You're beary sweet~Pencil Toppers

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello my crafty friends! 
Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! 
I hope you had a great weekend! It went WAY to fast!!! I spent a lot of time over the weekend working hard on bows/tags to complete the wedding party favors for my sons upcoming wedding.  I took a break (a much needed one) to sneak in  my craft room and play for
a while...shhhh!!

  I found this cute inchworm pencil topper file as I was browsing the Silhouette Store a few days back looking for a quick and fast gift idea for Arya's little neighbor friends. With the kids out of school, Arya's little neighbors come over a lot in the summer to play. Sometimes it's nice to have them sit and color, draw and have quiet time instead of running in and out of the house all day. So, this was a little something she could give to them when they have a little break from outdoor playing. 
I cut them out, folder on the score lines and weaved the pencil through the holes. The tails are wrapped with My Craft Spots Yellow and Parrot Green  Jute twine and the sentiment is stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. Super easy and pretty fast! 
Of course, I had to add a little treat for them, lol! I filled these cute little boxes I picked up at Jaded Blossoms with sour gummy worms, yummy! I added a little belly wrap around the box and a cute doily tag using My Craft Spots Tiny Doilies metal Die and for the sentiment the Stamping All Around Spring and Stamping All Around Summer stamp sets.
So, what do you think???
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) My Craft Spot Challenge #145 Just for little Boys
2.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #113 Summer Fun
3.) DL.ART July Linky
4.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday

If we lived closer, I'd be helping you to get them done :) I'm on a break from lectures, trying to catch up in blogland so I'm not overwhelmed when I get back. They are having possible record setting low temps back home...what a crazy summer this has been weather-wise. Have a wonderful week my dear friend!! Hopefully you can find more time to relax!!
