Queen of my Craftrooms Back To School Blog Hop Day #1!!!!

Welcome to the Queen of my Craftrooms Back to School Blog Hop!!  If you are just stopping by here first, please make sure you start at the beginning of the blog at:

What a great way to welcome students back to school with a pencil and a goodie bag full of erasers to start the year off right!  This year I wanted to welcome my students back to school with something different than the usual candy goodie bags.  I think I will hand these out during Open House.  This gift set was super fast and easy to create-perfect on a teacher's budget!!

Here are the materials used for this project:
Enjoy the Seasons Imagine Cricut Cartridge-apple/worm cut at 3 inches
DCWV Makin' the Grade paper pack
circle and scallop punch by Stampin' Up
Welcome stamp-2006 Stampin' Up set
Back to School stamp/A+ Student stamp-My Creative Time "My Teacher Rocks" stamp set
pack of pencils and erasers found at the dollar store
Blue Ribbon

**Make sure you leave a comment stating what you enjoyed the most about coming back to school when you were younger and also become a follower in order to have the chance to win an I-Rock tool set.  The winner will be chosen on August 15th.  Good luck everyone and I hope you enjoy the hop!!
