2 Teach is 2 Love ~ Verve Inspiration Blog Hop

2teachmaureenplut

Good morning!  Welcome to Verve's August Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Divas to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

It’s a holiday Monday here in Canada so my son and his girlfriend are still here and leaving later today.  It’s been a fabulous wedding weekend!  Last week, before things got “crazy busy,”  I played with Amber’s Viva La Verve sketch.  I pulled out one of my Verve binders to flip through for inspiration, but didn’t get past the first page of the newest binder…ah, Teachers Count :)  Now, this is in NO WAY, in ANY shape or form, a reason to start promoting “Back to Sch@#%&” ideas!  HA!  It was just that I love this set so much :)
