I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Reid's Backpack

Hello, and a Happy, Healthy New Year to those who celebrate. My new year is getting off to a bit of a rocky start. John and I both have pink eye and Elias has a cold. Dinner is all ready for tonight, I just don't know if anyone will enjoy it. We were planning on going to services tonight but I don't think anyone will want us around. LOL Hopefully we will be better tomorrow and can go then. On to Reid's backpack. Reid turns 5 (WOW) on Thursday. All he has been talking about is a suitcase on wheels. We thought he meant a backpack for school, but no he wants a suitcase so he can visit my mom in Massachusetts. Did I mention it had to be camo, yup, that's my boy. Once he has something in his mind, there was no changing it. I finally found what he wanted at L.L. Bean. Grandma is getting it for him. I thought I would make him this cute backpack and fill it with goodies. I found a great tutorial by Tonya on her site Stamp Happens.
She has a template you can copy right onto your cardstock. Let me know if you try it out. Thanks for stopping by. Sarah
Most Supplies Stampin' Up ( not the camo paper or the brown base)
Accessories: filigree assortment brads, wild wasabi ribbon (retired)
