More Brown Bag Fun.. and a little Soap!

Happy Sept... HOW did that happen! Summer just flew right by me!!! I do LOVE fall.. but would like a couple more weeks of summer PLEASE! LOL! The kiddos have off until Sept. 8th.. so we are packing some FUN into these last few days of summer!!!

I have a couple shares for ya! :)

First up.. I made more soap! Oh my how I LOVE making this fun easy craft with Amanda! The longest thing about it is drying time! We made this one up for my sweet niece Allyson! She was so cute.. she tried to scratch out the frog! :)

I used Honey and Shea for the soap.. added some pink mica powder to the shea layer, honey is on top.. that is why it has a golden hue!

Supplies- Soap Supplies from - Bramble Berry, Eraser from Michaels, and Stamps-PTI

Next I have some more FUN goodies with lunch sacks! I cant stop making them!! Both Michelle and Melissa from PTI have shared some CUTE ideas.. here is my take on them! and I had a bag top cut from the ones I made HERE.. so I cut it in half again and made a little tag envie! I still want to make MORE!!

Supplies- Lunch Bags- Target! ;) Everything else from PTI! (SHOCKING I know! HA HA!)
I think I am gonna keep on making them like the ones from the blog hop.. I figure I get 2 goodies from one bag.. a pocket and a sack.. 2 for 1 I like it! HA HA! :) but then again.. you never know I could change and do the pockets again like this! ;) Keep ya guessing! HA HA!

Thanks for stopping by.. we are off to finish up the last few school things! :) then off to lunch.. FIRST I must find my coupon for bath and body works.. I need a few things.. (OK I dont.. BUT when you have a coupon.. a girl NEEDS to use it! right! :) )
