Day 2 - Beginning of School Blog Hop

Happy Sunday all, hope you are enjoying your weekend. This is Day 2 of the hop, and hope that you got to see all the creative talent of the ladies participating in this hop yesterday. 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 2 project:

School Days Layout:

This 2 page layout I made for my daughter for her new class I made 2 blue Journal Boxes to use a white gel pen with. The yellow boxes are for photos (one for her 1st school photo and one for her second school photo, also one for her class photo and another for her and her friends)

Page 1 is for her 1st and 2nd school picture.

Page 2 is for her class photo, journaling boxes, and a photo of her friends and her.

This large apple is cut from one of the Cricut Cartridges, but not sure which one. Everything on this layout was from my stash of extra die cuts and things I got in swaps. White gel pen was used to make the highlite.

The small apples are inchies I made for a swap and had tons left over.

This is one of the Paperkins Doll from back in 2002, that I was going to use on another layout back then, but didn't. Highlited the doll with black and white gel pens. Also with white gel pen wrote Back to Class on the black board and the whit on the apple.

This Globe was part of the Paperkins Doll kit. Used a black gel pen to highlite certian area's around areas.

This is one of the stamped items I received from a school swap I was in.

The title was part of a School swap I was in. I had 2 extra left and desided I was design around this. I used stickels to make the stars stand out. The background paper is from Leaving Prints.

Well hope you liked my layout and love to hear all of your comments. Please be sure to head on over to the next blogger on the list.

Thank you for your comments and enjoy the rest of the hop.

    Thanks for the chance to add some Copics to my new collection. I only have about 15 of them so I could use em' I love em' I wished I'd gotten them sooner. They are so smooth and color nicely. I just need to build up my collection so I can use them properly.
