Enjoy the Journey!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi my crafty friends..hope you are having a GREAT day and had a wonderful weekend! I have another fun Back to School idea to share with you.
 I made this gift package for a couple young girls that work at the local coffee shop that I go to. They just love it when I bring little Arya there and they are so sweet to her. The girls are starting their first year of college so we thought of putting a care package together for them. Hope they like them:)
I started with a green storage container I found at the dollar store. I filled it with things they may need in the classroom and treats for them while studying. It's filled with pens, highlighters, note pads, a journal, Kleenex, chocolate, v8 energy juice, crackers, etc and put it inside a clear cell bag. I closed it and tied it off to the side with a gingham bow and added this fun tag.
The note tag is made from the Simply Charmed cartridge which is cut at 4" plus all the layers. I stamped the fun sentiments using My Creative Time's ~ Life is Good stamp set. The cute glasses are stamped with the My Creative Time's ~Here's Lookin' at You stamp set. I added a small paper clip to the corner that was in my stash. 
The apple and the layers are cut at 5" from the Create A Critter cartridge and the face is stamped with the Peachy Keen~ PK180 Erkle & Merkle face stamp set. 
I added some rosy cheeks, freckles, some doodling and then tied a jute bow.
Good luck to Hillary and Erica! Hope you like them:)

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party #13-Anything Goes
2.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #34 School
3.) Exploring Cricut Challenge~Cricut Choice (any cartridge-2 cricut cuts)

  19. GASP! I love this Sherrie! What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do. I remember I worked as a waitress in HS and a retired fireman came in every day a couple times a day to have a cup of coffee and tell tall tales with some of his buddies, when I was leaving for college he gave me money and lots of luck. It really touched me. These girls will remember you forever!
