Back to School Blog Hop - The Stamping Boutique!

The Stamping Boutique is having a Blog Hop and the theme is "Back to School".  To help celebrate Tracey came up with some fabulous new back to school images that you will get to see along the way.  If you hopped over to my blog from Crystal B's blog than you are on the right track!  If not be sure to start back at the beginning on Aletha's blog so you don't miss anything!  Be sure to comment along the way as there may be prizes to be won :)

For my card I used the "Back to School Apple" digi image and paper pieced the whole thing!  I have to say I love this digi image & am sure I will use it quite alot since I can make it large for my card or keep it small and add lines for journalling.  The perfect image for those back to school type projects or scrapbook pages!  I used some cork paper by Karen Foster that I've had forever and the DP was from the  DCWV Grade School stack of papers.  The number's are metal pieces by Making Memories & the brads I've also had for quite a while!  I think I'm going to use this for either a scrapbook page or for the front cover of a mini photo album showcasing school photos of my son from kindergarten through the years.

Hope you enjoy the hop....your next stop is Donna!  Have fun :)
