TE Blast From The Past Blog Hop!


Hi there!!  It's another month and time for the Taylored Expressions Blog Hop From the Past!!  I love these blog hops because it's a great time to see all of Taylor's customers give some older TE sets some much deserved LOVE!!  I know you've got a lot of hoppin' to do, so I'll get right to my card!



My girls just started back to school a little over a week ago and I'm in the school mood, so what better sets to use then Make The Grade and Extra Credit?  I am the "Sunshine Mom" at my youngest's elementary school, so that means I am responsible for giving each teacher a birthday card from the PTA on their birthday.  I love to use teacher or school themed sets when making their cards and this set is perfect for that!

I used the Blog Hop From the Past sketch designed by our own Sankari Wegman.  I paired that sketch with some scraps of October Afternoon dp from the Thrift Shop and Report Card lines.  I used some Farmer's Market Chocolate Twine and an EK Success Round Binding Edge Punch for the punched edge.  The buttons are from my stash.  A little machine stitching finishes it off!





Thanks for stopping by!
