Queen of my Craftroom Back to School Blog Hop Aug 6th & 7th Day 2

Welcome Back to Day 2 of the Queen of 
my Craftroom Back to School Blog Hop.
If you are joining me from Berenice at
Then you are in the right place.

If you just happened across my blog and would
like to play along in our fun hop, you can go to
Queen of My Craftroom at
and start at the beginning.  There are so many
amazing and talented ladies in this hop.

Thank you for  joining me on Day 2 of the Back 
to School Blog Hop! Each of us bloggers were ask 
to create a Back to School themed project for this Hop.

I decided for todays hop to make a couple Sweet 
Treats that can be handed out to your child's new
teacher on the first day of school.

I though "what teacher wouldn't love some home 
baked cookies". Especially when they are made 
with love.  And why wouldn't you want to have
 a cute Apple card to go with them.

The cookies are made from the recipe off the back 
of the tollhouse chocolate chip package.  I  added an 
extra 1/2 package of chocolate chips to the mix because
 who doesn't love LOTS of chocolate chips.  I used 
my nestabilities to make the topped for the bags but, 
you could just use a rectangle and fold it in half.  The 
School Bus and Back pack came from the Doodlecharms
 cartridge and were cut at 2 1/2 inches.

The apple card was cut at 5 inches from the
Create a Critter cartridge.  Don't you love that
little tale sticking out.  What could it be?

Yes, it is a cute little worm.  I also used
Create a Critter to cut her out.  She is cut
at 2 1/2 inches and backed with a black 
shadow.  I added a few pop dots to give 
her a little lift off the card.  Since this 
cartridge doesn't include a card option I
 took out my poor neglected Gyspy and added
 2 apples to the mat, flipped one of them and
 then used the wonderful weld option.  I can't
 tell you how much I love the weld option on
 my Gyspy.  To get the green on the inside of
 the card I cut one more apple with the
 blackout feature.

With this being the first year that both my
daughters are going to be in Middle School
together I though I would celebrate with some
Blog Candy for you. If you would love
for me to send you some Blog Candy please
 leave me some Blog Love below.

~I am giving away a sample of the DCWV
Grade School 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 stack,
a package of apple stickers (that any teacher
 would love) a pack of school ribbon &
one of the best black pens money can buy
(at least I love them) ~

Queen of my Craftroom is having some blog candy also.
The sponsors for the hop are: Karbar digital stamps,
Jen's digi stamps & Hambo stamps.  Please leave me
a comment on my blog to be entered into the drawing.
All of us in the hop will be drawing one name from
 the comments and sending that name off to Michelle. 
 She will then draw from those names who the winner 
will be.  The drawing will end Sunday at 8:00 p.m.
