The Beginning of School Blog Hop - Day 2 - #102 Groovy Times

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Beginning of School Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from VinDeeLoo's This 'N That, then you are at the right place! However, if you have just happened to stop by my blog, then please head over to Creations With Kathryn, where you can start from the beginning of this fabulous blog hop!

For my first project today, I covered a portfolio that I picked up at Walmart in a pattern that I thought my daughter would like.

The cartridges /cuts I used for this project are:

Letters and Flower - All Mixed Up

Frame - Elegant Edges

The patterned paper is by Anna Griffith.

I added some Stickles and a brad to the flower.

The ruler sticker is my Making Memories.

For my next project, I created a card for my daughter to give to her on her first day of school.

The cartridges / cuts I used on this card are:

Shoes - Groovy Times

Frame - Elegant Edges
The paper used is from the same collection by Anna Griffith.

I used the same Stickles and ruler sticker for this card and added some bling with my I-Rock by Imiginisce.

The sentiment stamp is by My Creative Time.

For this blog hop, I am giving away a Cherry Blossom Gypsy Starter kit to one lucky winner who leaves a comment on this post! For a second chance, make sure you have also left a comment on yesterdays Beginning of School Blog Hop post!
Next up on the blog hop we have Peanut Butter and Jelly Designs so please head over there to see what Michelle has to show you! Hope you are enjoying the hop so far and have a great day!
