Back to School Blog Hop - Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Designs

Hello crafty friends! School is back on, yaay!! Well, for some of us, lol. I have to drive my daughter every morning to and from school because we do not like the school ratings of our school district. Anyways, back to school means MORE time to craft! I have made two projects in one week and today I will show you my first one. Make sure you come back next week to see the other back to school craft I made.

Did you know that The Digichick store crashed? Boy was that a mess! Kelleigh and the other talented designers that to work really hard to put their designs back in the web, the store is back up and working and we decided to just do a hop for the reopening of Kelleigh's store.

I have used this classic shape: Fancy Bag Template.

This template was so easy to put together, only one glued spot and that's it done! I decided to modify the use of this template, I added a money card holder from the silhouette store, as a front pocket. I added a cute school bus brad and a sticker as sentiment. I love the end product, this is too cute!

While you are at Kelleigh's store, don't forget to check out the other awesome templates, they are a must have! Take a look at the Gable Box and the Candy Dispenser, these two templates would make an awesome addition to your digital files.
