Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!

I'm so glad that you have joined me for My Pink Stamper's Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!    If you arrived here from Michelle at Meesh's Pieces, then you're in the right place.  If you arrived here on your own tonight, I invite you to head over to My Pink Stamper so you can start hopping from the beginning and see all the wonderful designer's projects.

Isn't this a wonderful time of year?  I just love September because it means cooler weather, harvest time, apples, and of coarse - school!  I have one child in middle school, one in elementary school, and my little guy does mommy-school.  Homework, carpool, packed lunches, orchestra - wait, why am I excited it's September?  LOL!

The theme for this month's hop is the My Pink Stamper set School Days.  If you would like to purchase this set or any of Robyn's fabulous stamps, you can find a list of retailers here.





















I decided that it is never too earlier to be thinking of fun gift ideas for my children's wonderful teachers.  So I designed a backpack!  The backpack closure is a little piece of velcro, so it is all set to hold candy, some cookies, mini bottles of lotion or soap - whatever.
























Stamp:  My Pink Stamper School Days
Cricut Cartridges:  Mother's Day Bouquet (flower), Winter Frolic (tag)
Paper:  Around the Block (Periwinkle Buttons), Georgia Pacific
Embellishments:  white embossing powder, Recollections (pearls), lace

Now it's time for you to hop over to the lovely Karlee at Karlee Krafts .  Thanks so much for stopping by!  And don't forget to head back to My Pink Stamper to join us for a fun challenge!  Here's the complete hop order for you just in case:


Maria

**  Update:  Thank you for your interest in how to make the backpack!  It is so easy - I'll work on getting some detailed instructions up in a few days.  **
