This is a large hop... 26 talented people to get inspiration from... sit back grab a drink & enjoy!

My projects are going to feature files from Designs on Cloud 9
and my blog candy is a $20 Gift Voucher code for Designs on Cloud 9 at the end of day 2.

You must comment on both days to be eligible to win. It's that simple.
I would love for you to follow my blog too, but not necessary to win :0)

There will be a grand prize winner drawn from those who comment on all of the blogs both days. The grand prizes are from Designs on Cloud9 who is giving away a $20 gift certificate to their store (aside from the one I am giving). And Jens DigiStamps who will be giving away a $5 gift certificate to their store which is worth five digistamps. I would appreciate if you could take the time to check out their sites if you have time as we are happy to have them as our sponsors.

Since this is such a large line up I will give you until
8pm est. Sept. 30th to comment on BOTH posts!
My Winner will be announced Mon or Tues

Now onto the project...
I made this Teacher's Survival Kit
using an empty Crystal light container (the tall ones)

I added the buttons to hide the seems where I wrapped the paper around, made a mat and attached the survival poem.
A close up of the poem...
help yourself to the poem, I found it by doing a google search and combining a few I found

I couldn't leave the cap plain so , I put down some glue and sprinkled seed beads to pretty it up.
And here is a close up of the Adorable little Book~Worm and his apple for the Teacher

Hope you enjoyed Day 1 of the hop...
