SWEET SCHOOL TIME!

Hey everyone!

I'm back with another preview from The Greeting Farm!  Did you all happen to check out the Club Anya & Friends blog over the weekend to see the ADORABLE new "Oh, Boy" Ian previewed with the Saturday Sketch Challenge?   He's so cute!   Well we've got a SUPER SWEET counterpart to show off to you today...

INTRODUCING...SWEET ANYA!
I always do something fun ( bus shaped cake, apple cake pops, decorate their doors) for my kids on the first day of school just to take the sting out of it.  This year I made cute little door hangers, this one for my daughter and a more boyish one for my son.  I will fill them with pencils, treats and maybe an I-tunes gift card.  Sweet Anya looks like my DD when she was young so it is perfect for her.
You may remember this little 'sweetie' from the Design-your-Anya contest a few months back!  Sweet Anya is the brainchild of Barbara Sproat, who just happens to be joining us today for today's preview!   Please check out her creation and leave her some love!  Without her, today wouldn't be as SWEET by any means :)

What's more?  Barbara is GIVING AWAY a SWEET ANYA to one lucky commenter on her blog today, so be sure to visit and tell her how SWEET her design is!

And while you're at it, hop on over to the other DT's blogs because there are TWO MORE Sweet Anyas hidden away somewhere and you JUST MIGHT WIN one!

We'll be back on Wednesday with our "SWEET SEPTEMBER" Blog Hop, including the winners of SWEET Anya and LOTS more fun, so see you there (it starts on the TGF Blog on WEDNESDAY!) and have a VERY sweet day, everyone!

Hi Kim. This is super cute. I made my kids cards for the first day of school (Wed.) and I can not wait to give it to them. I think it helps them to know that we understand that it can be a little nerveracking starting back into it. Anyway, great project. I love the colors and Sweet Anya looks just so sweet on it. Hugs, Lisa g
