Back to School Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop, brought to you by the fabulous design teams of Made Especially For You and the GoFish Challenge Blog!

These two design teams have joined together to bring you some fun and crafty inspiration to help you get started on those back to school projects! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Made Especially For You.


If you've made it this far, you've just visited Cyndy's blog and now you're here with me!

For my part of the hop, I decided that nothing says back to school quite like primary colors and a big shiny red apple :-)  This would be a fun accompaniment to a teach appreciation gift...Show those teachers some love!

The supplies here are white, red and yellow cardstock, papers from Cosmo Cricket's Helllo Sunshine, clear cardstock from Reflections (you can see it in the window behind the apple), green and white polka dot papers from Reflections, Celebrate It Basic Ribbons in red and an apple stickers from the Michaels dollar bin from a few years ago (about time I used him!) 

Your next stop on the hop is Robin at The Cricut Scrapper!

We have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on EVERY stop of the hop! Let's see what they have to offer...
