SPS September Blog Hop

Welcome hoppers! I hope you are enjoying the September blog hop from the Pumpkin Spice Blog. (If you wanna do the hop - and who doesn't - click here to start at the beginning). But hopefully you got here by way of the oh so talented Diana.

We're all doing projects centered around "Labor Day" or "Back to School" themes. I can't believe it's that time of the year already. Has summer really gone by? Time to get the kiddos back to school.

Here is my take on the "Back to School" theme. I created two cards to welcome back my daughter's two preschool teachers. I just love the sentiment "What an adventure!". Doesn't that just some up a school year.
