Back To School at Canadian Paper Trail

It is the end of August and that means back to school for all the little boys and girls. Let's also not forget those dedicated educators who are back once again to fill those minds with worldly knowledge. They all deserve a treat and so I've put together a couple of projects to make that first day back extra special.

What student wouldn't love to get this miniature backpack filled with chocolate goodies?

I used the CTMH Felicity paper and CTMH ribbon and brads. The pattern came from Splitcoast Stampers website. Mmmmmm yummy Hershey's nuggets complete the treat.

And for the dedicated teacher, back to fill the minds of another class.

The Survival lunchbox is created using my Hinged Box pattern and CTMH Notebook paper. I also included some yummy Hershey's nuggets for the teacher. Chocolate is always a good stress reliever don't you think?

The photography was done by my wonderful friend Erica. She is an Edmonton, AB budding photographer. Be sure to check out her work by following the link at the bottom of this page - Erica's Fabulous Photography!! She does amazing work.

Miracle Kit by Miranda!!

Miranda Moreno, my daughter and a Close To My Heart consultant, has finally gotten around to working with the Miracle kit. Too bad she waited so long as she created such a wonderful piece of art to commemorate their visit to Mexico. More! More!

She didn't have a 5 x 7 photo so she added a 1/4" frame of Bamboo cardstock followed by a 1/2" frame of Crystal Blue Cardstock. This layering makes the photo of her husband pop off the page.

She used Holiday Red to accent the Irresitables chipboard to co-ordinate beautifully with hubby's ball cap.

The remainder of the layout was completed per instructions.
