It's Time to Blast from the Past Blog Hop!

Can you believe it's ALREADY been a MONTH since the last hop?! I can't! But, here it is... time for Taylored Expressions' Blast from the Past Blog Hop. Today, I'm sorry, Sankari, but I didn't use your fabulous sketch - I was purpose-driven for this blog hop. My husband and I just bought new laptop bags, which is cool, however, we ended up with the SAME one. So, in order to make sure we don't end up with the wrong bag at work (little embarrassing, to say the least), I made a tag for mine to hook to the outside. Since I am a TOTAL coffee addict (and I agonized about which set to use last month), I grabbed for the Let's Do Coffee set. I apologize for the pictures, but my card reader slots on my computer aren't wanting to play, so I had to use my REALLY old point and shoot instead of something nicer to take the photos. I think you get the idea, though...
I tried to keep it professional and resisted the urge to go completely over the top. The first photo is how it looks from the front, the second is how it looks if it flips over (oh how I love double-sided paper!), and the last photo is the completed project in its natural habit. After you're done, here, head on over to Jess Willison's Farm Fresh Designs, or check out the other hoppers down below...
