Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back to School Blog Hop!!

It's another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog Hop!! Our theme this month is 'Back To School'! My oldest daughter starts Kindergarten this year so 'Back To School' has a whole new meaning to me! I'd better not get talking about it or the tears will start flowing again... ;) 

My middle daughter is starting Preschool this year, too!! Crazy changes going on around here! I had to use Lisa's files to make her a layout for pics on her very first day...  



I printed/cut my crayon box in two layers and popped the second layer up using foam stickers. Of course I had to add a Peachy Keen ace too!! 


I had the greatest idea - or I think so, anyway... - to use my baby hand prints from the Jaded Blossom stamp set, Sweet Baby, on a PPPR chalkboard! I embossed the prints using white powder. 

I used the following cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons...


Other Supplies I used to make my layout...
- Sweet & Innocent Face Stamp Assortment from Peachy Keen
- Sweet Baby Stamps from Jaded Blossom
- Berry twine from Trendy Twine
- Journaling tag from Pretty Little Studio
- sequins and buttons from Dollarstore
- Momenta pattern paper
