Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back to School Blog hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back to School Blog Hop.  

If you came here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.

Today we are making projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Files that are all school related.    

I made a layout for today's blog hop.  For the patterned paper background I used the Layered Labels 1 Cutting file.  I also used the same shape for my journaling space.  

The title, pencil and school bus are from the Back 2 School Cutting file.  

The glue, scissor and eraser are from the Primary Supplies Cutting File.  You don't know how real the scissors look in person, it's hard to tell in the picture.  But let me tell you I tried to pick them up and cut with them several times.  I have a pair of scissors that are very similar looking and when I wasn't paying attention I was easily mistaking the two of them.  LOL!

The yellow twine is the Lemonade Yellow from Timeless Twine.   

 For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog.  For extra chances, you can also "LIKE" Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter.
