Hugs & Kisses from Mom

I'm personally inviting you to play along with us for the August Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge. I KNOW you'll have a TON of ideas for this one!

Our theme:  All About School
Create a card or project with any sort of school theme - bookmarks, classroom charts, mini-album with pictures, gift for a teacher or classmate, pencil box.... the possibilities are endless! Get all the details and enter your project picture to the challenge gallery HERE.

My project: Back to School Mini Notes

I created a fun page with a pocket to hold mini notes that I'll be putting in my daughter's lunch box. So cute!! It's hanging on the wall in my craft room. If you wanted to, you could put magnets on the back and hang it on the frig.

All the notes fit in the pocket  - with room to spare. It's also a great place for other important slips of paper that need to be returned to school the next day.

To go with the school theme, I used chalkboard cardstock to die-cut. LOVE the stuff! And check out the cool paper clip. FUN!

I used 2 stamp sets from Crafter's Companoin to get a variety of sentiments that worked perfectly for my project:
I left a couple blanks so I can write my own note.

The little flower image is from Crafter's Companion - A New Leaf stamp set.

I've been putting little notes in my daughter's lunch for years. Finding a little love from "mom" tucked in their lunch box is sure to brighten a kids day :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
