Stylin' Stampin' Squad September Blog Hop

Yes - it's here! Time for another blog hop. This month's theme is fall/back to school. I'm twice as excited because fall is my favourite time of year and I was REALLY ready for school to start again. You may have arrived here from Dawn's blog. Please make sure to leave comments for all of our participants so we can feel the love. Here are my projects:

It has been so much fun to make up these canning jars for little gifts. This jar and matching card were my son's teacher gift for the first day of school. The jar contains some lifesavers candy. I didn't think of how appropriate that was until after I had given her the gift! The Perfectly Preserved Bundle has been one of my favourite purchases from the holiday catalogue.

This was a joint project between my son and I. He loves to craft along with me and I enjoy the quality time together. He coloured the back to school letters and punched the stars. Perfect little helper. I had so much fun making the pencil. Love it! This double page layout is a nice addition for the scrapbook.
