The Beginning of School Blog Hop - #101 Fabulous Finds




Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the Beginning of School Blog Hop! So glad you could join us! You should be arriving at my blog from VinDeeLoo's This 'N That, but if you have just happened to stop by my blog then please head over to Creations With Kathryn to start at the beginning of the hop!



For my project today I created a layout of my sweet daughter Jenae on her first day of school last fall. She was so excited to be starting Grade 2 and I can't believe that this September she will be going into Grade 3! My daughter just loves school and I hope she continues her passion for learning for many years to come!



For my layout I used mainly Stampin' Up! products. This line (Playtime) is just retired but it is one of my favorites! The stamp set is called Forest Friends.


The Cricut cartridges / cuts I used are:



Bread bag tag - Fabulous Finds



Journaling Tag - Christmas Cheer



Now for some blog candy! I have another Cherry Blossom Gypsy Starter Kit to give away to one lucky winner! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post for a chance at the prize! AND if you come back tomorrow and leave a comment on that project, you will get another entry! Simple!



Now it's time for you to head over to Peanut Butter and Jelly Designs to see what the fabulous Michelle has in store for you! Have fun and see you tomorrow!

  11. Jen,
    Thanks for the lovely intro, I appreciate it. Your layout of your daughter is really cute.... 3rd grade was a great year for me... I had my favorite teacher, Mrs. Rindgen's Class. I can't wait to see what you have for us tomorrow. I know this is off topic of the blog hop but, that cake you had posted the other day was awesome!!!! You should sell them, locally of course.
