Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

**This is my 2nd post today. Scroll down to see my Verve Project Parade Post**

Here we are again - another FABULOUS Blast from the Past Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions and friends! It's a super talented group once again this month, so be sure to stop by all of the participants' blogs and see what they've created!!

This month, I decided to pull out Make the Grade and Extra Credit to create a card for my 3-yr-old's preschool teacher. Dean's preschool actually goes year-round, so he's been in school all summer (even though the summer "curriculum" is much lighter than the "real" school year, which makes me chuckle a bit - it IS preschool, after all!!). But all of the teachers at Children's Garden are awesome! I always like to let them know they're appreciated, and what better way than a hand-made card!?


I stamped the schoolhouse from the Make the Grade set, colored with Copics, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals on top of a Kraft oval nestie. I chose my Copic colors to match the October Afternoon DP I used (Report Card & Fly a Kite). The card layout is from an old favorite SFYTT by Jen del Muro. (thanks, Jen!). I added some ribbon and the sentiment from Extra Credit and called it good!

That's it from me! Don't forget to stop by the rest of the blogs listed below for some awesome inspiration! Trust me, it will be worth it!!
