And we're back....

... to school this week.

We delivered treats to the teachers today, which I think were all appreciated.

However, I didn't want to leave out some special women that I work with.... the secretaries at the high school where I substitute teach. So I packaged up some cookies for them, too. And I made them their own tags, again, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: creating backgrounds with non-background stamps.


(I apologize for the not-so-great photo. I took it quickly before we left for our school division banquet this morning and didn't realize that it was a little blurry.)

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (Fancy Flourishes (background, Falling Leaves & Fillable Frames #9 (sentiment)), buttons, twine and die (Tag Sale #3). The twill was from a set of dishtowels I bought at Pier 1 Imports several years ago.

Thanks for looking!

What a nice gesture! You're so sweet, Leigh. I also like the idea of creating your own background with stamps. I knew there was a way for me to use those stamps more than I am! lol Thank you for the inspiration!

Love those tags! I don't have the Falling Leaves set, but you're making me want to add it to my wish list! Beautiful job. I'm sure the recipients loved them!

What great packaging. It was 98 degrees here yesterday, and those tags are making me really want fall. I love how you put leaves on the trees and on the ground. How did I never notice that stamp set before? Fortunately, I just got Fancy Flourishes on the forum.
