Back to School Blog Hop!

A special thank you to Michelle: for hosting this blog hop!  If you arrived here first, please go to Michelle's site to view all the wonderful projects!  If you arrived from Wendy  then, you are in the right spot! 

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop!


School does not start here until September but, I guess for some it is soon across the nation.  I hope this hop helps to get you geared up and motivated for Back to School! 

I made a great project for a gift for the teacher or even for a home office unless of course your child wants it for school.  I picked up the new Graphic 45 stack from CHA in Chicago Summer Show 2011 just a few weeks ago.  This stack is not even out yet but, here is a taste of an ABC primer paper stack.
Using the Xyron permanent glue, I glued the paper strips.

I adhered it to the clear pencil case on the bottom...

And the top.

I added some embellishments and layered the books and girl separately. They were on an abc primer paper stack by Graphic 45.

Here is a close up.
