Greetings, 'Fetti Fans and welcome to the August HOP!  We have a lot to share with you today.  Be sure to see what everyone has created!  There is a link list at the bottom of this post.

It seems like summer just arrived and the kids were running out of the school doors yearning for poolside days and sunshine rays.  Here we are now on the cusp of the new school year starting.  I love the start of school, as it brings back routine to our household, but I will miss the laughter of the kids as they relish in the dog days of summer.
We are headed to meet the teacher today, and I thought I would bring along some extra supplies and something sweet for his teacher (we're told we got a good one this year - yay!).
I picked up a big tub of Skittles last weekend at Sam's Club and decided it would be fun to dress it up with an oversized "tag"...
 
I started with a PIERCED ROUND TOP PANELS layer cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I added the LIME GREEN striped paper from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad and then the HELLO & THANKS LABEL hexagon.
 
 
On that panel, I created a rainbow (OVER THE RAINBOW Confetti Cuts) using SALSA, ROSE, SUNSHINE, LIME GREEN, ICED AQUA and GRAPE SODA cardstock. 
The "the adventure begins" sentiment is from the CONGRATULATIONS stamp set and is stamped in RC AQUA ink.  I thought this was a fun sentiment for the beginning of the year!
The "hello" sentiment die is from the HELLO & THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut it out 3x from POLAR WHITE cardstock and glued them all together for a bit of dimension.
I added a few sequins and rhinestones for a fun and sparkly finishing touch.  This was such a fun tag/panel to create and the perfect addition to the Skittles jar.

Ok, now it's time for you to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew created for this fabulous hop!
