“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

H2H Challenge - Back to school

Back to school is something that is inevitably creeping up on most of us if it hasn't happened already.  As a teacher I both dread and crave this time of year.  Dread the thought of giving up my free summer days but crave being back on a schedule and doing what I love to do, teach.  Well, in my preparations for the fall I decided that since I once again have a classroom that I can call my own, that I should make some things to put on my desk!  I had no idea that H2H was going to have this challenge but I think it works quite well.
Below you will see a little desk calendar/ photo holder that I made with some new products that CTMH is releasing on Sept 1.  I didn't really want to give away any sneak peeks, but you get one today!

Hooligans Level 2 Paper Pack
Mix and Mingle Album
Sunset Mini Medley
Black, Gypsy,  & Pear Inks
Moments in Time stamp set
Troublemaker Stamp set

Now head on over to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog and see what everyone else has created and get crafty!
