If you came from April's blog you are in the right place. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop please go to Rebekah she is the wonderful host of our hop at

Today I have a fun abc card that I made using the new apple cheddar soup line by Jillibean Soup. I really love the colors in this line combined with the cute floral, apples and plaid designs. These colors just scream Fall to me, so they are perfect for back to school themed projects.

ABC card:

I had so much fun making the banner out of Maya road chipboard banner pieces, wooden spools, and twine.

Here is a close up shot:

Did you notice the bubble cap letters? I created them with my round 14 shape studio tool from Epiphany Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to come by again tomorrow for more fun school themed projects and prizes. Leave me a comment today, and I will enter you in a drawing for 3 packages of Petaloo flowers.

Be sure to check out these crafty girls next for more inspiration and a chance to win more prizes.
