Back to School week kick off + prize

Guess what? I’ve got a trio of articles happening @ this week that are all back to school related. If that’s not enough? I’ve got a FULL SCHOOL WEEK of prizes, projects, videos, and more right here to make it that much more fun!! Today you’ll find a trends & picks article going up, then a ‘kit pick’ and later in the week my first school layout of the 2011-12 school year!

Here on my blog, I’ve got a LOT planned too! Let’s kick if off withΒ a look at the NEW Fancy Pants school line:


Cute, right? Well guess what? The awesome gals at Fancy Pants sent me the off to school line you see me using (and loving!) and I’m feeling like I should share the love. So I’m gonna share some of my treats with one of you!!

Would you like to have the goodies pictured above? SO cute – even if you don’t have school aged kids! Just leave a comment here and I’ll draw the winner on Friday. Good luck –

  12. Looking forward to the additional school related posts and reading the Scrapbook Update articles. I like the Fancy Pants line as it seems really versitle. Considering my oldest is now in middle school, I like how “grown up” their school line feels.

  15. My little one is starting big school next year (in South Africa we start in Jan). So proud of her and she is super excited too!

  16. Yay! This looks like fun, and I’ve got a third grader who’s starting school on 9/1.

  17. Oh my, what a wonderful give away!!! I have 2 kiddo’s that we moved into college last Friday and a G-babe that just turned 3, so I have lots of reasons present and future =) to use this line. If I don’t win, I may just have to buy =)

    Have a Blessed day ~~ Dawn
