H{ippity} HOP Hopping.. Back to School


H{ippity} HOP.. Monday
This weekend we were watching Blue's Clues and to my surprise.. Steve mentioned something about having a Hippity Hop Hopping time.. hahaha... I laughed out loud.. cause, he said Hippity HOp!!
Yes, these things amuse me... but I am sure I have watched this video several times and never caught on. I am slow..hehe
It is Monday , one week away from the kids going back to school. Grade 10 and Senior Kindergarten.. Well, both kids don't want to go back yet.. only us Adults think this is a good idea. I do love having them home but I need some me time to get some things done. Really I just want a clean house for more than 10 minutes.
And, speaking about back to school.. we have this weeks challenge by Kelly.. and it is about
BACK TO SCHOOL
So lets see some cards or layouts about Back to School.. you can find the challenge here in the Ippity Forum.
I did this card using some Cosmo Cricket papers from the Boyfriend set.
I also used some Ippity stamps from the Authentic Man ,Book It, and Quotes A'La Happy..

This weekend I also ran out of flowers so I made a whole lot of these..
Spiral Rosette Flowers.
With the help from my kiddos.. we managed to make about 60 of them..all different colours and sizes.. pretty don't you think, I also sprinkled some of them with glitter. They will be used for some upcoming projects. I need to make some different flowers this coming weekend.. just to have them handy to place on a card or layout.
I just love paper flowers.

Now it is time to keep on H{ippity} HOP Hopping over to see what the DT and Ippity participants have to show you on this wonderful H{ippity} HOP MONDAY. The main list of participants can be found on the Ippity Blog.
Have a great day.
Hugs,
Angie
