Hello Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great week!!  I know I am!

Today I am popping in to share a back to school creation I created using the Meljen's Design's Digital image
PenPal Mouse.

 This set contains some erasers, sharpeners and etc. for my dear daughter for school.  I wanted to make this set more fun.  The Little box uses the Bag it up template from Leigh Ann Baird. The Pencil holder I created on my own by just scoring and folding into a rectangular holder.  The image is colored with copics.  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  I had this fun ribbon in my stash and I think it was from Making Memories? The clip on the box is actually a large paper clip that I created into a bookmark.

Thanks for stopping by today and for your sweet comments!! They are so appreciated!!
