Back to School Blog Hop

The Paper Passion is hosting a blog hop this weekend and you will have a chance to win a fabulous prize!!

Your Assignment: visit the all of the blogs in the hop and comment on each one. Then make sure to visit the Paper Passion Blog to check out the prize and report that you completed your assignment. You must comment on all of the blogs to be entered into the prize draw.

You may have arrived from my sweet friend Vanessa's blog (I love this girl!!) Next you will visit Jenn's blog (she is one super talented scrapper, in case you didn't already know).

You have until Aug 30th to completed the hop, so no excuses!

Here is my Back to School Project



A nifty little card for teacher on the first day back at school (I would LOVE to receive such a thing).

I used my new favourite thing...CORK...to make my other new favourite thing...mini corkboards!! This is the 5th mini cork board I've made on a project. I adore them. Reminds me of my corkboard at home jammed full of little momentos, memories and upcoming events to look forward to.

Do you have a cork board to keep track of things? Is it neat, tidy and organized? Or a complete mess like mine is?

Don't forget to head right on over to Jenn's blog to see what she has created for your viewing pleasure.
