Day 1 - Beginning of School Blog Hop

Hi all, sorry I have been MIA lately. I have been dealing with some real family emergencies of late.  Everything is going to get better cause I believe in my faith and I know that it will all work out. Plus He will never put more on my plate than I can handle, this I know.

Well on with the 2 day hop. There are some wonderfully talented women you will be meet as you hop through the line-up of blogs. You will be inspired and see the crafting talent of all these wonderful women.

I will be giving away a blog candy at the end of this 2 day hop.  The blog candy will be 2 Copic Sketch markers (YR02 & Yr04), Maya Mist ( Butternut Squash Orange & Earl Gray), and Stampin' Up-Decor Element (Songbird Tile Chocolate small).

To be in the drawing for this blog candy:

1) Be a follower of my blog
2) Comment on my posts. You will get an extra chance if you comment on both days.
3) Come back on Monday night to find out if you are the winner.
4) If you are the winner, leave me away to get a hold of you.

Ok on with Day 1 project:

School Layout:


The background paper is from Stampin' Up (crumb cake), the rest of the papers are from my scrap stash.


Page 1 everything is handmade, except for the Title. Not sure where I got the title from, it wasn't in any packaging. The stickers are from my stash of very old stuff.


Page 2 everything here was handmade, except for the sticker and buttons.


This is a journaling book or extra photo book that I made from one I saw somewhere. Wish I could give credit to whom I got the idea from.


This is the first page of the inside of the journaling book or photo book.


This is the second page of the inside of the journaling book and photo book. I love these little tabs that I got in a die cut swap.


The file folder opens ups for more journaling. The small apples on the pages are inchies that I made and didn't end up using them. The larger apple is also a die cut from a die cut swap.

Well I hope you enjoyed my project and I love to hear any comments you might have.

Now on to the rest of the blogs. If you get lost you can always come back here and pick up the place you last were at.
