Back to School Blog Hop

Welcome to our Back To School Blog Hop 
with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!

This weekend we will be featuring projects
 all about Back To School. 
Can you believe school has started?  

I am so excited, because this is my youngest 
childs senior year.  Woo Hoo!

We hope you enjoy all of the great work this Design Team has done and find some inspiration.

I made this little notebook for my friend, who happens to be the Counselor at my son's 
high school.  She works hard all the time, 
but especially his time of year.

I got these notebooks several years ago 
from papertrey ink.  They also had a 
template for the cover.  I like how it has a 
pocket inside for cards or other things 
you don't want to loose.  Since this is for 
a high school teacher I decided to make 
it with an older theme and not the
typical back to school things.  I doodled on it
just like I did in high school, while I was 
trying not to fall asleep in class.  LOL
