{Review} Back to School with Hallmark SO SO Happy Cards™ & Pics 'n' Props: School Days Activity Kit

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Hallmark. I received product samples to facilitate my review. I received promotional items as a thank you for participating.
Hallmark would love to help you create memories as you head back to school! Did you know that Hallmark has a new line of cards from SO SO Happy and a Pics 'n' Props: School Days Activity Kit? Your student would love to find a surprise in their lunch box or book bag from SO SO Happy greeting cards! Your camera can capture the excitement of the first day of school or graduation, with the new Pics 'n' Props: School Days Activity Kit. 
Hallmark introduces a line of SO SO Happy cards™, party supplies and gifts aimed at encouraging love, acceptance and positivity among kids. SO SO Happy™ is a lifestyle brand from Entertainment One featuring more than 80 whimsical creatures that help pre-teens embrace individuality, build self confidence, and spread kindness. The Hallmark SO SO Happy line includes more than 20 cards for the beginning of the school year, birthdays and more. The cards feature fun messages from characters like Wink, who says: 'Be Yourself. No one can ever tell you you're doing it wrong.'
Who doesn't love getting a boost of confidence, love, and support in the mail? I was very excited to send a So SO Happy card™ to my brother who is a Senior in high school this year! He called me after receiving it, and thanked me for the reminder of starting the year off on the right foot! We then selected a card for my son's best friend, who is starting Kindergarten this year. He was so excited when he found his card in the mail box, that he put it in his new book bag to remind him that old friends are special, but making new friends is okay too! 
Photograph your child's first day of school and see your child's growth year by year with our chalkboard prop with inserts for preschool through 12th grade. The Pics 'n 'Props kit comes with a photo album, journaling cards, chalkboard, and chalk.

I am proud to have a first grader, and a nephew who is starting high school this year! Both guys are very excited about starting new schools, and I knew I would have to capture these moments with photographs! Have you seen the Pics 'n' Props kits? Everything you need to inspire great photos is all in one box! The provided inserts are artfully done, and so beautiful! (Did I mention, that I have horrible penmanship?) All I had to do was add a year and name, and then the chalkboard was ready to go! Making memories that my boys will be able to look back on, and capturing these moments with my camera, is just priceless!
My first grader!
My nephew is a freshman this year!
Do not let going back to school happen with out reminding those you love, just how very excited, proud, and supportive you are about their new journey! Back to School time is to be celebrated, and Hallmark would love to be a part of that celebration!
