Back to School Blog Hop!


Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and the Back to School Blog Hop hosted by Jovan at Cards by Jovan. I am so excited to be participating in this hop with so many other creative bloggers. Jovan will be having a challenge on her blog and a great giveaway, so be sure to check it out. If you have arrived from Adrian's blog you are in the right spot. If you happen to stumble on my upon my blog and would like to play along, please do so by starting at Jovan's blog.

With my children all out of grade school and college, back to school doesn't effect my household anymore. When they were younger we always took a day or two and shopped for new cloths, shoes, backpacks and school supplies, etc.  We always had a fun time together and the kids looked forward to it!!

The first day of school went like this~ the kids would go to school, Dad would go to work and I would meet up with about 8 of my girlfriends for coffee/breakfast. Then some of us would head to work and some off to the mall. Guess where I would go???? Ha ha.....that would defiantly be the MALL:) We still meet the first day of school, even though are kids are all out of school..fun, ha?

My project today is a cute little treat bag idea. You could make this for a Teacher or classmates and fill it with a yummy treat like laffy taffy, gummies, etc:) I always had fun making and sending treat bags with the kids to school for their classmates each year.



 I used the Accent Essentials cartridge for the shape and cut 2 of them at 3 1/2 and adhered them to a small treat bag originally sized at 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 cut down to 3 1/2 x 2 3/4. I cut the apple at 2 3/4 from the Doodle Charms cartridge and the cute little face from the Peachy Keen~Princess Face. Cute little face, ha? My sentiment is from TPC Studio~I love school stamp set. I also added a little ribbon and some sweet bakers twine.  Hope you like!

  21. How cute Sherrie! The face on the apple is adorable! It sounds like you kind of miss that first day of school with the kids huh? My youngest is going into his junior year and even though the first day is still somewhat exciting it's just not the same as when he was younger. But we do have our memories! :)

    Oh, you don't have to enter me in the bloghop candy, I'm just stopping in to say hey!

    Have a great day!

  28. Oh dear gosh, how much do I adore this sweet little apple?! She's the apple of my eye... hehe! Sorry, couldn't resist! :o) Her face is so precious and I LOVE her twine bow! I'm crazy about her sparkly cheeks, embossed leaf, and plaid background, too... so basically, all of it? :o) Beautiful work, as always! (And I love how you and your friends still get together on the first day of school! Lovely traditions like that should never end.) :o)

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
