Here's the hop listing in case you get lost along the way:

You are HERE *Lesley*

Our Amazing Sponsor: Doodlebug Design

Theme: Fruit Stand

Giveaway: Two Doodlebug prize packs filled with sweet, yummy goodies!

I loved working with Doodlebug's adorable paper! I created some thank you cards and gift bags for a couple of teaching colleagues, it is the end of the school year and I thought this paper would be perfect!. I also used some Thank You stickers from SRM Stickers

I created a 2, 5, 7, 10 box out of white card stock and used the paper to create a cute little gift box for our Secretary. I am going to fill the box with some fruit jellies! I saw the fun "Gift Wrapping" Challenge at Moxie Fab and decided to play along.

I also created another gift set for my teaching aide. She is wonderful and I thought she would enjoy this set, she loves green. I will be filling the bag with a coffee card and some other treats. The pear is a sticker, that comes in a whole set of fruit image stickers. So easy to use and lots of fun! I added some twine and ribbon to my projects.

For my final project, I decided to make a set of gift cards for a sweet friend. I made the cards clean and simple, and used some of the Doodlebug gems. SO PRETTY! 

All the cards fit into the glassine baggie. I LOVED how the stickers fit into the punches I have. Very easy to use and I love when everything matches!
