The Places You'll Go Sneak Peek

Today starts the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks!
This is the next edition to TE Giving Tree series. It's called The Places You'll Go and it helps support the Books for Kids Foundation. Their mission is to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children. Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. For each The Places You'll Go stamp set sold during the quarter, Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to the Books for Kids Foundation.
I have created this card below to give to Chloe as she starts 5th grade. The inside reads...
Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away! Dr. Seuss.
I've used the Places You'll Go Key Ingredients kit to create my card. Isn't this DP FANTASTIC? Fun, eh?! How about that cool button with ribbon! It's all included in this KI kit...you won't want to miss out on it ;)
Did you see the new Baker's Dozen?? I'm so excited to be working with everyone again for the next 6 months!

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with more ATS and Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! Told you it'd be a busy week :)
