Back To School Blog Hop | SDS SVG Attic

Welcome to the SnapDragon Snippets/SVG Attic Back To School blog hop and to my blog!
We are super excited to have you join us!
Hope you have so far been inspired by the creativity of each of Snapdragon Snippets and SVGAttic design team members.  If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

I created several projects for this hop:

First up I have a Layout I created that provided my daughter and me lots of laughter!  Long story-short, neither of us could locate pictures of my grand daughters' back-to-school from last year that my son in law took... But I needed some pronto! I had already created the Layout!  In desperation, more like my daughter is so fun and entertains my everything-must-match-scrapbooking frenzy, she offered to take "pretend" back to school pictures because my grand daughters do not go back to school until the 25th and I needed them before the 16th!  We laughed so much and thanked her for reading my mind! LOL. We called it a "dry run" haha.
So I decided to keep the journal entry true and write exactly what happened!  Besides I know I will get pictures on the actual day and can later scrapbook those.

I have a second Layout of my super smart grand daughter Jasmine who just happens to love to read. She is starting 6th grade and taking some pre-advanced placement (AP) courses!

Next I have two school buses to give to my grand daughters.

I will be writing the message on the white part before I ship.

Last I am sharing a card I made using the apple which I converted to a shaker and stamped using stamps by Dilo En Español.

Hope my projects have inspired you to create!
