  I would like to thank everyone for their lovely comments yesterday.
Thank you Shawnee for organizing this wonderful Blog Hop and a big thanks to all the crafty ladies and their inspiration.  
 For my project today I have two items again.  The first is a Back to School gift in a soda bottle. You Tube directions can be found here- Gift in a pop bottle . Back to School cut from Recess cartridge. I have made these for different special events and they are always a big hit.  The second item is an empty Altoid mint tin that is covered with paper and ribbon for kids to use for their lunch money.  The word lunch is cut From My Kitchen at 1.5 ".
These are the items that are in my Back to School bottle.  
For my blog candy please become a follower and leave a comment.  Make sure you leave a comment for both days.  I will choose a winner on Sunday the 14th and they will win a goody bag of  School stickers to help with your Back to School projects. 
Now off to your next stop which is Bryann
