Back to School Bash: Bash Basket 9!


Hey, friends!  How much fun is this?!  Really?!  It's like Christmas... only warmer.  :)  I won't blabber on and on too long because you are only about half-way done with this blog hop!  You still have eight more stops to go after this... and eight more chances to win!  You can do it!   You can persevere!  It will be worth it!  I promise!  So, without further adieu, let's just get down to business, shall we?!  {If you missed the beginning of the hop, just click HERE, and you can make your way back here!} 


Here's a helpful tip: 
Before you leave, don't forget to look for this little apple below to hop to the next prize! 


Okay!  Moving on!  :)  I have the great pleasure of sharing {quite possibly} the CUTEST cork board in the history of the world.  I am convinced that it would look adorable in my laundry room... or my kitchen... or my classroom.  Or anywhere.  Unfortunately for me... but fortunately for you... this beautiful custom fabric cork board from Married in May Designs will be going home with one lucky lady or gent!  Can't you picture it already?!  Wouldn't it just look adorable... anywhere...and everywhere?!  I die!  It's just too adorable.


As you can see, I am a slightly obsessed with burlap, so I am absolutely in love with this cork board and basically the whole store!




In addition to the adorable cork board, the winner will also receive the following files from my TpT shop:





Ready to enter?!  Let's do this thing!  :)
