Paper Paradise

I am finally going to get to go back to Hobby Lobby and Michael's this weekend! I usually get to go about every month or two! I'm super excited! I haven't had time to do anything since starting back to work a couple of weeks ago! I really want to make some Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. I also wanted to start on the girls baby albums.

I made some really cute treat bags for my girlfriend Pam to give to her associates at work. I should have gotten pictures because they were extremely cute! I added some chocolates and little cute things to go in the treat bags. But we were rushed for time so I didn't get the shots! So what has everyone else been up too? I feel so out of the loops right now! Hopefully I'll get back to scrapping/crafting soon! Take Care!

Back to School treat bags

I made 20 Back To School Treat Bags for the kids at church this weekend. I actually forgot to take a picture before I gave them all away but I did have 1 left over. I did a blue theme for the boys, a pink theme for the girls and the yellow themed were the extra ones. I actually found several cute ideas from twopeasinbucket but didn't have a whole lot of money to invest in them so I keep them very simple.

I put in pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, rubber grips, highlighters, and lots of candy. I also typed a little card and attached it to the bags. It reads

Student Survival Kit

Eraser- to remind you that each day you can start with a clean slate. Everybody makes mistakes but Jesus always forgives. Others should too.

Sucker- to remind you not to be a "sucker." Be your own person. Remember WWJD!

Pencil- to "write" your wrongs.

Pencil Sharpener
- to remind you to stay "sharpened" Always keep your heart and mind on Jesus.

Bubble Gum- will encourage you to be persistent. "Stick with it" and you can! All things are possible with God!

Over all I have a little over $1.00 in each bag. Thanks to the dollar tree!
