School is cool!

The kids go back to school on Tuesday. I put together a box of fun school-ish goodies to send to the grands. Mostly stuff that is 'extra' that moms with lots of kids {i.e. daughter Sally, who has 4 of her own plus a stepdaughter} can't always afford to get with all the other must-haves. I enclosed a card in each box.

Adorable jumping rope girl by Peachy Keen Stamps. All paper pieced, I might add. :)


 I used My Creative Time stamps to make my own sentiment

Peachy Keen school bus stamp

 Stickles for lights and glossy accents on the windshield and headlights

My Creative Time and Peachy Keen stamps to make my own sentiment

Scented markers, mechanical pencils, fine sharpies, bookmarks, and a squiggly straw and a kool aid singles....oh yes, and I included mustaches for the straws! :)


Also included is a "pencil" filled with candy. I can't show you the whole pencil yet as it's part of my DT project this week. Sneaky, I know, sorry! ;) Be sure to come back Thursday to see the whole thing. It's stinkin cute if I do say so myself.

Hope you're enjoying your long weekend. Thanks for checking in today!

  2. Adorable card! The jump-rope is a charming embellishment. But, that school bus...how could anyone dread going back to school on such a friendly-looking bus?! Clever way to adapt the sentiment stamps, too. As 'Mom' to a gaggle, I can appreciate what a significant GIFT these goodies are-I know Sally will too. The kiddies are sure to grin from ear to ear!
    "Grandma's great! She gives us chocolate cake!" (Okay, maybe just some markers that smell like it.)
