
I will let Random. Org pick the lucky winner on Monday.
Now head on over to Miss Cindy Lou's "classroom"  and see what project she has for you,  hehe.
