This hop is all about back to school.  Please make sure you visit all the won't want to miss a thing.  This is a 2 day hop and I will be featuring a different project tomorrow so please stop back.

My friend is a teacher and she had seen my Maude card that I've shown in the past.  She wanted a set for herself so I decided to make a back pack along with the set. The idea came from Splitcoaststampers but I didn't use the whole template.  Enjoy.

The base of the back pack I ended up using Plantin Schoolbook.  The pocket and pocket flap I used the template from Splitcoaststampers.....the link is above.
Papers are from DCWV Black Currant and my scraps
Cricut Cartridges-Sentimentals and Plantin Schoolbook
Martha Stewart corner rounder
Ribbon and eyelets are from my stash

A view of the back...

My blog candy...because I am in 2 hops back to back (this one and First Day Of Autumn from yesterday) I'm combining all comments together and picking one winner to receive a $20 gift card of their choice to either Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win simply leave a comment with a way to reach you.  Extra entries if you become a friend on my blog and Facebook as well as commenting on both hops.  I will use Random. org and announce the winner on Tuesday, September 27th.

Thank you so much for hopping by and be sure to stop back tomorrow for another creation.

Your next stop is Jessica at ScrappyLuvs.
