CCC Blog Hop: Back to School

Hey there! Welcome to the first Blog Hop with the Catherine and Cathy Create Design Team. If you've come from Christine Wells's blog, you're on the right track. If not head back to the beginning of the hop to make sure you don't miss any of the awesome projects!

I was really lucky growing up in that my mom only worked part-time outside the house during my childhood. She drove me to school and packed my lunch pretty much every day all the way from elementary school through high school. (And yes, you understood that right, I did not have a car in high school. lol.) And even though high school, it wasn't rare for me to find stickers on my sandwich baggie. Since I've been really into tags and 3x3 cards lately, I thought it would be fun to make a little set of lunchbox notes. It took me no time at all to make these three and it would only take minutes more to make a whole slew of them. I love the idea of sending a cute little handmade note of love and encouragement in your child's lunchbox!

I've put a complete supply list for these little cards at the very bottom of this post, so make sure you scroll all the way down. But first, the business of the Blog Hop! How does some Blog Candy sound? The prize is the Label Love stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. :)
