#97 at Mo's Back to School Gift Set

Well, it's my turn to host again this week so I decided that since I will be back to work after Labor Day that I would choose my theme as "Back to School". I guess summer vacation is over. I must say I had a great summer. but all good things must come to an end.

I thought "Harvard" was perfect for this theme. He is such a cutie, and of course in 4 more years I am hoping my son will be "Harvard" bound for law school. But lets let him finish his first 4 years of college first. Anyway, you can find "Harvard" HERE

I made this gift set as my back to school project. I altered this notebook and made a matching corner book mark which you can find at Splitcoast Stampers
HERE and of course since I am still dabbling with Fimo, this little set to go along with it.

A close up of the corner book mark:

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon, pin, button and charm are from The Ribbon Girl which. They really have so many beautiful charms and of course their gorgeous ribbons. You can find them all HERE I just tied three different ribbons on to the spiral part of the note book alternating the ribbons as I went down the spine. Giving it this full affect.

So I hope I inspired some of you and you play along with this weeks theme "Back to School" and don't forget to visit my Design Teams blogs for even more inspiration. They really are a talented bunch and would love hearing from you.

CUTE CUTE CUTE! Love that little guy, reminds me of Harry Potter (of course, because that's what I'm reading right now, lol, I'm kind of behind everyone else)! Love how this came together and the bookmark AND worm are just the cutest too! Funny, I've been making a few of these notebooks, you can't see them yet though. ;)
