A little something just for you!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello my crafty friends! 
I bet you are thinking...Wow, another post from Sherrie? Yup, had a little time this morning so instead of scrubbing my floors... I went to my craft room...yeah! The floors can wait, right?

I will probably missing some next week as my son's wedding is next Saturday and there are a lot of last minute things to do along with company coming. So, I will be returning as soon as things settle a bit. Can't wait to get back to crafting/blogging on a regular basis ;)

Today I have a quick but fun little gift idea to share with you. I frequent a local coffee shop and there are a few girls that will be leaving next week to go back to school. So, I thought Arya and I would put together a little gift for each of them with snacks and back to school supplies since they are ALWAYS so
kind to little Arya and I when we stop in :)
I filled a container with some yummy goodies that Arya and I picked out and then put it all into a cello bag and made a cute little tag for each of them. Of course, I had to go back and make one for Arya. She just couldn't figure out why there wasn't one for her! A few tears.....and.... well, we just couldn't have that now, can we?
The adorable book worm is a file from Miss Kate Cuttables in the Silhouette Store. I cut the tag at 3 3/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge and popped this adorable little book worm on it. I stamped the sentiment 
using My Creative Time's Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments stamp set. I finished by tying them with a big bow using ribbon from my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #16 Kids Theme
2.) Double Click Challenge #2 Back to School
3.) Cardz TV Challenge #6 3D Back to School
4.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #80 Children
