Thanks for joining us for our back to school blog hop today.
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 http://colorkraft.blogspot.com/
I would also like to thank Rebekah for hosting this wonderful hop.
Have your kids gone back to school yet? Mine will go back to school on Monday, so we have spent the last few days getting well care visits, dropping off shot records at the school office, picking up new school supplies and shopping for new clothes, backpacks and shoes. It has been a little exhausting and I will feel better after the kids go back to school and we get back into a routine again.
I wanted to share with you my first project that I made for our back to school hop. A couple of weeks ago we stopped by the Old Sacramento school house and I was able to get some fun pics of my kids sitting in an old fashioned classroom. They got to sit at the desks, write on the chalkboards, and learn about what it was like to go to school in the 1800's. So, I was so excited to get the chance to document our trip on a layout, and this is what I made:

Here is a detail shot up close:
*Tip- a quick and easy way to add interest to your page is by layering custom buttons to premade flowers. I used my button studio maker from Epiphany Crafts to make these fun buttons. Then popped them up with foam tape on top of the premade flowers.
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 a sheet of 4 Prima mini stamps with rhinestone jewels.
Be sure to check out these crafty girls next for more inspiration and a chance to win more prizes.
